Ocean Paradise Jam

Hosted by Sonya

Beneath the waters of the ocean deep, lies a secret wonder unbeknownst to man. Where the sirens and mermaids lay dormant till the dolphins and the shark roam beneath the summer sun. This is where all the magic of the sea lie, and it is time for the magical creatures of the deep to emerge once more to shore. Come and join us in this ocean paradise.

Who?

This game jam is another one of the 4 seasonal game jams that the heads of CloudNovel, Princess Sonya, Empress Dax, Fluff, etc, host each season. This Jam, the Ocean Paradise Jam, is our third annual Summer Jam.

When?

The summer jam this year will be taking place during July 15 2019 thru September 1st 2019.

Where?

You're already here! The jam will be hosted here on CloudNovel. To join, create a team for your project or join an existing team to participate in building a game project!

What?

The goal of the jam is to create a game around the theme of the ocean, beach, or anything to do with summer fun in the water! (No pools, it has to be natural water from the sea/ocean).

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 collaborator). In the case of a team entry, the prize will be split among the members.
-You can’t enter an existing game.
-Fangames aren’t considered as a valid entry. Your work must be original. No plagiarism especially art theft shall be tolerated.
-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 deadline until results are out.
-It must follow the rules to apply a visual novel as listed (rules here https://cloudnovel.net/forum/rules/fluffness/apply-a-visual-novel-to-be-listed)

And don't start your project before Jam officially started

Entries must have more than 3000 words to be considered as valid entries.
You are allowed to use free assets for your entry, but you must credit their owner (make sure the resource can be used for commercial projects).
The final version of your game must have at least around 30 mins of gameplay (otherwise you won’t receive the reward)

Dress Up Games’ Rules:

The art must be original.
