Single Choice Jam ~ Only give players one choice ;)

The Jam where you only give one choice to the player!

The Single Choice Jam is a short unranked jam where there is only one restriction:
you can give players only one choice or action in the game!

The rest… is up to you!

Constraints and Rules:

  • There can only be One Choice in the entire entry: only one page (or room) can have more than one option/action the player can pick/use.
    • With the exception of the multi-option passage, there can only be one selectable option on the page.
      • You can have as many non-selectable options as you wish on passages.
      • Non-story passages, such as Title/Landing Pages and Menus (i.e. Settings/Codex/Credits/etc…) do not count under this rule.
  • The Jam is open to any program/medium, as long as the piece can be considered Interactive Fiction (i.e. the game is interactive, and its focus is on the text).
  • The Jam is open to any language.
  • The Jam is open to NSFW content, as long as you indicate it in your submission.
  • You must credit any asset used in your entry, or it will be removed (ex: code, images, sound, etc…)
  • Entries using AI or LLM, or having spam or hateful content will be removed.
  • You can submit up to 3 entries!

As a rule of thumb, you should aim for a 15-30min maximum gameplay in your entry, but you can make it as long or short as you would like.
