Well met, Adventurer!    

Welcome to the fourth GameDevNetwork jam, Dragon(fruit) Jam! 

Theme: Space & Sea

What is this 'GameDevNetwork' you speak of?

GameDevNetwork (GDN) is a community for anyone with an interest in game development, whether they're a AAA veteran programmer or someone that loves writing the ins and outs of game plots / mechanics.

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! 

What is a game jam and why should I bother participating?

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.

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 🌟 extra mile🌟

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