Welcome to the 32nd GDL Game Jam! (Please read below as some things have changed)
Thanks to everyone who gets involved with our jams, we love seeing the stuff you create and are so happy to be encouraging developers to just make something exist. One of the hardest parts of Game Developing is just making something, Putting it out there for all the world to see, it can be so daunting, But remember developing games is a skill just like any other, It can be learned, It can be repeated and you will improve over time.
The fastest way to improve is to train! Make something every chance you get and that's where these game jams come in. The purpose of the GDL Game Jams are not about the prizes, I put those up just to create an extra incentive for those who need that extra push, The point is just to get you making something. Dreaming up an idea, Putting those ideas into actionable steps and following through. Only by first creating something, can we then make a hypothesis on how to improve it and take steps to implement those improvements. So what are you waiting for? Register for the Game Jam and start improving your skills.
Size does matter... Make a game where size really does matter!
Now I don't like to make these jams about the prizes as i think you
are a winner just for getting involved and making something.
sometimes we need that little extra push, This jam has been long overdue to the GDL kitty is overflowing. On top of that we have received some very generous donations to make the prizes beefier!
Top 3 places will be rewarded with awesome special roles in the Discord Server!
As well as: If there are more than 10 Submissions Prizes are:
If we get more than 20 submissions, I'll double the prizes!!!

That's right for the first time we will offer up any sort of gift card I am able to buy online and send to you. I don't mind whether it is Amazon or what have you. The only requirement is that I can actually buy it online using paypal and send you a code or whatever. Steam is also valid but see below.
Steam has introduced a 3 day waiting period on sending gift cards to friends, So the winners will need to friend me on steam and after 3 days i can send them their prize!
