With the following information...

[LIST OF TEAMMATES NAMES AND UNIQNAMES] You may register at the door as well. You may not enter the competition area until you do so.

Contest Rules

All rules are subject to change. All disputes resolved by the Wolverine Soft President.

LIBRARIES / APIs / FRAMEWORKS...

Libraries, APIs, Frameworks, and pre-produced code is all welcome. Just don't make the entire game before kickoff...

Production

We encourage you to do most of your work in the Duderstadt Center, though this is not strictly necessary.

Theme

In order to be eligible for the end-of-jam raffle prizes, you must create a game that pertains in some way to the theme of "Science for Kids" (Though Mathematics is fine too).

Teams

Teams must not have more than 6 people, because that would be nutty and non-efficient.

Frequently Asked Questions

"Do I have to be present the entire 40-hours?"
No. You don't even have to create all of your code and artwork on-site. Feel free to go home to sleep, shower, eat, etc.

"I'm an artist and/or musician, can I still enter?"
Yes! We are definitely looking for artists and muscians. Video games are a convergence of so many different aspects--art, science, technology, music, creativity and entertainment.

"I would like to work on a team, but I don't have a team.  What should I do?"
You'll probably be ok (find a team), but it's no guarantee. You'll need to join a team at the competition. Unlike the 48-hour game jam, they are allowed to refuse you.

"Why does this thing end at 10:00am?"
Because a 32-hour game jam ends at 2:00am, and we know you want to be up for that!
"What software do the Duderstadt Center machines have?"
PC Training Rooms
Advanced Graphics Room
