GDL Anniversary Jam!

Welcome to the 15th GDL Game Jam!

I cannot believe how fast these 2 years have passed by. On the 24th of August GDL will officially be 2 years old!

So to celebrate we are running a big jam! that's right!

Double Length, Double Prizes and Double Voting time! get involved and have some fun and learn to make a game quickly!


The theme is double trouble! and the number 2, Make a game relating to the number 2 in any way you like. Maybe there are 2 players, maybe 2 weapon types, maybe you have to keep subtracting numbers from each other until you end up with the number 2.  Make the best game you can!


  • Contestants will have 6 Days of development time. (Friday 4th August 2017 12:00am => Thursday 8th August 2017 23:59pm) UTC Time (This is +0, Check the current time here > What is UTC TIME

  • Teams are allowed (prize will be split)
  • You have full creative freedom to make what you wish, However the spirit of the jam is to follow the theme and make the best game you can, If you don't you probably won't get disqualified but people tend to vote for the best game true to the theme.
