LibreJam

Hello, and welcome to the home of the bimonthly game jam for libre games, LibreJam!

At the beginning of every other month, the jam begins, with a unique theme being released to add extra challenge. Participants have two weeks to develop and publish their game, working solo or in teams. Once time is up, all games are published to the site for others to view, and ratings are opened for seven days, before a winner is announced.

Submissions

Once your game is finished, submit it by using our IRC bot.

Please include a Readme file in your repository and give a brief description of your game and instructions on how to run it. Also create a branch with the version of the game, which you want to submit.

Note that the submissions will be publicy viewable in the sumissions list[2], and others will be able to reply to it with their own comments and feedback via our IRC Bot.

Bot command for submissions:

!submit <url> [-b branch] <name>

Ratings

Anyone can submit ratings for games, not just jam participants. To submit a rating, use our IRC Bot.

Ratings are accepted until the end time given at the top of the page, after which ratings for all games are tallied and winners are announced.
