4. The game must be in English.

5. The game may not contain any copyrighted material that you don't have the rights to use.

6. Entrants are encouraged to share their source code or compiled versions of their game with other entrants during the entire jam. Compiled versions of the game should not be published publicly prior to the start of voting. (In the spirit of promoting TADS, new tools and libraries will be judged in a separate category.)

11. Judges will be asked to rate the overall enjoyment they got out of the game. This determines the final ranking.

12. Entrants can be judges, but cannot vote on their own game.

13. An entrant can choose to submit a game to the jam as non-competitive, meaning it won’t be possible to vote on that entry.

14. The jam organizers may enter their own games in the jam, but may not rate their own game in the competition.
