ScoreSpace x Alakajam! / June 19-22 4

Wan 2 months ago on ScoreSpace x Alakajam!

The game jam multiverse is collapsing! In June, Alakajam! and ScoreSpace will join forces to offer you a special event.

For 72 hours, from Friday to Monday, all entrants are invited to make a game. Teams or solo devs, beginners and professionals are all welcome to participate. On top of that, in a unique twist to game jams, ScoreSpace brings in the idea of making streamers compete on your jam games.

Overview

Detailed schedule

Dates Phase Description
June 5, 7pm UTC Theme submission and voting Submit theme ideas for the jam and vote for all other ideas. Submissions will be eliminated as the week progresses, until only the best remain…
June 12, 7pm UTC Theme shortlist The best 10 themes are revealed. Rank them by order of preference in this final phase of theme voting.
June 19, 6pm UTC Countdown stream An official stream by @DanaePlays is held on Twitch to launch the event!
June 19, 7pm UTC THE JAM!!! Start making a game solo or as a team, and simply submit it before the deadline!
June 22, 7pm UTC End of jam The game development competition ends here, exactly 72 hours after the start time. Submissions will remain open for an additional hour after the deadline. An alternate unranked jam will be held simultaneously for those who want to join and exchange feedback, but not compete.
June 27, 7pm UTC Jam results After five days during which all entrants play, rate and comment on other peoples games… The results are released and the 3 awards will be given! "Developer's Solo Choice & Developer's Team Choice" (highest Overall rated entries), plus a special "Streamer's Choice" (picked by the event streamers) will be kept for the next phase.
June 28, 7pm UTC High score results For 24 hours, the event streamers will compete and livestream while they play the 3 awarded games. Their goal will be to climb the leaderboard and hopefully win the competition. During that time, community members can of course play and submit scores too!

Please clarify the one thing for me: is it required to make high scores in my game or not? As i see it: you anyway got scored in general jam, not depending if it supports high scores (like always) and additionaly you can be scores on competition phase only if you support high scores. Am i right?

@DictorDro Exactly :) Here's the relevant bit in the docs:

For your game to qualify for the streamer competition, you are encouraged to make it support high scores.

So high scores are not mandatory to enter or even win the jam, only for getting a shot at entering the competition phase.
