10th May - 17th May
Theme: Classic Arcade Mashup
Your jam coordinators: Xor, meseta, Juju
We introduce to you the “Git Together” jam: an experiment in chaos and organisation.
As a participant in the Git Together jam, you’ll be making history - a ramshackle band of strangers working together on one GitHub repo containing one GameMaker project file to make one game over the course of 7 days.
We’ll give you a theme to start you off, we’ll give you a Discord server to communicate, we’ll give you a GitHub repo to work in. But we’re not going to tell you how to organise yourselves - that’s down to you.
How do I win? What’s the prize?
It’s everything or nothing: If the game compiles and runs at the end of the seven days, everyone wins. If the game doesn’t compile and doesn’t run then everyone loses. You succeed or fail together.
It doesn’t matter if the game is good or bad, so long as you ship it.
As for the prizes - if the game compiles then we’ll host it on Steam and on itch.io for the entire world to marvel at. We’ll also hand out individual accolades for especially brilliant contributions that we’re 100% going to make up on the spot. Inspire us. Be excellent.
Here’s what we need from you:
When (if!) the jam coordinators put the game onto Steam or itch.io or any other platform, it will be available for free with no donation possible. We have no interest in monetising this jam.
Additionally, we should clear up some things about intellectual property rights; to put it plainly, “who owns what”. Everything that gets made for this game jam will be All Rights Reserved. That’s all the code, art, audio... whatever - it belongs to the person who made it and you are not allowed to reuse it without express permission. If more than one person contributed to the creation or editing of an asset then all contributors must consent for an asset to be reused.
