Flowjam 2020 - Summer Jam Announcement

This is the official announcement of Flowjam 2020: Summer Jam!


What’s Flowjam?
Flowjam is a contest where everyone gets a limited time (two weeks) to create a complete game from start to finish, based around a single theme.

The Flowjam 2020 Summer Jam will begin on July 7th, 2020, and submissions will close on July 21st, 2020.

Come join the Flowjam Discord Channel or the Flowjam 2020 Forum thread to discuss ideas, encourage each other, ask questions, or whatever else.

What’s the theme?
The theme will be announced at 11:30 pm EST on July 06, 2020, thirty minutes before the Flowjam 2020 Summer Jam kicks off.

What can I win?
The winning game developer will win their choice of either a PS4, XBox One, or Nintendo switch game console.

Note: Nintendo Switch (and Switch Lite) consoles are currently out of stock at most suppliers. This means that there may be an additional delay to ship this console.

The winning game will also be featured on the Flowlab home page.

Why should I participate?
Making games is fun! Also, this is a chance to challenge yourself to try new ideas, improve your skills, and possibly win a new console.

Who can enter?
Anyone, from anywhere. Feel free to collaborate and help each other, but only one prize will be awarded. Entrants outside the U.S. will be responsible for any Customs or other fees incurred.

The Rules
Your game can include any art or music you have legal permission to use, but anything not created by you during the jam should be listed in the game’s description.
Don’t create your game until the contest starts - on July 07, 2020 - the game creation time is listed under each game.
Submissions will be closed on July 21, 2020 at midnight EST
Although all entrants can vote on the game submissions, Grazer will have the final say on the official winner.
Only games created using Flowlab can be submitted
No purchase necessary - free accounts are welcome and encouraged to submit games!

hey grazer I have a question is there a minimum age limit to participate?

No minimum age, @glithctyrus


I hope I win this time! A Tale of Light and Darkness was okay, but basic. Now, I have gotten two times better than I was at flowlab and I hope this time I can proove it!

@grazer … The training has begun :smirk:

But also may the best flowjamer win.

:anguished: :dissapointed_relieved:

@KA11561 no its not actually to win you just have to follow the rules and hope grazer and everyone else like it and have to make it in the time frame given(two weeks)(ps your at mercy unity game jams give you 48 hours or two days)

I will enter just for fun

@glithctyrus - you just make a game (don’t click the create game button until after the jam starts). The Flowjam page will get a “submit game” button after it starts.
