While there are no limits to your imagination, we ask you to respect the following guidelines.

1. Must be relevant to the theme. 

2. You cannot use any game projects you have started previously but you can use a template or kit that you have as a base. Your game must be created from scratch (but you are free to use assets of course) and submitted before the deadline of the game jam. We will not accept late submissions.

3. Must be in English or have English subtitles. 

4. NSFW is allowed, however, please be tasteful about your selections of presentation. 

5. We reserve the right to use images or videos of your submissions for marketing the competition. However, we have no rights over your game. 

6. You must have a settings screen / pause menu. 
This must include: Volume control, pausing the game, ability to quit the game. 

7. Have fun with it!


Judging will be based on the following criteria:

1. Theme Relevance - How well does your game work with the theme? Games all have to be based on the theme but don’t be afraid to explore all the different ways to approach the theme. Think outside the box!

2. Creativity/Originality - We love quality games, but we also want games that grab our attention and show us something new.

3. Catch on Quick - We want games that are intuitive, we should be masters of your game’s controls in less than 30 seconds.  We will critique how easy your game is to pick up and play. 

4. Fun - We’re gamers too so for us the most important thing is that the game is fun!

5. Frequency and Quality - Work in progress screenshots and videos will contribute to the finial judging.
