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!
Search the airwaves for your friends, and chat about life’s greatest mysteries. You will communicate using musical notes and tune in to other HAM users on other frequencies. A MIDI-keyboard is used as the main controller.

Use two controllers (and two players) to play this game. Secret Underwater Base is a game which takes place at the bottom of the seafloor. Use sonar to find your way through the shark-infested waters — but beware, the sharks might have some FRIGGIN’ LASERBEAMS on their heads!
Team: Chrit Hameleers, Dwight Peters, Kylian Kuijer, Merle Delen, Midas Schonewille, Bram Jonkers
You finally get to see your favorite band live, you are so close to the stage that you can almost touch them, and then, the singer jumps to surf the waves formed by the hands of his biggest fans, yes that’s you! It is your duty… No! it is your DESTINY to carry him as far as possible without dropping him to the ground, for the glory of ROCK!
