Don't have itch.io, so no Jam for me.  :)

It's free to create an itch.io account, so the jam is open to everybody. Unless you have a particular issue with itch.io?

OTOH, I don't do Discord, so I might contribute a submission, but there's nothing where I could sign up beforehand.

You can sign up right now by clicking Join Jam on the page. That way you can get notifications when submissions open and close. The Discord is entirely optional!

I discovered I had some of the games from last jam still lying around on my hard drive, so I played Francium at the Zoo. This is the third in a series of games about a small robot community, and if this game is anything to go by, they're all worth checking out. The robots have funny personalities, and the puzzles solutions tie well into who they are. There are some annoying bugs in the save game function, but the game is still playable if you keep separate save slots...the barriers you have cleared may come back after reloading. Still, the game is short enough to play in one go. Recommended.

I played another one from the 2020 jam: One Last Good Time. Very sad story about dementia. It's well done, really well done, but it's hardly a feel-good game. I like the attention to detail, like
Spoiler: ShowHide
how the pictures on the walls gradually lose their faces, or how the geography stops making sense.
I guess you know yourself if this is your type of game or not.
