Welcome to Game Dev Network's first game jam!

Server Link:

Theme -- Text Based!

Who are we?
Game Dev Network is a community of game programmers, artists, sound engineers, any role remotely related to games really.
Whether you're looking for an extra team mate for a project or just want some feedback on your latest pixel art masterpiece, we're here!

Why participate?
As a huge game jam advocate and having ran multiple jams in the past, I am never not asked "why".
Not only does participating in a game jam give you the chance to flex your creativity and build on your portfolio, you get the opportunity to talk to other jammers, get feedback and make connections.

Oh, and winners will recieve a winner title on the server as well as an awesome high quality Game Dev Network sticker!*

The process
1) Join our Discord server:
2) Say hi! Or don't and lurk in #gamejam
3) ???
4) Games!

You'll have from Saturday April 1st 00:00 GMT until Sunday April 9th 23:00 to create and submit your game.
You hold all rights to anything created during the jam. You may upload the source of your game, however this is completely optional and participants are under no obligation to do so.
