Let's make a game!

The Coding Blocks Game Jam is a light-hearted jam with an emphasis on learning something new and having fun.

It doesn't matter if you are a full-time game dev or if this will be your first attempt, there is always something new to learn.

What are the judging criteria?

  • Creativity
  • Fun
  • User Experience
  • Theme

What is the theme?

The theme this year is "Everything is backwards", huge thanks to Dave Follett for that suggestion. It made it through both a round of voting and random selection!


Who can enter?

You can enter! Solo developers and teams are welcome, the point is to learn and have fun. Here are instructions for adding collaborators to the project.


What assets can I use?

You can use whatever assets you have the rights too, but programmer art is highly encouraged because it's awesome.

Any language / framework requirements?

We encourage browser-based technologies for security reasons, but this jam is about you learning something new and having fun, so do what makes sense for you. Just know that most people won't play your game unless it runs in a browser.

Here is a list (thanks Wil!) of engines that can export for a browser:

Most major languages also have ways to compile down to web assembly, here are a couple suggestions if you want to try going that route but beware - you can end up spending a lot of time going down this rabbit hole instead of working on your game:

Slack:

We have a #game-dev-wannabe channel in slack, go join!

Code of Conduct:

Don't be a creepy jerk, read the code of conduct
