Today we are announcing the third official MakeCode Arcade Game Jam! The theme for this jam is “gardens”. In other words, we’re looking for games about gardening or set in a garden-like environment. Some possible ways to interpret this theme:
- A farming simulator where you plant, nurture, and harvest crops
- An exploration game starring a bee that must travel from flower to flower and pollinate a garden
- A stealth game where you play as a rabbit swiping carrots from an unsuspecting farmer
You can interpret “gardens” however you want, but someone playing your game should be able to see how it relates to the theme without extra explanation.
This time the jam will run from Wednesday, June 10th to Wednesday, July 1st. For you procrastinators out there, we will accept games up until 11:59 PM PT on July 1st.
For full rules, submission details, and information on prizes, check out the official game jam page.
