The Public Domain Jam (starts today!)

Posted by Nutcasenightmare - May 16th, 2014


PublicDomainJam.com (starts today!)
A week-long game jam (May 17-24) to celebrate the public domain!

- - -

- Loom Turbo (worth $500) for best game in each category
- Kenney Game Art Pack for best 100 games

Why are there so many Zombie games?

They're everywhere coz zombies are both well known and free to use, since they're part of our public domain. But there are SO MANY other stories and characters out there that are also free to use! The War of the Worlds, Moby Dick, Aesop's Fables, Odysseus, Thor... you name it. Whatever the reason, a lot of these stories aren't out there in games yet.

SO LET'S MAKE SOME!

Is Twine an acceptable platform for building such a game? Twine itself is open-source, and the result is a single HTML/CSS/Javascript page. I can't find anything in the rules disqualifying a game that's just web browser-based with no executable component.

Yup! The founder of the jam (I'm just a prize sponsor + animator) explicitly said Twine is a-okay:

Good luck, and have fun! :)

Hey, fun idea. ^^

Thanks!

Did you know

This is an amazing idea. I can't wait to see the games that spawn from this, will the games be submitted on NG? Will there be a thread?

I'd totally do it, but I'm busy.
But idea:
Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde NES remake but good.

You alive?

YOU WILL WIN (everyone wins)

:the game: , REMAGNIE , REPLAYING
ALL BEST GAMES!
