Game Off 2023 has ended - thank you to everyone who took part! View the results or take a peek at some of the games created in the video below:
Game Off is GitHub's annual game jam challenging individuals and teams to build a game during the month of November–using whatever programming languages, game engines, or libraries you like. The use AI tools to help generate code, assets, or anything in between is also welcome.
The theme for this year's jam was SCALE participants rose to the occasion creating over 600 games.
As always, you’re welcome to interpret the theme however you like. If you need some ideas to kickstart your creativity, here are a few game ideas that sprint to mind for me:
Once submitted, your entries will be evaluated by fellow participants, and you'll also have the chance to play and cast your votes on their games too.
Voting will open shortly after the jam ends and is open to everyone who’s submitted a game. Entries will be rated on the following categories: Overall, Gameplay, Graphics, Audio, Innovation and Theme Interpretation. Voting will end on January 8th, 2024 at 13:37 PT.
As always, we'll highlight some of our favorites games on the GitHub Blog, and the world will get to enjoy (and maybe even contribute to or learn from) your creations.
With so many free, open source game engines and tutorials available online, there’s never been an easier (or more exciting!) time to try out game development.
