What is the Jolly Jam?

The Jolly Jam is the 2018 Winter game jam contest hosted annually on CloudNovel. This year it is hosted by the CEO Sonya in celebration of the new website that will be released on January 1st, 2019 (New Years Day). The theme of the Jolly Jam is to create a Winter themed or Holiday themed visual novel OR dress up game.

What dates does this run?

December 1st - February 4th

How do I sign up?

Click the red "enter" button and you will be officially added to the list of participants! You can see the list of participants below on the bottom of this page!

What are the requirements of this contest/jam?

  • You can enter the jam alone or as a team (please inform the judges in case you're entering as as team).
  • You are allowed to use free assets for your entry, but you must credit their owner.
  • You can start making your game anytime, but it can't be something you entered in a previous jam. If you enter an old work for the current jam, you need to add some new content specifically for the jam.
  • You can start publishing/updating your work from December 1st onward. Any content published before said date won't be considered as part of the jam but it will influence the overall judging of the game.
  • You have to publish the final version of your entry within February 4th midnight (Sonya's time or Eastern Standard Time).
  • Judges will have one week to play the games and the results will be announced within two weeks from the end of the jam.

You will be judged on the following aspects:

  • Relevance (to prompt)
  • Design (art, GUI, etc)
  • Plot (writing, VN idea)
  • Creativity
  • Overall Development: how all 4 elements above are synthesized to create a fluid, engaging Visual Novel
  • Length/completion (note that only content made AFTER signing up to the contest is counted)

 

For dress up games:

  • Art must be made by entrée
  • Background and music can be free resources but must be credited

Judges will consider how many pieces there are and how good the art is.

 

All participants will also get a Jolly Jam Badge (available on the new site)
