Hey, lazyplague of the AA discord here. As a long collaborative effort between C-R, AAO, and our discord, we’re proud to announce the details of a long-alluded to Game Jam!

The Search for the Truth Jam is a Game Jam to celebrate Ace Attorney and our appreciation of the series as a whole! It’s a show of the love of the feeling Ace Attorney gives us, pushing through lies to find a deeper truth.

Gist of the Jam:

SftT is open to both games INSPIRED by Ace Attorney (Aka, a game where the focus is to find the truth. How you interpret this is up to you, go wild!) and fangames! Fangames, while not allowed on, will be viewed as acceptable entries, and you’ll be allowed to showcase them on AAO and the discord itself.

The Jam will be a month long, July 1st to August 1st! That gives you roughly a month of planning, and a month of developing. You do not need to submit a finished product! Take your time, and just make something!

If you haven’t seen it, we do have a interest survey that I’d urge you to fill out if you haven’t! If you already did, refrain from doing so again.
Interest Survey!

Where does the jam take place?


Game Jam activities will be hosted on a separate discord server, as to allow focused and productive discussion and team-building. We will work on creating an environment where you can search for help, and also get feedback. You’ll encounter game devs of all kinds! Be sure to take advantage of it, and get the most out of this experience as you can. It’s character building, or something. At least that’s the excuse my dad gave me when he told me to shovel the driveway.

Same thing, really.

Who’s allowed to participate?

Everyone! … Unless you’ve been in some trouble on the partnered server. If you want to join the jam server, but are banned on the partnered server, please DM me first [@lazyplague#1217] and we’ll arrange something. While I’d like to give everyone a space to work, I want to make sure everyone who joins the server is well-intended.

Along with that, if you raise a ruckus on the Jam server, we will punish you. Don’t make it harder than it needs to be.

What if I don’t like discord?

Well, you can post here about progress, make threads on AAO or CR about your prospective games I suppose, even! The page will be up eventually, so you can submit there without joining the discord. But you’ll have a far easier time finding teammates if you join the discord.

And of course, you can ask questions on here, and I’ll answer any questions I can.

Hope to see you in the server!

If I happen to, for a some time, been working on my own AA inspired game (and I already have done some own graphics and programming stuff), can it be submitted for the Jam? Or are accepted only things done during the official Game Jam period?

Unfortunately, we only accept stuff worked on during the jam.

I had to clarify this on the discord, but essentially: If you do planning, conceptualizing, whatever, before the jam... go for it still! But you can't work on anything that actually functions in the game before the jam period.

I would try this but I have no other meaningful skills apart from drawing XD
I’d love to see what people will be working on though! This seems exciting!
(Also if it stars July 1 I may be able to help someone out with character art or sprites, seeing as I’ll be on holidays then).

I'd say don't worry much about skills, and more focus on finding people who can cover your weaknesses/whose weaknesses you can cover!

Also I'd like to retract a statement, I'm going to say that if you have preexisting resources made, you are free to use them. This includes: Music, artwork, etc. Just don't make anything during the planning/teambuilding period.
