Or I can just link to the game in README of my fork?


The instructions say:

All entries must be web-based i.e. playable in a browser. HTML5, WebGL, Unity, Torque 3D, Node JS, Flash is all possible - just be sure the source is made available on your fork.

So, definitely open-source!


But does it need to be published under an open source license? You could make the source code of your game available, but still copyrighted. Is that allowed?


"Open-source" simply means that the source code is publicly available. Use whatever license you like.


As per #6, there is no restriction on licensing.

Ah the others have said, yeah, the source code for your your game should be available for viewing in your forked repository. You can use whatever license you like.
