Wide-Dot Pixel Game Jam 2017 - A new retro inspired Jam starts this Saturday!


Throughout the years we've featured as many of the retro and indie game jams as possible, from the Speccy Jam to the very latest CGA inspiration, with each of these giving people around the world the opportunity to create any game they wish, as long as it fits the specific system criteria set by the competition creators. Thus fast forward to today, and it is time to announce the Wide-Dot Pixel Game Jam 2017; a Game Jam which starts this Saturday that is sure to excite both the game maker and anyone who loves the Amstrad, C64, or even the Atari 2600!


According to AdigunPolack, a host to the competition. This game jam inspires, honours, and celebrates the overall creativity/originality of amazing-quality new games being made in their complete entirety in a 2x1 pixel-ratio format... only better!! The competition looks to be a huge nod to the classic games of the 80's and a rarely-used pixel ratio such as on the Amstrad CPC, Atari 8-bit, C64 or even the Atari 2600. (Link)


Now before you rush off to start making the latest retro inspired games you do need to read the competition entry rules, but the ones that really do stand out are the themes as you can only select one of three choices such as Medieval Fantasy meets Prehistoric World, The Wild West vs. Feudal Japan or Your Spirit alone IS an Elemental Weapon. - And that's most of the short stuff out of the way so make sure to get game creating, as I'd love to see all of your entries as I'm sure they will be AWESOME!
