Welcome to the first ever GamesPlusJames community Game Jam!

Building and making complete games is a lot of work, that takes a long time. But that's where game jams come in! You have 72 hours, you're given a theme to inspire you and then you just make something small and fun!

Whether you've yet to release a game or have released a bunch, developing and building a small game in one weekend is a great way to test your skills, and most importantly at the end of it all you've got a game officially released. And if you're in the middle of making a game, doing a game jam can help give your brain a break from your normal design problems and after the jam you'll feel even more inspired to get back to your game!

Some amazing game jam games have been made in just a few hours, and as it's a game jam, your entry doesn't need to be beautiful and polished, just getting across the core mechanic in a fun way is more than enough! There is no requirement to spend the full time allowed making your game, feel free to submit early or enter in the middle of the jam. 

So join the jam and lets make some games!

What is the theme?

The theme is TIME!

Check out the announcement video here:


What are the rules?

The rules are pretty straightforward whether you’ve participated in a game jam before or not!

  • Work alone or in teams, just let us know who made it
  • Try and stick to the given theme, but don’t be afraid to take it in an unexpected direction!
  • You can use publicly available assets (e.g. Kenney asset packs) but make sure you mention it in your submission!
  • Build your game for any platform, but make sure there is a Windows build so I can play it on stream!
  • Most importantly, have fun!

Livestreaming

I will be streaming development of my entry at twitch.tv/gamesplusjames during the whole weekend! You can join me there while working on your own game, or even better stream yourself working on a game! If you do stream make sure to include the hashtag #GPJam in the title so people can find you and I can tweet you out! I will also be playing all entries over at twitch.tv.gamesplusjames after the jam has ended so make sure you stop by to see your entry being played!

Are there any prizes?

There will be a prize for my personal favourite game, as well as the game voted best by the community! Obviously this won’t include my own entry, of course :)

What programs can I use to make the game?

Anything you want! Use Unity, Unreal, GameMaker, Construct, Flash, Godot, your own engine or whatever other software system you want to use. It doesn’t matter what you build it in, just make a game!

How can I submit my game?

Once you've hit the Join Jam button at the top of the page, and the jam has started, it'll be replaced by a "Submit Entry" button. From here you'll be either able to create a game page for your entry, or if you created the page already before submitting it'll give you the option to add your game to the jam. Then just make sure you have the correct files uploaded here on itch! :)
