Relic Game Jam #5


Welcome to the fifth annual Relic Castle Game Jam!

For the uninformed: a game jam is an event where developers will get together and make a game. It sounds simple at first glance, but making a good game is much more difficult and time consuming than you might think. Participating in one is a great way to challenge yourself, learn new skills, and polish your overall experience as a game developer.

Another year, another game jam! Our fifth game jam might not be too different from previous years, but we're nonetheless incredibly excited to see those familiar faces and newcomers alike! Year after year, everyone impresses us with how creative and unique their entries are -- and we don't think this year will be any different.

The Pokémon fan game community is an amazing place, and that's all thanks to each and every one of you. Take pride in that, and your hard work! Let's make this game jam a special one!

Additional thanks to @Cilerba for letting us re-use the game jam logo from last year!

If I make my tileset public today will it count as usable?
(I Just finished it so I couldn't do it earlier)

Q: Can I release the things from past projects that I want to use as a resource and use them for my entry?
A: No, not while the game jam is underway. You're free to use resources that get uploaded during the game jam, but things uploaded by yourself would be seen as trying to circumvent this rule. We'll be keeping an eye on what resources end up in which game.

Normally the answer would be no, but if you release it as soon as possible we'll allow it. We're only on the first day after all.

It's 20 and a half hour before this post so I guess it works. Please confirm me if possible though

I've messaged you about it. We're changing up the Discord authentication soon so there won't be any more issues.
