Submission open from 2017-02-03 00:00:00 to 2017-02-12 00:00:00
Starts in

Welcome to the effects jam! Do not be scared if you are not much of an artist or just started. You will not be the only one and you will learn a lot through trial and error.


The goal of this jam is to create one or more effects usable in a video game. This can be a cool shader, a nice-looking particle system, an awesome lightning system or an amazing animation. You do not have to include the effect in an actual game, just make sure you submit something where you showcase the effect.


  • You can start early because the point of the jam is to learn and it is not a contest. However, the most activity will be during the actual jam.

  • You are allowed work together, just make sure to attribute everyone you worked together with.


  • Deadlines are pretty hard, but do not rush to finish your project. When you miss the deadline, instead of worrying, just message me and we will figure something out.
  • Share your progress! It's really fun and the feedback will help you. You can share your project with your fellow jammers on Discord or with Twitter using the hashtag #effectsjam
