It’s been 4 years since the last┬ápick ‘n’ mix miniLD, so I think it’s about time for a sequel!

This time I have prepared a list of goals, challenges, and themes. Pick whatever you like from the lists and make a game!


Make a game that makes the player;

  • Laugh
  • Scared
  • Go ‘Awwwww ^__^’
  • Go ‘Awwwww :(‘
  • Dizzy
  • Hungry
  • Want to rage quit



Push yourself this jam;

  • Use only 4 colours (no more, no less!)
  • Make a game that uses all/most keyboard keys
  • Make a game that uses just 2 keyboard keys
  • Make a game with only one mechanic
  • Make a game with as many mechanics as you can
  • Swap 2D/3D – If you normally work with 3D, try 2D (or vice versa)
  • Swap solo/team – If you normally work solo, try collaborating (or vice versa)



Want some themes? pick;

  • Back to the Future (welcome to 2015!)
  • Film Noir
  • B-movie: the game
  • Dancing
  • Chill
  • Fishing

Pick whatever you want from the list (one thing, lots of things, nothing –┬áJust do what you want to do really)


  • I don’t care. Do what you want. So long as you’re trying to be a decent person you and me are cool.


  • Weekend of 31st January/1st February
  • but you can start whenever you want
  • Submissions will close on Monday 9th, aim for Sunday to be safe!

If you have any questions, ask below – but the answer is probably going to be “Yes you can do that if you want” :)
