Welcome to Jammin - a yearly game jam that's all about putting Caribbean talent towards game development. Whether you're from the Caribbean, live in the Caribbean, or are part of a diaspora community - we want you working on the next cool game idea!
Will be announced when the jam starts!
The top three entrants will get prizes! Monetary prizes are in USD and will be sent as Amazon gift cards for simplicity.
Games will be ranked with these criteria (in no order):
Anything! We don't care. Unity, Godot, Unreal, Assembly, Game Maker, Phaser, LÖVE, - once you got a playable game it's all good. Follow your heart! And feel free to ask for advice on the Discord channel.
Try to export to the major desktop/mobile platforms as you can. HTML5 exports allow for almost anyone to play your game!
The old adage holds true - different strokes for different folks. However, given that it's only a week long, time management is key! Plan for about 2 days of work out of the 7, see what the essential things are. If things roll over, you got 5 more days so you should be OK! If you accomplish your MVP, then great, you can spice it up in another 1/2 day iteration! The best advice is to work on the most important things so that you have a working game as soon as possible.
Also, take note of the criteria Cater for all facets of your game in the project's time frame!
Looking for team members? Want some advice? Got a complaint to get your chest? No one would get you better than other game developers, it also wouldn't hurt to say hi!
