Warning: Spoilers ahead for Rogue Jam!

Rogue Jam Episode 1: Huge Potential Winner – Enter the Chronosphere

Enter the Chronosphere won the Huge Potential Award at Rogue Jam 2022, taking home $50,000 and the right of first refusal from Rogue Games. In Enter the Chronosphere, players must master a turn-based ‘Bullet Hell’ roguelike where the action only happens when they move. While this allows players to plan their next move at any moment, the challenges that await still require precision and careful thinking.

Rogue Jam Episode 2: Strikingly Beautiful Winner – I See Red

I See Red won the Eye-Poppingly Beautiful award at Rogue Jam 2022, winning a $100,000 cash prize and a Rogue Games publishing deal. In I See Red, players take on the role of a space pirate who loves nothing more than invading enemy spaceships and stealing weapons and other goods. The game is a fast-paced, frantic twin-stick shooter that also proudly wears its roguelike aspects on its sleeve.

Rogue Jam Episode 3: WTF? Winner – Zapling Bygone

Zapling Bygone has been called the Ultimate WTF? Play at Rogue Jame 2022 and take home $100,000 and a Rogue Games publishing deal for the honor. A mix of open-world, roguelike, and metroidvania styles, Zapling Bygone puts you in control of a hive spirit who must rise through the world, defeating his enemies and wearing his skulls to absorb their consciousness. These skulls give you new powers that will help you navigate a strange world.

Rogue Jam Episode 4: Overall Winner – Seadog

Of all the games participating in Rogue Jam 2022, Seadog took home the ultimate prize to become the overall winner. In the process, the developers earned $500,000 and a publishing deal with Rogue Games. So what is this game that secured victory ahead of everyone else? It’s a game about a skateboard frog who also happens to be a sailor.

Seadog takes players aboard a ship stranded in a ship graveyard and challenges them to travel the world using their skateboard and the many tricks this seaman frog can learn. However, you will not be alone in this mission as you will be accompanied by your ship’s captain – an AI stored on a flash drive.

Rogue Jam Episode 5: Audience Choice Winner – Myplaced

In the final episode, Myplaced took home the Audience Award alongside $50,000 and a right of first refusal from Rogue Games. This Zelda-like game doesn’t shy away from its inspiration and should feel right at home for those who loved the franchise’s top-down entries like The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, especially the remake! Although not much has been revealed about the game, we do know that it follows a hero who finds himself in a mysterious world.
