CØNTACT Systems' first ever Game Jam is here. It’s a virtual Jam, starting on May 8, 2020, to kick off the release of our Kalorian community marketplace. Below, you will find the rules to the Jam, how to enter, and what prizes our winners will receive (hint: CASH!). We plan to host in-person Jams & meet-ups in the near future, but for now, we’re excited to get going - so let’s jam!

The purpose of this Jam is several fold: first and foremost, as a gaming technology company, we feel this is a great opportunity to introduce ourselves to the Indie Game Dev community. We know this to be a huge and passionate group with the same goals and desires we have: namely, to make, play and share great games.

Second, as a start-up and creator of tools to help developers capitalize on a hugely untapped market, we thought this was a great opportunity to introduce our tools to a segment of the community who would most benefit from their usage.


There will be a secret theme revealed at the start of the Jam and it will most certainly impact the style of the game and how you’ll want to make it, so make sure to check back here or keep an eye on our Twitter account, where we’ll reveal the theme the day before the Jam kicks off.

  1.   All SDKs, Libraries, and Project Bases are allowed; must give attribution to anything used that was not created during the Game Jam
  2.   All entries must be submitted as HTML5, any game engine is allowed but it MUST run in a browser (Unreal Engine, Unity3D, Godot, etc)
  3.   Use any existing codebase you have! (yup, no need to start fresh!)
    1. Teams are encouraged to create NEW projects for this Jam, based on the secret (TBA) theme, but can use some pre-existing assets and code to help you get started
  4.   Feel free to use any game assets (artwork/music/audio/etc...) you may have created previously!
  5.   All games must be submitted by May 10th @ 11:59PM PDT

Theme

As mentioned above, there is a secret theme for this Game Jam that will be shared via our social channels the day before the contest kicks off (May 7, 2020). We'll also be sending it out via email, along with additional event details, at the same time as the social posts go live - so be sure that your register for the Game Jam using your preferred email address and keep an eye out for this email!


Prizing

In addition to the cash prizes above, we’ll invite the top five games to be a part of our Kalorian Marketplace. To help facilitate this process, we will be more than happy to help by providing assistance with integration of our Kalorian SDK into your game.


Submission Details

Please include the following with your submission:

  • 3-5 screenshots of your game
  • A short video of your game being played
  • You will have to upload a playable version of the game
    • Submit your game to itch.io, or, if the file size is too big - compress your binaries and upload them to a Google Drive (or something similar) and share a link with us
    • Share a link to your submission on Twitter, tagging it with @KalorianMarket and #KalorianJam
  • Instructions on how to play the game
  • Upload must commence by 05/10/2020 @ 11:59 PM, nothing will be accepted after the Jam submission window has closed.
    • On 5/7/2020 (the day before the event), we'll send an email to the address you provided upon registration. This email will include information on how to submit your entry for judging.


Teams

  • Registration - All members of the team need to register, not just the team leader; we want to ensure all members get proper credit for their contributions and will reach out to each team member individually to deliver prizing
  • Team Size Limit - There is NO LIMIT to the size of your team, but remember - prizing is awarded per team and is divided among team members


Judging

Games will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  • Fun - The most important factor in any game (in our humble opinion): how well does it entertain? If your game is fun, you will do well!
  • Graphics/Art Style - How good does your game look? Does it fit with the style of gameplay? (Remember, more complex doesn’t always mean better.)
  • Sound/Audio - How well does the sound design fit the game? Whether it’s some ambient background music or in-game sounds, the audio can really help set a game apart.
  • Theme Integration - How well did you incorporate the “secret” theme into the game? Theme will be announced once KJam kicks off.
  • Creativity - How well you integrated the Theme into the game, and how it was used.
  • Game Mechanics - How interesting & intuitive the theme was handled in the creation of the mechanics for the game.

*Judges will review all entries within 1 week of final submission and contact the winners by EOD, 5/18/20.

(We’ll implement community voting in future jams!)
