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.

-Once your game is finished, submit it by posting it in the mailing list. The subject line should be in the format "[SUBMISSION] WEEK - Game name here". Obviously, you should replace "WEEK" with the week number (top of this page).
-You can either attach your game's source code (in "tar". or "zip" format) to the email *or* upload it to an external source (please do this if your game is larger than 1 MiBs!). If you choose the latter, you must provide a SHA256 checksum, so we can verify the file has not changed. On UNIX systems, you can find the SHA256 checksum of a file easily using the "sha256sum" command.
-Note that the mailing list is not private; your messages will be displayed publicly, and others will be able to reply to it with their own comments and feedback.

* If you are submitting your game in a language other than English, please consider providing an English translation as well.
* Write a build script which makes compiling your game from source easy. Many people are using devices with different software or libraries. As a result, it is often necessary for them to compile your game from source in order to play it. Creating an easy to use build script not only helps expand your audience, but it is also good software development practice in general, and reflects well on your competency as a programmer.
* Allow players to rebind the controls. Not everyone uses a standard "QWERTY" keyboard layout. Permanently setting your game controls to common combinations like "WASD" can make life very difficult for such players.
-* Describe your game in your submission post. This will improve your chances of receiving feedback.
