Hey everyone, we will be updating rules with new playtest versions quite often as we work on this. If you find the description of a rule unclear let me know here. We will have a more complete feedback form attached later, but clarity might get in the way early, and I want to be open to changes asap.

Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate Gatsby coming to the public domain.
From platformers to board games, to rhythm games (real jazzy) I was so excited to see all the different takes on the medium.
We are hoping to play & spread awareness of these great games and creators. Both through social media, & gathering players for a fun time on the discord. If you checked something out please remember to drop a review for people; it does wonders on this website.
If you are going to submit a game after the "due date" let me know, times are weird, and no reason you should worry about it not being done yet. Gatsby is the publics' plaything now, you can do whatever you want with it.
Thanks again for all these wonderful games and for embracing the idea.
Common sentiment right now is that working is very very hard. This should be fun, not stressful. So we are going for an extra 2 weeks. Don't stress out about your entry, and if you get stuck feel free to come by the discord and ping KittyCrusade for some rubberducking time.
Hey, all! Tomorrow at 9 p.m. EST, Alex and I are going to host a stream where we make our Gatsby Jam game live, talk to some other designers, and play some games! We'd love for you to join us and talk about your game ideas!
And our discord is already linked on the game jam page.
Yeah, I tried to make it so you could do some of them online, but everything is difficult nowadays. A good way to adjust for missions like GALA is by look at people's selfies as you scroll through social media!
Thanks for playing and letting me know how it went! :) Glad you had fun!
Our small idea evolved into a 17-page story. We wrote "3 Threads" with a focus on how Folk Lore and Oral History transpire into actual stories. The choices you make while playing directly translate into a pick-your-own-adventure-poem when you are done the adventure. If anyone feels like checking it out I would be happy to send out copies. Email me at Alexander.Wyatt.Sprague@gmail.com. We are always looking for feedback from creators and would love to have more people check it out.
