CFN Game Jam #1

Welcome to our first ever game jam! We are so excited to see what you all create. We've  put together a kick ass team to help organise the inaugural CFN game jam. In addition to this, we've secured some industry professionals to join us on the judging panel and help pick the winning entries. If you're still not sure whether to join or not, check out the prizes section below!  


We've already built an established, active community of over 2200 members on Discord. We would love for you to join us there. We cater to everyone who creates, works with or just simply loves indie games. We have a dedicated CFN game jam channel for official announcements and updates as well as general game jam discussion. 

Our Discord server: https://discord.gg/CFN

Why you should definitely participate!

The number reason you should 100% take part in any game jam, especially the CFN game jam is to gain experience building games. You'll meet and work alongside new people you can share ideas with and learn from, as well as even passing on your own knowledge. You never know, you might make a whole bunch of new friends, and continue to develop games together. Of course, that's not the only reason. As a fan of indie games, you'll be able to discuss all the games created during the jam in with our community.  

Did we mention there are also prizes? 

Rules:

  1. All games entered must work on a Windows PC with a 'normal' monitor, this means no VR.
  2. There must be no sexual content.
  3. Team sizes are a maximum of four members. 
  4. Your game has to be created by you and your jamteam. We don't mind assets. 
  5. Don't start with the creation of your CFNGamejam game before the jam has started.

Questions regarding the rules? Join the CFN Discord server; https://discord.gg/CFN, and ask any member of the CFN Game Jam Team.
