"A work of art is an adventure of the mind."
Quote from Eugène Ionesco
Diversifiers are voluntary constraint that game jammers can follow along with the theme of the game jam. This isn’t a competition so no points will be given or taken away for using or not using the diversifiers. Game jammers may add any number of diversifiers to their games as an added challenge to help them brainstorm ideas, or to try something new.
So all can play
Play Not War
Create a game that is peaceful or nonviolent that excludes themes and game mechanics relating to war, weapons, shooting, battle, or violence.
Sync your game to musical beats.
Location, location, location
Have your game utilize a GPS or network location to affect gameplay.
Include voice or sound based controls in your game.
Authentic Retro Flavor
Pick a system from the 1980's or earlier (NES, C64, Atari 2600, DOS w/EGA, etc) and only use a resolution, color palette, and music/sound style (e.g. FM synth, number of voices) and controls (e.g. 4 way digital joystick and one or two buttons) that would have worked on the original system." (memory, storage space, etc doesn't matter)
