This is an event in which you'll have 9 days to create 3D, 2.5D, or pseudo-3D games using GDevelop, the free and open-source game engine. Two methods of creating a 3D game with GDevelop are by using PANDAKO's 3D extension, or the new 3D box object that is currently in development.  Once the submission period is over, your game will get rated by other participants, and you will also get to rate other games. 

The GDevelop Game Jam will be a fun, diverse, and inclusive event in which you'll get to put your skills to the test. There will be participants from all over the world, and you will have the opportunity to chat with other developers, discuss each other's games and of course, create a game from start to finish! 

You need to register for the event right here on in order to participate. Please also join our Discord server for all information and notifications regarding the jam, and to meet the other participants. 

Whether you finish your game or not, you'll have an amazing experience, learn tons and meet cool people from around the world!

  • The game itself must be made within the jam time period, and you may not submit any work or updates during the voting period.
  • You may use pre-made, publicly available, and purchased assets, as well as GDevelop's built-in asset library, or other assets you have the legal rights to use. Just remember to credit properly.

Not acceptable use of pre-existing code:
-Reuse of an existing project with changed art assets
-Reuse of an existing project with minimal changes
-Submission of a project worked on prior to the jam (We can check)

Creating games with other people is a fantastic experience and is also very helpful to reach the end of the jam with a finished game, so do think about teaming up if you haven't. 

If a game is not published on and (see video below for instructions), participation in the jam will be considered invalid.

All games will be rated in the following categories:

  • Fun & Game Design: Do you want to continue playing? How enjoyable is the game? Is the interface usable?
  • Audio: How nice does the game sound? Does it implement cool music and sound effects?
  • Graphics: How nice does the game look? Is the art nice to look at?
  • Originality & Innovation: How often did you say "Wow! That's unexpected and clever" when playing?
  • Theme: How relevant is the game to the jam's theme?

Don’t worry about this too much, though. The most important thing is that you participate, have fun, and stick to the jam’s theme! Once the submission period is closed, you will have one week to rate other people’s games.
