Game description advice

The first impression matters, so clear and detailed description can give you chance to attract more players and create awareness for your game!

Here are some points you can include to the description.

  1. Overview on gameplay, setting and development stage

  2. Screenshots, videos, if we can’t play the game show us what we missed

  3. Description on how to run the game, make it clear and easy to understand what we gotta do if the game doesn’t work in browser

  4. Updates, let everyone know how the game evolves during the event and what new features you add

  5. Your team, we’d like to know our heroes!

  6. Contacts, keep in touch in case you are looking for help or want to have instant connection with the audience

 

Remember! It’s not required to include any of these points, it’s all up to you!  

 

FAQ

Q: I have a number of projects, do I have to choose one?

A: No, there is no limit for projects per participant/team.

 

Q: I have been working on my game for a while already, can I participate?

A: Of course! Just ensure your game isn’t released/ launched/ published yet. 

 

Q: Am I allowed to update the build after submission?

A: Yes, you are, however there is no way we can guarantee that the jury hadn’t looked into your game already, so your update might be left unnoticed. Make sure you update the build as soon as possible.

 

Q: What is the required platform we develop for?

A: The main requirement is the playable alpha version. The platform is unimportant as long as you provide us with the clear description on how can we can run your game. Of course, PC or browser would be the ultimate decision, however it’s up to you!

 

Q: I have missed the start of the Jam, can I still take part into it?

A: Sure, you can register a minute before the end, however your game wouldn’t be noticed. So if you are late maybe you should consider joining an existing team rather than creating your own project.
