Pro Ten day format strikes a good balance between urgency and low stress
The single-weekend format of most jams can be daunting to the beginner, but on the other hand a short deadline is a great motivator. InsanityJam allows two full weekends for development, plus the week between them.
Pro Randomly assigned game ideas help break creative boundaries
The theme of InsanityJam is that every game is based on an individually-generated random idea. This takes focus off whether or not the idea is any good, bypassing a lot of potential hesitation. It can also help get participants out of their creative comfort zones.
