Congratulations to our winners!

The official theme is: The road less traveled

Welcome to our second gamejam. We are so excited to see what you all create. We've  put together a kick ass team to help organise the inaugural CFNGamejam#2. 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 2400 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 should you participate?

The number reason you should 100% take part in any game jam, especially the CFNGamejam#2 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 jam team. Any content not created during the jam, such as pre-made assets, must be divulged on the submission page.
  5. Don't start with the creation of your game before the jam officially starts.
  6. Although anyone can vote on the submissions, judges will have the final say on the official winners.
