What is Kentucky Fried Pixels?

Kentucky Fried Pixels is a month-long series of events designed to empower and nurture local game creators and provide them the tools necessary to successfully complete a game from initial concept to polish, marketing, release, and beyond.

This will be the third year Louisville Makes Games is running Kentucky Fried Pixels, a jam and bundle of games made almost exclusively in Kentucky! Throughout the month of July, local game creators are tasked with making games in a month. This results, in a lot of cases, in some really polished games! This isn't a competition and everyone is welcome! Come follow our development from June 22nd to July 22nd, or join along yourself!


How is this jam different from others?

Along with consisting almost entirely of homegrown, Kentucky games, the other thing that makes this jam unique is that this jam is split into two main development periods:

  • 48-hour kick-off jam
    • Prototype your game in 48 hours starting June 22nd!
    • June 22nd from 7PM to June 24th to 7PM
  • One month development jam
    • Spend the rest of the month polishing your team's game and work on something really unique and polished!
    • Games are due July 22nd at 11:59PM

Shortly after the jam is over, the eligible games will be invited to join the Kentucky Fried Pixels bundle on August 2nd for Pay What You Want! 100% of the proceeds of Kentucky Fried Pixels will be split among the development teams evenly. From there, it will be up to the individual teams to distribute the money to each team member.
