  • Your entry must not contain any NSFW/Adult content. 
  • You own all associated rights to any content produced.

GDN Group Finder System

We know how difficult forming teams can be, especially for beginners! To help make this process easier, we have created a bot based entirely on Discord where you can create a profile with information such as your role, experience, teammate preferences, time commitment and so much more! 

Our bot's fancy algorithm will then get to work on finding you your perfect team! 

To use our Group Finder, head over the #group-finder channel in GameDevNetwork.
You must have filled in a post in #introductions to see the channel

 

Get involved with the community by sharing your progress updates, get feedback from your fellow jammers, and browse all the other goodies we have to share! 

If this is your first time hearing of us, we're a totally voulentry-ran group of devs that just really love bringing people together to make cool things happen. No catches! 

You can join us at https://discord.gg/gdn

 

While we avoid any high-ticket prizes as we believe it takes away from the collaborative/experimental nature of game jams, we do have a few GDN goodies to give away! 

Each member of the winning team shall receive: 

  • GDN Enamel Pin
  • GDN Wallet Ninja
  • GDN Sticker Set

โค But wait! There's more

We'll be selecting random winners sharing their progress via Twitter using the hashtag #GDNJam, and in the spirit of jamming, those actively supporting their fellow gamedevs in our Discord Game Jam channels.
