Without the support we get from you all this would not have been possible! Thank you all!

Raw score sheet:


It’s a shame that Kobold village couldn’t get more recognition, but I suppose it was all of the bugs in the Gain-Jam version that held it back. Comparitively, the updated version is significantly more polished and functional.

It was one of my personal favorites, and really hope development continues on it.

next year i’m gonna have to knock it out of the park!
i’m honored to have won best art though!

Maybe next time i won’t be having a bad brain moment through half of it


So are the game topics in the Gain Jam going to be locked or will they stay open?

Also congrats to all of the winners, very well done to everyone.

We lock them down about a week after

Well-deserved awards and recognition all around. This was my personal favorite theme (my favorite WG games in general tend to have hands-off pseudo-control). The jam entries were so fun and impressive.

Just felt like echoing the love for the results of this game jam!


Forgot to say it here but congrats to the winners, all truly fantastic creators! So glad Joblin simulator got an honorable mention, love you guys.
