Game Jam information

Event has ended, thanks for participating!



Hey there! This is all the information you need, such as the guidelines and how to register your team. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below or engage in a conversation with me.

Guidelines​

  • No external compiler tools are allowed
    • This means that you are not allowed to use a tool that allows you to input code or text to convert it to a DiamondFire template. Simply: you can only use your game client. Example: a library allowing you to convert your Java code (or code from another programming language) to a template is not allowed
  • Templates are allowed, but there is a limit! It is up to a certain threshold:
    • It must be widely applicable to the community. This means it needs to be able to be used in a wide variety of games!
      • This will be checked by event referees/admins
      • It is up to your best judgement. If you're unsure, please ask a referee. You can find a referee in the DiamondFire Events Discord server
      • Example: Things like code-utils song code would be fine
    • While you can use functions or processes from a template in order to help start the plot, purely using templates just to finish the plot is not allowed. Templates are here to help you, not to do the plot for you
  • Your plot must be a new (or cleared) plot before starting! You cannot work on an existing one in progress
  • Support sessions are allowed, but please don't overuse them. If you are trying to get your plot finished from support sessions—you will be disqualified. Use it in moderation

Theme Connection - 20​

Originality - 20​

How original or innovative the game is.

User Experience - 10​

How good the user experience is in terms of bugs and LagSlayer.

Visual Design - 10​

Gameplay Design - 7​

How well designed the gameplay elements are.

Sound Design - 3​

whats the point of this one? most tools like this are publicly available anyway
Just don't use a Java to template conversion, or any other language that can convert your input to a type of format that you can use in the server. It may give you an advantage. You can use mods like CodeUtils though

Is it only the winner who gets prize tickets, or is it by how you placed in the game jam?
