Rules

The Epic Game Jam is based on one main theme that jammers have to integrate one way or another into their creation.

- INTERPRETATION OF THE THEME IS OPEN -

If the theme can be recognized, perceived or experienced as such (even in a broad sense) by the gamers, the game is considered legit.

What is so special about the Epic Game Jam is that an undisclosed number of subthemes will be added along the way.

- THE MORE SUBTHEMES YOU INCLUDE IN YOUR GAME, THE MORE epic points YOU GET -

Successful kid is epic

Keep a close eye on @EpicGameJam or on this website to be sure you don’t miss any of them. Whether or not you decide to embrace this extra challenge is completely up to you, but it sure will spice up your creativity!

- WHO GETS TO CHOOSE THE THEMES? -

Well, dear jammers, YOU! Share your ideas and tweet us your suggestions @EpicGameJam or add them directly here on the website. The main theme and all the other subthemes will then be picked by lucky draw.

Jammers are asked to create their game from beginning to end in the prescribed time (here, 45 hours). The projects, in their final version, have to be uploaded no later than the deadline indicated by the countdown timer on the website.

- PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO TIME -

Jammers are free to use all their favorite techniques, platforms, tools, languages and frameworks.

- NO RESTRICTIONS IN FORMAT, OR CONTENT* -

If you are not making them yourself, please don’t forget to credit the creators of the scripts and assets you download in your finished game!

*We keep an open mind and love Creativity with a capital “A”. Please note however that we reserve ourselves the right to exclude all productions that are gratuitously disrespectful or offensive, or simply contradictory to the values that the Epic Game Jam holds at heart.
