With the old way of doing things, you would have to turn off latist points because their just isnt enough time in 1 hour (for most ppl) to make a game :[

(on the other hand if u can ez make a game in an hour then Im game jelly of you. whats ur secret sauce!!!)

But now, theres 4! :D so thats maybe enough to make a little gamelette, gameling, jueguito, gamechen...
It could be......... tic80......... it could be.....umm... html5.......
it could even be a text based html game......
it shouldnt be an exe tho..... just dont......

(Its also perfectly legal to make a game on the TIA format because you just submit the rom ( Although that might take more than 4 hours but hey xD its possible... )) i wonder what other formats are like that?

a tic-80 4hb would be pretty neat honestly
definitely a hilariously short amount of time to make a game with, but it's probably the lowest amount of time where you could get *something* out that resembled a "complete" game

Text-based HTML? Hmmm.... I'll have to brush up on that Codecademy course that I started specifically for that one HTML5 major I never entered...

If there is a library of generic place holder assets we can come up with I think a 4hb game jam is possible even for complete N00Bz! I would be willing to do a crash course on constuct2/3 for people who want to make games but are on the more visual arts perspective.

i think the minimum entry count should be reduced for game 4hbs

2 hours is enough if game engines are allowed
