The theme for SA Game Jam 2016 is:EXPRESSION! A jam about giving the player tools to express themselves. Building things the way one wants, solving puzzles in imaginative ways, choosing who to talk to, who to befriend, who to betray, customizing your avatar or your environment, the freedom to explore and to find unique experiences. So long as the player has the ability to express themselves in the game, it's good for this jam. The more interesting the avenues for expression the better.A quick way to know if your game is fitting the theme: The more divergent each player’s experience is from another the better.
