    Actually it is mentioned in the detailed rules: Submission may include sourced (non-original) assets, but the sourced assets must be noted.



    I think the reasoning is only half true. The rules state: [...] nor may the Submission include third-party copyrighted material or artwork, without the copyright holder’s permission. By entering, you warrant that your Submission does not infringe any third party’s rights, and that you have obtained any necessary permissions from all relevant third parties to submit the Submission. IMO this doesn't exclude assets that are not publicly available to all. You just have to make sure that you have all the needed rights to publically release your game.



    Again I'm not sure if this is correct, looking at the rules: Submission must not include assets created prior to the Contest period (outside of noted sourced assets). I think this rule is meant to take away the advantage off a team that has created many games and assets before which they could use now in the game jam. But where to draw the line? Is a plugin/asset-pack/etc. I've created and published before the game jam a sourced asset and therefore excluded from this rule? Or are 'sourced assets' only 3rd party assets? If so, you would e.g. not be allowed to use your stuff from the marketplace but only the assets created by others. So it all depends on the meaning of 'sourced assets'.



    Since the overall look is one of three judging criteria, it apparently matters what the game looks like. So high fidelity models can give you an advantage. But they are no guarantee, because the overall looks matters, not the look of one model. So IMHO was the overall look of the last winning games consistent and good, which therefore probably meet the criterion.
    To avoid this problem I would recommend that in the submission thread the Rule of " note the assets that were not made by you" is used so There is a fair competition. Dont you guys agree?

      I'll probably not have enough time this weekend but depending on theme and inspiration I'll probably try to do LudumDare and the Jam together.

          I can't promise I will be as active this weekend as I would like to necessarily but I could always use assistance in the sound department. I'm not on here as often as I am on Reddit though. I will check back here when possible but my username over there is mikehaysjr

            Definitely agree with that.

              So the theme is "Spring into the future". First thing I do after the announcement is ask our team's captain, @unrealbot, what we should do and he commands we make a game about assassinating trees under water.



              So... "spring", shooting trees under water. The RNG gods are in my favor :P

                TBH I'm not sure that the amount of 3rd party assets is considered in judging the games, like I'm not sure if the team size is a judging criterion. I think these rules are not for fairness but to avoid copyright infringement.

                  But with more assets sometimes you can create better environments .

                    I've seen some games win that didn't use any 3rd party asses, basically just starter content. So I don't think its a big aspect.. I think its originality and how fun the game is.
