Are you bored? Do you like pixel art? Are you looking for an excuse to make a game? Then this is the jam for you!
Bored Pixels Jam is a game jam where you make a themed pixel game in only one week. It was created by the end of June 2018 and was first held on July 16-23, 2018. BPJ was made because of barrels' boredom during a particular break from school and her love for pixel art/games.
It's always fun to see a bunch of bored (or not bored) people make some pixel games for everyone to enjoy! Let's do our best to learn and have fun during this jam~

Falcon Nova (also known as MrQuickGame) / Metroidvania Month has been our partner since BPJ4. MVM challenges you to create a metroidvania game in the span of a month and has a great community for feedback. If you like metroidvania games or if you're interested in making one, please be sure to check them out! The Discord server is very fun as well~
Hello to all the old jammers from the previous BPJs and to all the new people joining us this jam!
BPJ8 will be held during it's 3rd anniversary!! It's really been that long, huh?
The last BPJ was held back in January 14 to 21, 2020. It's also been awhile since I really dug my teeth into game development. I miss it a lot especially since it's also become a great creative outlet for me. There's so much I want to learn and create! I'm also excited to hear how everyone's been doing and what's going on in their gamedev journey! Seeing people trying to achieve their goals is really inspiring.
Game development can get hectic and tiring but it's also very fulfilling as well. A lot has happened but I hope 2020 and 2021 hasn't been too tough on you. I wish you get to experience some happiness in creating as well, whether it be game-related or not.
Please remember to take care of yourself and be considerate of others especially during this pandemic. Let's have a nice jam time, ok?
