How closely your game follow the theme and how you choose to perceive the theme, is entirely up to you.
When users rate your entry, they will judge it for how well they think it incorporates the theme. In our experience, entries that only loosely follow the theme are often poorly rated, so we recommend not going too abstract.
Your game is only considered submitted once a playable version of your game is present on the website via your entry.
You can only submit one copy of your game to the website. Duplicates will be removed.
If you are unable to submit your game to the website, e.g. due to technical difficulties, please ask for help with submission and include the necessary files and information required for a standard submission.
You are allowed to port your game to other platforms, such as macOS, provided that a) the content in your game remains the same, and that b) you only fix issues relevant to the platform that you're porting to.
The ability to upload a new port is disabled after 48 hours from when the game jam has ended.
Artistic content includes, but is not limited to, sprites, backgrounds, images, photos, artwork, sounds, music and recordings.
