We’ve already built an established, active community of over 2500 members on Discord. We would love for you to join us there. We cater to everyone who creates, works with or just simply loves indie games. We have a dedicated CFN game jam channel for official announcements and updates as well as general game jam discussion.

Rules
All games entered must work on a Windows PC with a ‘normal’ monitor, this means no VR exclusive.
There must be no sexual content.
Team sizes are a maximum of four members.
Your game has to be created by you and your jam team. Any content not created during the jam, such as pre-made assets, must be divulged on the submission page.
Don’t start with the creation of your game before the jam officially starts.
Although anyone can vote on the submissions, judges will have the final say on the official winners.
