Welcome to Game Dev Network / CFN mouth-wateringly enticing Cherry Jam!

Theme -- Dungeons!

Help! What is a game jam?

Game jams are all about creativity, teamwork and experimentation! Don't be afraid to fail, as long as you enjoy yourself and create something, you're a winner and you have a new tale to tell.  Maybe you'll stumble upon the next viral hit, maybe you'll create a buggy mess that's still entertaining as hell to play, either of those outcomes results in you creating something.

Why participate? 

As a huge game jam advocate and having run 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. Everyone from AAA studios to students regularly participate in jams for a reason, be part of that group going the ๐ŸŒŸ extra mile๐ŸŒŸ

Oh, and winners will receive some cool prizes, see below

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 teammate for a project, need help squashing that pesky bug or just want some feedback on your latest pixel art masterpiece, we're here!

CFN or Computerfiguur's network is a multi-person indie game review network. We work with very small indie developers to help provide their games with critique and exposure. We work in reviews primarily, but also do previews on occasion and will provide pointers and critique from a game journalists perspective. CFN consists of the Computerfiguur.com website, the CFN youtube channel, where we post daily content of all sorts of indie game material, and "The Indie Spot" podcast, where ChocolatierGames and Warsong take a look at promising indie games every other week. We like to shed light on small-scale projects to help indie devs get exposure while building up our own scale and exposure. We have a passion for what we do and work our best to ensure maximum quality in everything we create. (Link to CFN's Discord channel: http://discord.gg/cfn )
