What is a Game Jam?
A Game Jam is a competition where you make the best game in a limited time (12 hours in our case). At the end of the day, we play & vote for the top 3 teams who will win prizes, and all games are showcased here!
You don’t need to know how to make a game at all to join. Fact: One of the beginners team won last game jam, who had ZERO experience when they sat down. You can learn on spot and make a fantastic game!
The theme of the game will be announced right before it starts, and you will take 5 minutes to come up with ideas. Then, you’ll share them with others and decide which one you want – and join their team. If you don’t like anyone’s ideas, you can work solo, which is no problem at all. Some experienced people will be around to help out. Try to have a vary of jobs in your team (programmer, artist, musician, etc).
