The first PICO-8 Jam has ended, and peer ratings have been tabulated and verified. Thanks so much to all participants for making the jam a wonderful event and for producing an excellent collection of rain-themed cartridges. It was a close one, with only a difference of 0.04 PICO-8 stars (out of 8) between the two highest-rated entries. With an average of 6.92 stars, the winner is.. drumroll..

Congratulations JTE, and you'll be receiving a small prize in the mail from PICO-8 HQ -- a commemorative plastic coaster depicting your cartridge, along with a PICO-8 canvas bag.
With an extremely close 6.88 stars, is Benjamin Soulé's Rainmaker:
Stay tuned for the next Jam, which will be in the first quarter of 2016. And if you're not burnt out from jamming or missed this one, join me for Ludum Dare this coming weekend!
You can view all of the P8JAM1 entries here, or directly play the carts mentioned in this post below.
Wow, what! I totally expected Rainmaker had the marginal advantage over Frog Home! It's so bright and adorable and went through a lot more development...
Thank you all for such a stormy competition! Being one of the forerunners in the thick of such a downpour of creativity was quite a thrill!
