GGJ18 Diversifiers

Diversifiers are a great way to add a little more fun or challenge to your jam weekend. Sometimes they can be very helpful to limit your scope or refine your ideas. They are totally optional constraints you can choose to add to your GGJ18 game alongside the focus of the theme. It can help your game stand out from the crowd, and you can choose up to 4 when you submit!

For those jammers looking to level up check out the GGJ18 Diversifiers!
