GAME JAM GUIDELINES

1 The theme is ‘Play to Win,’ so your challenge, if you choose to take it, is to use Buildbox to create as many ‘play to win’ themed games as possible before the submission deadline on 9/6 at 3:49 PM PST!

Play to Win Game Examples:

2 Game must be created using the Buildbox game development software and must follow the set theme.

3 All assets used to build the game should be owned by you, licensed to you, you have permission to use, or is under the creative commons license.

4 Entire game must only be created during the time allotted. Please do not use or submit games that were created before. Honesty is the best policy!

5 Game must be funny, unique, memorable, stylish, disturbing, original, emotional, bizarre, touching, outlandish, soothing, exciting! Avoid clones at all costs. If you can’t win on production value, you can win on ideas.

6 Entries will be submitted through this form. Upload a short video featuring your game to a Dropbox/ GDrive folder (or YouTube) and fill out the form to submit. Make sure you submit before the end of the Game Jam! Late submissions are not accepted.

7 Buildbox Game Jam has an Inclusiveness Policy & Code of Conduct and expects all participants to abide by it — don’t be a jerk and you’ll be fine.

8 By submitting your games to the Buildbox Game Jam, Buildbox has the right to use the game for marketing purposes. All other rights to the Buildbox Game Jam submissions belong to the developers and the creators. Buildbox or any other third-party (e.g. Kwalee) does not own the rights to the submitted games.

9 Be nice, be a good sport, collaborate, be creative… But most of all, have fun!
