AmiGameJam 2021 is the annual game development competition for the Amiga (originally the Festive Amiga Game-Making Competition). This year the theme is Ports, where all competitors will have six months in total to port any game they like to the Amiga platform. A "port" can include the use of original source code and assets, as well as ground-up recreations. Provided it's recognisable as the game it's based on, it should be accepted.
Competitors can use any means possible to code or build the game, that includes using game creation software kits (such as Red Pill, Scorpion Engine or GRAC). This contest is open to two separate categories; Classic Amiga and the Next-Gen Amiga models (Aros, MorphOS and AmigaOS4). Each competitor will have the opportunity to win extraordinary prizes which will be announced soon!
Entries should be submitted by the 1st of February 2022 and the judging will begin after that. The winners will be announced on a very special awards show live-stream hosted by Amiga Bill, starring three celebrity judges and appearances from other special guests in the Amiga and retro community!
Introducing this year's amazing judges for the contest:
Judge #1 - The fantastic RJ Mical (creator of Amiga's Graphical User Interface)
Judge #2 - Hitch (an amazing variety streamer on Twitch who plays Amiga and retro games)
Judge #3 - Glen Planamento (host of Glen's Retro Show on YouTube and engineer of arcade components)
We are all very grateful to have them onboard!
A First Prize will be awarded to the winner of each category and, in addition, Second and Third Prizes will be awarded in the Classic category. In the case of games made specifically for the Vampire then it should be submitted be under the Next-Gen category.
This year we will have an incredible prize pool, being generously donated by our awesome sponsors and the Amiga community. More details on the competition, prizes, as well as links to tutorials on Amiga development will be coming soon, so keep checking this page!
