  • Submission: Online on itch.io/jam/jam-for-change

Come make stuff  together in a friendly space full of first-time jammers, experienced devs, and people who've never done any game development whatsoever.

We will offer support for everyone and even some of our own tools and entire games you can use to simply mod and theme yourself. Even if you have no experience whatsoever you WILL be able to make a game or two.

We will spend 8 hours each day together having fun and making things! It should be inspired by the theme, but can be as weird and wonderful as you like: a digital version of Pass the Parcel, or a twister inspired boardgame! Don't worry if it all goes wrong! At the end of it, we shall have something fun.

At the end of the next week the creations will all be bundled together and sold to raise funds for women's aid.
