The theme is…
Kwalee uses 3 principles to define a hyper casual game. These 3 principles are:

What is a Game Jam?
A Game Jam is essentially a hackathon for video games. It is a gathering of people for the purpose of planning, designing, and creating one or more games within a short span of time.
How Do I Submit My Game?
You submit your game simply by clicking here. Upload your bbdoc to a Dropbox folder, get the link, and fill out the form to submit. Make sure you submit before the end of the Game Jam! Late submissions are not accepted.
Who can participate?
Anyone can participate in a Game Jam. Usually participants are made up of video game developers, video game players, and anyone who wants to make a game.
What is the Game Jam Theme?
The theme is HYPER CASUAL. Be sure to check out the theme announcement video for more info!
Who Picks the Winner?
The Kwalee team and Buildbox team will be collaborating. We will collect all of your BBDOCs and pick out the game that we think is best overall. We will definitely factor in how well you use the theme in our decision. Please refer to our Guidelines PDF for more information about the assessment criteria.
Who is allowed to join? Teams or Individuals?
We welcome both! Both teams and individuals are allowed to enter. Keep in mind that a team places in the top 3, they must split up or share a prize.
Can you use Buildbox 2, Buildbox 3, and/or Buildbox Free?
Yes! You can absolutely use any of them. We do ask that you only submit one BBDOC.
What’s the game type?
You’re free to decide the type you wish to create. As long as it’s not a direct copycat of another game and follows the rules and incorporates the theme, we’re good. We do not want to restrict your creativity so go for anything you want.
Will artwork and sounds be provided?
Nope. You are free to use whichever art or music you want as long as you have the permission to do it (you’ve purchased it or it’s licensed to you, you own it, you drew it, etc). Again, we do not want to restrict anyone’s creativity and have a bunch of games which look the same.
Can we upload a game already created if it matches the theme?
No. That would be the same as cheating. You can only start working on your game once the jam has started.
Where are updates about the Game Jam located?
We will be announcing the theme and other updates on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Email, Youtube, Buildbox Forum, and Buildbox Discord. Follow these accounts below!
