Hey folks! There were a lot of great games with a large amount of content so we’re pushing judging back by a week so that we can make sure every judge has time to play all the top picks! The judging stream and announcement of winners is now scheduled to take place at 6PM CT on June 5th! Mark yer calendars!
EDIT: We moved the stream date to June 12! Thanks for being flexible!

See this topic on what to expect during and after the stream! https://itch.io/jam/dogpit-sim-jam/topic/798360/judging-brackets-livestream
Hey folks! The livestream of the entries will take place on Friday the 22nd, Saturday the 23rd, and Sunday the 24th. An exact schedule of what games will be played when will be posted by Wednesday! Judging is tentatively scheduled for 7PM CT on Friday, May 29, but if judges have conflicts it may be postponed. All streams will take place on https://twitch.tv/manuelaxibanya
What to expect during the livestream
Games will be divided randomly among judges. Each judge must play every game in their assigned block before the livestream. (They can play all the games in the jam, they just HAVE to play the ones in their block.) Each block will be streamed with their judge as guest, and myself going in blind and playing the games for the very first time.
What to expect after the livestream
After this, judges nominate top picks from their block. There is no minimum and no limit to the number of nominations per block. (So potentially no games or potentially all games could be nominated as a top pick.) Judges can also nominate games from other blocks as top picks. Every judge MUST play ALL the top picks. A game that wasn't nominated as a top pick is still eligible to win, but if nobody went to bat for it at this stage, it's not very likely that it will.
Judging deliberations will take place during the week and are prerecorded then edited for time. The deliberations will be streamed the soonest Friday afterward (likely to be the 29th.)
How winners of judged categories are selected
The winner of every category except Community Choice is determined by consensus; there is no voting among judges. Each judged category is considered one by one with Game of Jam as last. Every category except Game of Jam will have a winner and runner-up selected. If the winner of Game of Jam was the winner of any previous category, the runner-up is promoted to winner of that category. That means it's not possible for one game to sweep EVERY category.

Who are the judges?
You will be judged by a diverse assortment of game developers, streamers, and voice actors. Confirmed:
Lineup may change, final judge list will be posted with stream schedule on Wednesday.
I picked this theme because you could interpret it many ways. Here are some suggestions:
- in a way related to the idiomatic expression
- temperature (degrees)
- angles (degrees)
- a title from a university or other postsecondary education (a degree)
- physics and gravity (matter)
someone on twitter joked about making a game about deodorant because of the brand "Degree" and I consider that valid!
heh well it looks like a lot of the builds I tried to kick off went through after all (I tried several times in the hopes that it would go through!) interestingly I hadn't tried to push in about 5 hours yet two builds somehow manage to squeak through an hour ago. v strange.
