Well met, Adventurer!    

Welcome to the Seventh GameDevNetwork jam, Gooseberry Jam! 

Theme: YOU Are The Villain

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

We're totally voluntary run and work super hard to put awesome gamedev events on / bring attention to various other jams outside of our own.  I have covered the costs of stickers/shipping thus far personally, and I am happy to do so.  If you like what we do and want to support us, consider our Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/gamedevnetwork 
We have staff polls on any use of Patreon funds and take nothing for ourselves, it goes directly into hosting awesome events like this. (Pledges also get a cool name colour on the GDN Discord Server!) 

... did I also mention we have some heckin' cool stickers to give away to random participants/judge picks?
