What is libGDX?

libGDX is an open-source, cross-platform game development framework built in Java:

Unlike many popular editor-based platforms, libGDX is entirely code-centric, offering developers fine-grain control over every aspect of their game. It is the perfect place for exploring ground-up implementations, built on top of lightning-fast OpenGL, and distributable to Desktop, HTML, Android, and iOS.

The libGDX Jam

With our 23rd collaboration, the libGDX Jam continues the time honored tradition of making awesome games using the best framework out there. We encourage camaraderie, teamwork, and good sportsmanship with a side of well-intentioned buffoonery.

Theme Voting: 12/8/22 - 12/10/22.  Everyone will vote on their favorite theme. May the best win!

Jam: 12/11/22 - 12/17/22. Participants will create their games and rejoice!
