Today we are announcing the second official MakeCode Arcade Game Jam!
Our theme this time around is “one room”. In other words, games must take place entirely in one location and use no more than one tilemap. A room can be any enclosed space, so feel free to get creative! Some possible ideas might include:
- A game where the player must solve puzzles to escape a locked room
- A mystery where the player interrogates suspects at the scene of a crime
- A restaurant simulator where you weave through tables to serve hungry guests
- A woodpecker defending the hollowed-out inside of a tree from wood-boring beetles
Check out the itch.io page for the full details and rules. The jam will start on Monday, March 16th and end on Monday, March 23rd.
Remember, you need to register for the game jam and submit your entries on itch.io to participate!
This time around, we will not be combining the entries into a single game. Instead, we’ll have a round-up post on the MakeCode blog that highlights some of our favorite submissions. Feel free to post about your games and share ideas in this forum as well! We are especially interested in hearing about any new blocks/APIs that would make the Arcade experience better.
