This jam will run between:
21st November 2022, 11am GMT / 6am ET and 5th December 2022 11am GMT / 6am ET
Every gamer knows why we play games. But why do we come back to the same games time and time again?
As game creators, how can YOU ensure that gamers come back to your games over and over again? This is the meaning of Unfinished Business. Games that make you want to keep on playing, keep on achieving and keep on having a great time - by themselves or with other players.
Just remember the most important point of all!
Here's some other thoughts to get you going.
That’s the boring part out of the way - now the fun starts! Get creating, be daring, let your imagination go wild, and give a wonderful, creative interpretation of Unfinished Business that even we hadn’t thought of.
The Mega Game Jam is Crayta’s biggest jam, and offers the largest prize pool - a huge $200,000 spread across 30 prizes. The prizes are structured in the following way:
Want to learn more about the awards? Then read on…
Awarded for excellence across the four main areas of Gameplay, Visuals, Technical and Crayta Experience.
A game with astonishing, eye catching visuals and an expressive environment that enhances your gameplay and leaves us in awe. Your use of colour and composition, as well as your use of voxels, meshes, lighting and special effects, will be vital to earn this prize.
Bring people together and let everyone take part. This game will really encourage socialising and expression amongst your players. A shared goal with well crafted co-operation - or maybe even a little friendly competition - will help land this award.
We all love our mouse-and-keyboard and our dual-stick controllers - but how about a simpler way to play a game? This award is for games that reduce the number of buttons and controls needed to have fun.
Everyone knows that sims and tycoons are great for making you come back tomorrow. But how can you make an Action game or an Adventure game that has the same degree of urgent compulsion?
Everyone knows that sims and tycoons are great for making you come back tomorrow. Now see if you can add mechanics to a Puzzle game or Abstract game that are just as sticky!
This award is for the best UX (user experience.) This means helping the player learn how to play the game in a fun and accessible way. This includes making sure that the player knows what their short-term and long term objectives are - as well as all the controls they need to use. Great use of tutorials, guides and prompts throughout the game will contribute to this award - as will the use of a well designed UI.
Make the player feel truly special! This award goes to the game that makes the best use of super-satisfying moments of triumph. Sound, visual effects, animation, camera work - use everything at your disposal to make the player feel like a superstar - even for just a few seconds!
What happens in the game when you are away? This award will go to the game that gives the best sense that the world is still working whilst you are not playing. This is not limited to just timers - what happens to the characters, environments or stories in that world?
Judges Choice Special Award - An additional award for this Mega Game Jam, the Judges Choice Award is a prize of $4,000 which will be awarded to the game which features ambitious or experimental concepts and moves forward the field of game design within Crayta.
We'll also have up to 16 $1,000 runner-up prizes for those honourable mentions that we just have to tell people about.
It'll be possible to win more than one of these categories but we'd love to see as much variety as possible – SO GET CREATING!

Can I use packages from other creators in my entries?

Can I use any other game engine?
- No. All entries must be built in Crayta.
