Get ready for an electrifying Scratch Game Jam! We're excited to announce that the theme for our upcoming Scratch Game Jam is Opposites Attract. This theme is all about exploring the dynamic interactions between opposing elements in the gaming world.
We would like to take a moment to thank PokePika for providing us with the inspiration for this theme. We're excited to see what our community comes up with using this theme as inspiration.
What is Opposites Attract?
We encourage all game developers, designers, and artists to embrace this theme and create games that showcase the magic of opposing forces coming together. Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
- A puzzle game where players must navigate two opposing forces through a maze, overcoming obstacles and working together to reach the end.
- A platformer where players control a character who can switch between two opposing elements, such as fire and ice, to solve puzzles and defeat enemies.
- A rhythm game where players must tap to the beat of two contrasting sounds to create a harmonious melody.
- An adventure game where players explore a world where opposing forces are at war, and must find a way to bring balance and harmony to the land.
To give you some inspiration, here are a few games that showcase the Opposites Attract theme:
- Fireboy and Watergirl: In this classic puzzle game, players control two opposing characters who must work together to navigate through levels and reach the end.
- Ibb and Obb: This cooperative puzzle game challenges players to work together to solve challenges and overcome obstacles, with one player controlling the "up" direction and the other controlling the "down" direction.
- Love Balls: This physics-based game requires players to draw lines to guide two opposite forces together and overcome obstacles along the way.
- Polarity: This platformer challenges players to use opposite polarities to navigate a futuristic world full of obstacles and enemies.
- Limbo: This dark and moody platformer sees players navigating a monochromatic world full of traps and obstacles, using light and dark forces to progress.
Please note that the deadline for submissions is April 14th. We can't wait to see what you come up with! Remember, the sky's the limit when it comes to interpreting the Opposites Attract theme. Let your imagination run wild and create something truly amazing.
