Easter Jam

Hosted by Sonya



Now when I think of Easter,
I don’t think of material things.
I use it as a reminder
Of the joy it brings.
Who?
This game jam is another one of the seasonal holiday game jams hosted by Princess Sonya and Empress DAX.  This Easter Jam is our second Easter holiday themed game jam, the last time we had an Easter jam was in 2018.

When?
We will hold the Easter jam for THIRTY (30) days from April 1st, 2021 thru April 30th, 2021.

Where?
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!

What?
The theme for the Easter Jam is holiday festivities on Easter day.

For visual novel entries, to help you kick start your Easter 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.
  • Once there was a tortoise and a hare.... they had a race to see who ran the fastest.... we all know how this story ends, but what if there was some chick involved?
  • This year, me and my siblings are having a competition to see who can find the most easter eggs. However, I'm not confident I can win this year's. Especially what happened last year this very day....
For other types of entries such as dress-up games and resources, you are required to create Easter themed content.

Rules
  • 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)
