Next jam:

There have been 100 of these now? 😮

Rules

When?

Every Saturday at 20:00 UTC. The time in your local time and a countdown-timer should be in the top of the site though.

Where?

Right here! Joining our IRC channel (#1hgj on afternet.org) is however a good idea.

Is there a theme?

Yes! At the start of the hour, the theme is announced on the site and in the IRC channel (#1hgj on afternet.org). Themes are suggested and voted by the community.

How long do I have to finish?

:D

Do I have to submit within the hour?

No. Keep working on your game until it's done, then submit.

Can I use premade assets?

You are free to use premade assets but it is recommended that you make at least one game from scratch. Some assets are provided on the assets page.

Do I have to host the games myself?

Yes, you'll need to host the game and submit the links here. We do host the thumbnail though. If you don't have a website yourself, use something like dropbox / google drive, or itch.io / newgrounds. Ask in IRC for more suggestions.

What happens after the jam?

About 30 minutes after the jam ends, we host a stream on Twitch where all submitted games are played. The stream usually lasts about 2 hours. It's not always the same people streaming though, so keep an eye on the IRC channel to see who's streaming.

What if I don't finish in time?

If you finish and submit your game before the stream ends, we'll play it on stream, even if it took you more than an hour to finish.

Can I participate after the jam has ended?

If you come late you can still participate. If the stream is over, then your game won't be played on-stream, obviously, but we'll still keep it on the site!
