Some of you may have already heard about Game Jolt's plans regarding an Ad Revenue Sharing system for developers. We're extremely excited to finally announce that the closed beta is now starting!
To kick off the beta we're going to be running a game making contest! Three winners will be picked, all of which will be immediately accepted into the closed beta of the Ad Revenue Sharing system as well as have their games featured on the front page of the site. A first place winner will also receive a free single game from Steam (no packs)!
This is a themed contest. The theme is...
Interpret it how you will. You must make a game based on the theme above.
The contest will last about a week. Entries must be submitted by 12:00 AM (Midnight) EST, June 21st. That's midnight in between Saturday and Sunday. You can find the current EST here. It must be an original game created just for this contest and you (obviously) must be the creator of this game. You can only submit one game. There are no restrictions on creation tools, libraries, or file size. The game must be playable on a Windows based OS.
No screamers allowed! We don't want to be surprised by loud screechy voices screaming. It's not fun, and you won't win that way. (example of a screamer - be sure to get to the end)
Games should be simple and quick to play. We're not looking for epic; we're looking for innovative.
The winners will be picked by Game Jolt staff. We hope to pick the winners within 3 days of the contest cut off.
We're looking forward to all the games, guys! If you have any questions, be sure to post them. We're here to help. We hope everyone has a lot of fun with this.
To Submit a Game:
You must add your game to the main site. After you have added your game, simply reply to this topic and paste the URL to your game. I'll be sure to update the topic to show your game is entered into the contest.

We had a heck of a hard time choosing the winners. Everyone did a fantastic job, and a lot of great games were created in just one short week. I know the time constraint really stretched a lot of people, but we're glad for the amount of people that went for it anyway. We hope everyone learned something from this contest and we hope to see everyone in the future ones!
