Hear All About It
Game JamPacked is a friendly game jam that wants to pit teams of game dev heroes against each other with all their tricks on the table. It'll be an event not to miss, jampacked with a hot mess of crazy pro game making.
The goal of the game jam is to bring a flicker of competition to a fun hackathon with a musical twist. We want the focus of this game jam to be on music and coding. Art, writing, and design are all beautiful elements that add so much glory to any product, but where's all the love for our composers and hackers? #GameJamPacked aims to bring light to all the genius musical makers and coding wizards.
JamPacked runs from July 1st to July 15th. All games are due at 11:59PM of your own timezone. We will be allowing a 12 hour discrepancy for time zone complications.
Here are some rules you should keep in mind.
Want to Join?
Great! Luckily, it's not that hard. Anyone of all ages, gamers and non-gamers alike, can join in on the fun. Sign up on itch.io and upload your entry, making sure you submit it to our game jam (we will be providing a link very soon).
Please remember to include a thorough description of how to play the game when you submit it. I think we'd all agree that the limited time spent on figuring out the controls could have been time spent playing the game.
Oh, and don't forget to tweet about #GameJamPacked. We can use all the love we can get! ❤
