THE THEME IS PALADINS, NOBLE, RESPECTED KNIGHTS OF OLD!

What?

This is an online Game Jam hosted by South Dakota State Univerity's Game Creation Organization. The theme will be revealed when the Game Jam starts! (See below under THEME at the bottom for more details.)

Who?

Anyone can enter!

When?

May 20-22 from 7PM to 7PM. You will have an extra half hour on Sunday for submission purposes, so you will have the full 48 hours to work on the game.

Where?

Wherever you are! This is completely online, so find a cool location to work and make something awesome!

Why?

Why not? Actually it was because this was the best weekend for our group to do an annual summer Game Jam, but no one else was hosting a Game Jam, so we decided to host our own.


Genre?

Quite a few genres will fit the theme. The theme will require some level of modesty (that's the only hint we are giving), but unless you are trying to make a game who's only purpose is to be immodest (and the objectives associated), you really can't go wrong. If you are unsure, feel free to email us.

Platform?

We have a couple of tech savvy people who can get games to run on all sorts of devices. Build for whatever platform you like: PC, mobile, web, console, ect. If we don't have the hardware to run your game on its intended platform, we'll try to emulate it.

Teams?

If you are the kind of person who prefers to be the one man band, GO FOR IT! If you have a giant company that wants to participate as one giant team, GO FOR IT! Do what you can/want to do! We have no restrictions.

What if I am not very experienced?

That's the point! You learn and grow a lot from these competitions! Of course if you are experienced, you probably have other motivations which are fine too.

What if I don't finish my game?

Submit what works if you can. Otherwise email us screenshots and/or videos.

Fan games?

Fan games can be great practice if you are low on creativity or resources, but can be problematic if widely distributed. If you are concerned about your game being available to the public, email a cloud link to us and we won't distribute it. We won't make a video or stream on it either unless you provide permission in the email.


THEME

The theme is top secret! We won't reveal it publicly until the Game Jam starts on May 20th at 7 P.M. Central Time.

We will announce the theme on Twitter @SDSU_GCO

If you would like an email announcing the theme when the Game Jam starts instead, email us!

Judging will be based on the following criteria (note: subject to change):

  • Theme - Does the game match the theme?
  • Creativity - Does the game introduce a creative mechanic, story, or art style?
  • Effort - Is the game technically impressive? Was a lot of work put into it? Does it go the extra mile?
  • Entertainment - Was the game entertaining to play?
  • Bonus Points - For the little things that matter! :D

Email

For all questions, concerns, theme requests, and private submissions, you can email us at: gco.sdsu@gmail.com

You can also follow us on Twitter @SDSU_GCO, or check us out on YouTube or Twitch
