Game Jam is where people come together and create a game from scratch. Ours is a 12 hour format, open to everyone even with no prior experiences. 3 Teams may win one of the categories: Innovation, Aesthetic, People’s Choices, where each winning member gets a small prize.
We’ve had teams come in before who didn’t know what Game Dev was and still finished a game and won a prize! So don’t be afraid to try it out. Even if you don’t finish a game, you’ll learn much more within these 12 hours than what you might do in a month. It’s efficient, bonding, and fun =)
1) 1 – 4 people each team
2) Can be worked from anywhere, joined anytime
3) Any type of game may be submitted (2D, 3D, cards, boardgames, VR, etc)
4) None of your previous work may be used in this game
5) Free assets found online are free to use, but MUST be credited and attributed properly
The event is entirely free, unless you want to pay $5 for a bunch of snacks & pizza for dinner. You can also just come and hang out with us, play other people’s games, and participate in voting!
