Another game jam has come to an end! Thank you for your patience as our judges played through 29 entries!! With last year's Winter Game Jam starting with a steady 12 entries, we had no idea this year we would more than double that number. I hope your used your time wisely to play through the entries because it's now your turn to vote for the Community Spotlight!

While you could guess who has earned the Judge's Spotlight through process of elimination, let's announce the winners! Apologies as we decided to give judge's spotlight to one sixth of the entries, which means five winners! Here we go, in order of release:

~♥Pokémon Fairies♥~~ by @Armin


It's Fairyland's 3000th anniversary, and what better way to celebrate than with a Fairy Feast? Fairy food, Fairy lights and tons of Fairy games -- it's going to be nothing short of an amazing time! However! Trouble lurks in the form of the Evil Fairy Imogen and her Impidimp team, who are hell-bent on ruining the Feast at all costs! With their friends in distress and the Feast preparations gone awry, it's all up to the indomitable duo of Serafina & Sylveon to set things right and save the day!

Pokémon Nightshade by @Ekat with @Foxowl, @Michael and @PurpleZaffre


In this game you play as Giselle, a Ranger for Cypress Park. There is no shortage of work to be done, but Giselle has grown somewhat bored of these tasks. So, her boss gives her a challenge. By dealing with various shenanigans related to her job, Giselle can earn Park Points. These, in turn, can be used to buy Ranger Badges. Gather all 10 to become the Ultimate Park Ranger of the Universe! Or... something. Giselle's boss wasn't exactly clear on what collecting them all would accomplish...

The story of Pokémon Bushido revolves around you, the child of the Royal Samurai. After training under Sensei Sukiro for years, the time has come for you to get a Pokemon and become an official Kenshi. However, upon attending the Kenshi Initiation Tournament, you experience an unexpected turn of events, causing your journey to take you throughout the major villages of the Aisho Region! You will challenge all the various clans and earn merit for yourself while stopping the Akui Clan in their tracks. As you travel the region, you will meet new friends, and enemies, who will shape your adventure.

Community Choice Spotlight: The Last Nurse Joy by @AnonAlpaca, @TechSkylander1518, @Monika~♡ and @Avery


The year is 198X. A team of top-class scientists (and one nurse) from across the globe are anxiously waiting for the storm to end. They're one of the few to work in Antaxius 'overwinter' - it's the last region to be discovered by man, an icy waste where the nights are a month long. Once the weather finally clears, an icebreaker ship can make it to the mainland and deliver valuable equipment. Among the cargo is the Re:Vive - a machine that promises to magically heal any Pokemon, and any ailment. Resident nurse Aida has been working here for 20 years, and out of all the miracle cures she's seen, this one could be for real. She knows it'll change the field of Pokemon care forever, and possibly the rest of the world. No more panic, no more stress, no more death, even.
But how will she spend the last week before that change happens, knowing things can't and shouldn't go back?

Congratulations to all of the spotlight winners. I loved the humor of Perfect Jam, the charm of Fairies, the appeal and polish of Nightshade, and the unique premise of Azume!

And of course, thank you so much to the judges for choosing Bushido, and thank you, everyone, for supporting Bushido. :))
