Sorry, but this game was removed from Minimalistic Jam 3 because in the rules it says "Your game must be made within the allowed time period" and this game was clearly made before the jam even started.

The submission period for games ends today (9 am pacific time). I hope everyone had fun and enjoyed this game jam.
The one week rating and review period for games will start today. You will be able to rate each others games on 3 criteria: mechanics/gameplay, creativity, overall score. You will be able to see the voting results on July 23rd, 9 am pacific time. This rating thing is just for fun, so please don't take it to seriously or get upset about what scores your game got.
The discord server for this jam will close two weeks from now on July 30th, 10 am pacific time. I'm closing it because this is the last Minimalistic Jam I will be hosting.
Hopefully you can make 8 bit music work for your game because the guitar doesn't sound anything like 8-bit. It would be unfair if I said you can use guitar music while everyone else still has to use 8 bit music, sorry.
Sorry, but the rules say "Your game must be made within the allowed time period.". If you just remake/change a game you're already working on, that would not be considered as something you made during the allowed game jam time.
I was planning to close this server down and not do any more jams but after listening to people I've changed my mind. There will be a Minimalistic Jam 3 from july 9th to july 16th. Here's the link https://itch.io/jam/minimalistic-jam-3 . By the way some rules have been changed so it'd be great to hear your thoughts on that.
Sorry, you can't use lighting because I didn't specify anything about it in the rules so it would be unfair to all the people who made their game without lighting. You can use shadows but the main color from them counts towards the color max. Good luck on your game :)
Both wouldn't be allowed because when I say gradient I mean something like this . It Goes from one color to a different color and the two main colors (green and brown) count towards the 10 color max and if it's part of the sprite the two main gradient colors count towards the 2 color max for the sprite.
In this jam each color that has it's own "color code" is considered a separate color. However, there is an exception to this in the rules. Rule: "Gradients are allowed but no more than 3 objects/sprites/backgrounds in total with a gradient and the two main colors from the gradient count towards the 10 color max.". So basically you can still do shading with gradients but you have to follow that rule. Btw you could also do shading using dithering.
