What is GJL Game Parade?

It's the official Game Jobs Live game jam! A one-week long marathon to showcase your talent and to have fun together building short experiences or tiny, fun, games. As usual, we've partnered with many industry veterans and famous studios that are so eager to provide their judgement and find their next great hire. Stay tuned for more studios to be announced!


Who can join?

Anyone! From every part of the world, of any age. We allow teams and solo developers: show your skills, have fun, enlarge your portfolio! We suggest teams to have no more than 6 members, it may become tricky to manage larger ones.

Theme

The theme selected is: CARPE DIEM / SEIZE THE DAY.

Tools and Shortcuts

There are no restrictions on tools, software, asset/sound packs you can use during the jam; it's yours to ensure yourself the legal right to use them. On submission, you'll be asked to declare and list any packs you may have used. We encourage teams to build as much from scratch as they want, that's the fun of a jam!

Submission

The projects need to run on Windows or browser. You can support other platforms, but ensure one of the two above to make the wider audience play your game! On submission, you'll be asked to provide a link to download and inspect your project's source code. That's not part of the evaluation process, but we may have some judges wishing to do it.

Rating & Judging

The rating period will last two weeks: everyone can vote, even non-participating folks. During the second week, our industry partners will jump in to provide their evaluation. It will be exposed through the "Judge's pick" categories. The public will rate the games in terms of Overall, Visuals, Fun, and Sound. The first criterion is about the overall experience and enjoyment, the others are quite self-expressed.

Ownership

Every game and content you will submit to the jam page is yours/your team property. Game Jobs Live will never claim any ownership. But by taking part you give permission to Games Jobs Live to show any submission in YouTube etc videos and livestreams.

Official Channels

We created an official Game Parade Discord server you may want to join to look for teammates or have confrontation and support during before and during the jam. Here's the link: Games Jobs Live Discord . You'll find channels for DevLogs and Post Mortems: we highly encourage teams to write a daily progress report to underline the challenges and the solutions your team applied, sharing how your team works and how it overcomes any obstacle or issue. Let's make this a shared experience so we can all grow together! 


Thanks for joining us. If you have any doubt or question join our Discord server: we're eager to solve and answer!
Take your chances to expose your talent to the industry, you'll never know!
We hope everyone will have a lot of fun!
