Game was released before the jam began, and has nothing to do with the theme. Disqualified for breaking the rules.

Absolutely not! It can involve ANY type of family or family dynamic. Something like what you're describing would be fine, so long as it's clear they're some sort of family or family-like unit, and a tradition of that unit is recognized somehow.
Any questions that come up for the jam will be listed here!
- Does the MC have to be part of the family?
- Nope! As long as there is some sort of Family Tradition in the game, it still counts! For example: a hitchhiker who happens to become the family's next...guest works!
- Does it have to refer to or be a traditional family with a husband, wife and one or more kids? Can I instead do a tribal family structure which an entire village is considered one big family?
- Absolutely not! It can involve ANY type of family or family dynamic. Something like what you're describing would be fine, so long as it's clear they're some sort of family or family-like unit, and a tradition of that unit is recognized somehow.
- What does No Fan games really mean?
- Anything that would be considered NOT public domain (EG: Sonic the Hedgehog, Cloud from FF7, etc). Properties such as the SCP Foundation and the monsters therein are fair game, since they are mostly considered public domain.
Q: If my game is too big, what should I do?
A: Itch.io only allows 1GB of compressed game data (and 30GB uncompressed, I believe) to be uploaded without contacting support. If support isn't bale to get back to you in time, then you CAN upload it as an external file.
Just click that link and follow the prompts. Files hosted on other sites are allowed.
Any questions you may have about the jam or any rules that seem unclear, please ask them here!
Q: If I commission a judge for some assets (art, music, plugins, etc) do I forfeit any prizes?
A: No. If the judge is ONLY being commissioned to provide assets and is NOT actively working on the script (writing) for your project OR is a member of your team, then it's considered the same as purchasing assets from a storefront. The category is judged on the USAGE of the assets, not their QUALITY.
Q: Can I include you or your Hawk in my game?
A: Yes! I'd be flattered. You have 100% permission to use my likeness or use my HawkZombie avatar. But please refrain from including my family members (making ones up is fine, though!). Also, please do not include my original characters from my games or novels without permission.
Ok. Now I'm stuck after freeing the vampire. I have no idea where to go or what to do. I gave candy to the magic ball in the attic, and it gave me a code, but that doesn't work on the safe in the basement. The spiders also kill me when I try to put in the code.
You CANNOT beat the Water Temple boss in Versions 1.01 & 1.02. The bubbles don't explode upward when you light them on fire. Only in version 1.00. You can import your first save to try and beat the boss.
