As part of the Tranzfuser Employment Pathway, Jamfuser is the ultimate summer game jam running from 12 noon Friday 28th May - 12 noon Friday 9th July.
Teams have 6-weeks to solely focus on making their game, then whilst the public voting period is open they will be encourage to engage with the general public to get people to play and vote on their game.
Jamfuser 2021 is being run as part of the new Tranzfuser Employment Pathway. The game jam is for university students and graduates looking to improve their CVs and increase their chances of securing that dream job in the game dev industry. It will be hosted virtually.
The jam will be fun, so there are no physical or cash prizes up for grabs. However, teams can anticipate the following outcomes from successfully submitting a game:
*invitation will be at the organisers' discretion.
Why take part?
Here at Tranzfuser HQ, we’re all about encouraging students and graduates with a passion for games development to turn that into a professional career. With that in mind, the purpose of Jamfuser 2021, and what taking part should mean for you, is:
So, if you love making games, if you want to develop your skill in a particular development area or perhaps you’ve never taken part in a game jam before and want to give it a try then this is the jam for you!
The Employment Pathway isn’t intended to provide you with a job opportunity through the game jam participation. It’s about preparing how team members lever their project participation to perform well in future job interviews. Please don’t expect that employers amongst the judges will hire you as a result, but when you do secure interview opportunities after the competition you’ll be ideally placed to dazzle them with the experience from this project.
Taking part is about improving your portfolio, CV and range of skills and hopefully increasing your chances of securing a great job after the summer.
Who can participate?
The FINAL DATE for teams to submit their Teams Registration Form is 12 noon Monday 24th May 2021.
Registration is now closed
Although Jamfuser 2021, as with most game jams, will have a central theme (to be announced at the start of the game jam) participants are not restricted to create a game that adheres to the theme. Participants will not be kicked out of the jam for disregarding it.
The theme is provided to help stimulate idea generation, but we encourage all participants to be creative - the theme doesn’t have to be taken literally!
Please do not use the theme in any part of your team or game name. Including the theme in your team or game name can be confusing when it comes to judging (especially if everyone else in the jam is using it as well!). Be creative and different from the rest when choosing your team / game name.
The theme will be announced at 12 noon Friday 28th May 2021.
Code of Conduct
As a community we encourage learning and skills development in a safe and welcoming environment. With this mind we ask that those who are taking part treat each other with respect and have pleasant manner when talking and interacting.
We will not accept, nor will we tolerate:
If you notice any behaviour that you feel contravenes this Code of Conduct, please contact the event organiser: email@example.com

After The Employment Pathway
The Employment Pathway is all about helping young games devs create a game that they can use as part of their portfolio when they want to get hired. Along the way you'll explore the world of professional game development; teamwork, skills development, etc. Completing a game and being able to talk about it is a great asset in getting hired.
What you do next is really up to you!
