Beach Jam

Hosted by Sonya



Waves come crashing to grey sullen shores.
Powerful and strong, it breathes and roars.
Cascading and caressing each grain of sand,
A warm embrace between sea and land.

This game jam is another one of the seasonal holiday game jams hosted by Princess Sonya and Empress DAX.  This Beach Jam is our 6th summer themed game jam!


We will hold the Beach jam for NINETY (90) days from June 1st, 2021 thru August 31st, 2021.


You're already here! The jam will be hosted here on CloudNovel. To join, create a team for your project entry or join an existing team to participate in building a game project or drawing/design a character, background, object/item, GUI set, or composing a music/soundtrack or sound effect!


The theme for the Beach Jam is festivities in summer.

For visual novel entries, to help you kick start your summer entries, we will give you several prompts that you can use. It is NOT required to use these prompts, and we encourage you to work on your original idea, but these prompts are here to help you start your project if you have no idea to start.
  • Finally, summer is here, and my classmates and I are going camping at my family's summer house. We will be eating watermelons, going out on ghost hunts in the summer nights, it'll be so fun.... what's the worst that can happen?
  • This summer, I met a girl who is new to town. She's always alone and so mysterious. On a chance meeting, I bump into her alone at the beach... could this be the start of a summer romance? Who is this girl?
For other types of entries such as dress-up games and resources, you are required to create summer themed content.


  • You can enter the jam alone or as a team (please choose one member as a representative to enter the jam and make sure you add other teammates as collaborators). In the case of a team entry, the prize will be split among the members. To enter alone or as a team, you must create a team card. For those entering alone, just mark the team as closed to accepting members.
  • Fangames or fanart aren’t considered as a valid entry. Your work must be original. No plagiarism, especially art theft, shall be tolerated.
  • If you are entering a game, you can enter a demo of your game, but you won’t be able to receive the prize until you finish your game. Only finished games are eligible for final rankings.
  • You have to publish your entry within the contest period. Once the time is over, we will decide how many points to give you based on what you have done until then. If your entry is a demo, you have to complete the game afterward (no time limit) to get the prize, but what you make after the contest period won’t add any extra points. Please refrain from updating your game after the deadline until results are out.
  • All entries must be listed so it is required to follow the listing guide so it can be listed on the site. (Listing Guide here: https://cloudnovel.net/forum/rules/DAX/listing-guide)
