There are plenty of game jams happening on a regular basis, but how many are called Fuck This Jam?
The premise of Fuck This Jam is pretty interesting, with creators being asked to create a game within a genre they otherwise detest.
“Through utter ignorance for conventions and hate for the established rules of a genre, beautiful things will happen,” reads the description on the official site.
Fuck This Jam comes from the minds of Vlambeer's Rami Ismail (Super Crate Box) and Fernando Ramallo (Paranormical), and was conceived during a late-night conversation at this year’s Fantastic Arcade. Beers were probably involved.
As someone who helped organize a game jam earlier this year, I’ve found myself increasingly curious about them, especially as I mull over what we could do if another Molyjam happens next year. This one sounds fascinating.
Fuck This Jam kicks off on November 9, and unlike other jams, lasts more than 48 hours. It ends on November 17.
