Welcome to the Godot Wild Jam which starts the second weekend of every month. 

Whether you're a person who likes to go wild,  a casual game dev, Godot fan, or you just stumbled upon the engine recently and would like to have a go at it, then this is the event for you.

Join us on Discord!

Interested in using the Godot Wild Jam logo in your game as a splash screen? Go to this Google Drive and download: Godot Wild Jam Logo.




Phase 1

Members of the Discord channel will be able to submit theme ideas to our #theme-vote channel. The channel will be unlocked for three days.

Phase 2

The organizers, will discuss and decide the actual theme. They will pick one from the suggested themes from the Discord.


Wildcards are an optional limitation to add a unique challenge in addition to the theme. Pick one or pick all. It's up to you. Wildcards are revealed at the same time as the theme, and there are always only 3 (except for this cool anniversary one). Ignoring wildcards completely will not incur a deduction in judging.

Please include the wildcard that you used in your splash screen, main menu, in-game, or credits screen to let us know which one you used. We recommend placing it on the splash/main menu screen or scaling the graphic down and placing it in a visible but unobtrusive way. All wildcard images will be available in the google drive via the folder path Wildcards -> GWJ #

    - No re-skinning of games made outside of the jam.

  6. Submissions require an export to Windows, Mac, and Linux. Please see under Links below on how to Export your game. In lieu of submitting 3 OS versions, a HTML5 export will works. Therefore, you must either export to all 3 operating systems AND/OR upload as HTML5.

  9. Have fun!

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the jam? 

The jam always starts on the second Friday of the month, at 10PM GMT. 

Do I have to do everything myself? 

Not at all! If you want to use public domain art/sounds or the like, that's entirely fine. And we encourage jammers to team up, too! 

Can I use stuff I've already made? 

To an extent. The spirit of the jam is that you make something new, not rejig an existing game to fit the criteria. 

Can I update the game during the voting period? 

Only to fix game-breaking problems that prevent a majority of players from progressing. This is primarily for bugs. Please do not add new content to your entry during the voting period.

> Fun: Was it fun? Enjoyable?

> Controls: How smooth is the game? Are the controls clunky or intuitive?

> Graphics: Does the game look good? Does the art style fit the type of game? Is the pixel art charming?

> Audio: How is the music? Does it fit? What about the sound effects?

> Originality: Were you pleasantly surprised by some game mechanic or design in the game?
