Frequently Asked Questions

When is the jam?
The jam always starts on the second Friday of the month, at 4 PM UTC-4

Do I have to do everything myself?
Not at all! If you want to use public domain art/sounds or the like, that’s entirely fine. And we encourage jammers to team up, too!

Can I use stuff I’ve already made?
To an extent.
The spirit of the jam is that you make something new, not rejig an existing game to fit the criteria.

Can I update the game during the voting period?
No, unless it is a severely game breaking bug.
If this is the case, please contact the organizers on Discord; they will review on a case by case basis.
Please playtest your game both in engine and as an export on your itch.io game page!
