You may start now, the jam will end December 8th, 4:35 pm EST. We'll be opening signups near the end of the jam. That way, you won't have to worry if you don't finish your plot in time, or your team undergoes member changes
Please only submit plots that you are content with.

Each team will have a limit of 4 members, including yourself.

Game Jam Rules
  • 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
