YoYo Games are proud to present the world's first GameMaker Studio 2 Game Jam! Submit a game & project files any time in the next two weeks and help us make history.

The theme for this first jam is Arena. As an added criteria we want to see as much use of the new tile mapping features in GameMaker Studio 2!

If you need help getting started, there are official tutorials built around constructing a simple top down arena shooter available on YouTube, and also built into the IDE as written tutorials.

Making a game is what counts, so if the theme doesn't work for you then feel free to create anything you like. The main rule here is it has to be created using GameMaker Studio 2. To this end, we'll need entrants to share their project files. Doing this is also a great way to encourage developers to learn from each other and also means that users of the free Trial version can also enter. We can't wait to see what you'll do with our new tools.

To reiterate, the rules are:

  • Games must be made with GameMaker Studio 2, games built with 1.x do not qualify.
  • Games must include their GMS2 project files for verification.
  • Teams are allowed, but only one prize pack will be issued to winning teams.
  • Do not include source code or assets that you do not have the right to redistribute. (Marketplace assets, etc.).

The games will be judged internally and the winner will receive a trophy from YoYo Games and will be highlighted on our website. The top three developers will also receive a goody pack including a GameMaker Studio 2 T-shirt, messenger bag, squeeze ball and bottle opener:

Best of luck, the clock starts now!
