GAME JAM WILL RUN FROM 00:00 on February 11th to 00:00 on February 21st, GMT-3.

This is an event in which you'll have 10 days to create games using GDevelop, the free and open-source game engine. 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 theme is: Build/Rebuild

Here are the rules for participating in this event:

  • You must use the GDevelop game engine to make your game. The engine is free and open-source. You can find it on our official website.
  • The games must not include offensive, discriminatory, or NSFW content of any kind. This is an event for anyone and everyone! So don’t be rude. 
  • Games must be submitted through
  • Games must be published to be played on browsers (bonus thumbs up for mobile compatibility!), without requiring extra hardware.
  • Any text must be in English.
  • 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. A game asset doesn't refer to code, which is essentially what an extension is. If an extension is publicly released and available by searching in the engine then it can be considered a part of the engine, or at least it's available to everyone who has the engine installed. Any privately made or privately distributed extensions, made prior to the jam, would be code not considered to be within the engine, and therefore is not allowed.
  • You may team up! And we encourage it. You can find teammates on our Discord server. The maximum number of team members allowed is 4. 
  • You may not submit any work or updates after the submission period is over. 

Using game assets that you do not have the legal right to use will result in your game being removed from the jam.

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. 

By participating in the game jam, you accept that we may take screenshots of your game to showcase it on GDevelop’s social media and marketing channels.

We also recommend that you publish it using the built-in option within GDevelop (in addition to so your game can be listed on a page showing GDevelop games (more about that soon!).

If you're having trouble uploading a web build because of the 1k item limit on, make sure you have a desktop build on your jam page to act as the official submission.  And after ensuring your game page has the desktop build, if your game is smaller than 100mb, you can upload it to and share the link on your game jam page for people to play your game through as well.

All games will be rated in the following categories:

  • Fun & Game Design: Do you want to continue playing? How enjoyable is the game? 
  • 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.

The 20 games with the highest overall scores will be declared Community Winners. All developers involved in creating these games will receive a 1-year GDevelop premium membership and the opportunity to be considered for the Judges’ Awards.

The Judges’ Awards are as follows:

  1. USD $1024 1st place prize

  3. USD $256 3rd place prize
  4. USD $128 4th place prize
  5. USD $64 5th place prize

We'll look at the community's most voted games to decide the winner - though if there is a hidden gem in the rest, we might pick it too in our winner list! Payment of the prizes will be made via PayPal. If the winner(s) do not possess a valid PayPal account, we will do our utmost to accommodate other payment methods. If you win, you can also choose not to claim the prize and instead give it to a charity of your choice.
