It has finally begun! The Flaming Hot Jam's theme is.... WHAT WAS LOST.
The game should be themed around loss in one shape or another. The phrasing was chosen to allow you to tackle it in a few different ways, for example using the act of losing as a mechanic, or focusing on the thing itself that was lost. (and also to avoid receiving a bunch of meme games about a certain webcomic)
Hopefully this inspires you as you come up with your game ideas!
Outside from that, here's a reminder of the other rules of the competition. There will be none added beyond this.
- All entries to the Flaming Hot Jam must be entirely free (that means no in-game purchases)
- Entries may not include copyrighted content. Copyrighted music, assets and characters are a no-go.
- Games must at least be playable on Windows or in a web browser. You may also target other platforms on top.
- Be nice. Entries may be disqualified for discriminatory or mean-spirited content.
I hope you have fun over the next two months and create something you can feel proud of!
