This jam is now over. It ran from 2017-02-03 00:00:00 to 2017-02-12 00:00:00.
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.
Discord is a instant-messaging app made for games. It is also a very helpful app for jams because you can easily communicate with your fellow jammers. I have set up a server for the jam, which you can join by clicking this link: https://discord.gg/72PBQjZ, and I want to encourage you to do so.
Tutorials are always helpful, whether you are a beginner or not. I have already found one tutorial, but if you know more, do not hestitate to tell me about them.
