This jam is now over. It ran from 2015-01-23 06:00:00 to 2015-01-25 18:00:00. View 2 entries
It all started when a group of friends wanted to participate in the Global Game Jam but couldn't go. So we decided to meet in one of our houses and do the Jam ourselves. In gaming conventions, people that do events outside of the normal schedule call it a "shadowcon". The Global Game Jam generally do not approve of "home" sites, so we're making this unofficial Shadow Jam.
The Global Shadow Jam will follow the same principles are the GGJ, in regards to the theme and diversifiers, but you can participate from wherever you want. Since we're from Israel our weekend lasts from Friday morning until Saturday evening, so the GSJ will last for about 36 hours instead of the normal 48. If you have Sunday off as well, fill free to continue working and submit your result after that.
Watch the livestream VODs on our YouTube channel.
What Is a Game Jam?
The goal is to come together and make a video game, or non-digital game like a board game or card game. Participants rapidly prototype game designs and hopefully inject new ideas to help grow the game industry. We share a common theme and constraints. We ask participants to create a game from beginning to end in a prescribed time.
Do I Need Special Skills to Participate in the GSJ?
Although having computer skills is helpful, code experience is not necessary. Designers, developers, artists and anyone is welcome to try their hand at making a game during the GSJ.
Is the GSJ Only for Professionals?
No. Everyone is welcome.
Who Owns the Intellectual Property of Games Made during GSJ?
The team/makers of the game hold all IP rights. However, the Global Shadow Jam may use the games for demonstration as it sees fit. All games must be posted in the condition they are in as of the close of the GSJ event (Sunday).
