+1 for itch.io. Here's a link: https://itch.io/docs/creators/game-jams

I'd also be wiling to chip in a bit for the prize pool!

I do like itch, but I met gamejolt recently, really nice people, and they have offered to help spread the word about the jam, Gamejolt also has a bigger community as far as I know.

@colbert187 Yea. GameJolt jam may be the way to go. @Letmethink has made an extension that allows for trophies and submitting scores. GameJolt usually uses a hash tag format for allowing projects to be under the one categeory.

Yay! I was wondering about this. I look forward to the Stencyl Jam every year. It's a really nice thing to connect with the community and actually make a finished product.

I actually like the idea of doing it over one week instead of one month. My two previous entries I did in ~1 week, anyway.

The theme won't be announced until the first day of the jam, so nobody gets an unfair advantage.

In my opinion, a week is really too short, especially for students like me. I'm not sure I'll be able too make something…
