What is libGDX?

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

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 tenth 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. Watch all the previous games played in length on YouTube.

Special Halloween Rules

In a delightful turn of events, our regular jam schedule coincides with Halloween. In the spirit of the holiday, we have determined that we will announce the theme early. All jam entries must relate to Halloween in some way. Otherwise, the theme is yours to play with. There will be no theme voting this time!

Schedule

Jam: 10/20/19 - 10/26/19. Participants will create their games and rejoice! THE THEME IS "HALLOWEEN"

Games must be submitted before 12:01 AM on 10/27/19

Rules

  • The game must be created with the libGDX framework.
  • The game must be created within the jam period. Late submissions are to be approved by admins.
  • Starter projects and templates are permitted so long as they are not fully fledged games.
  • You can work in groups or individually.
  • Your game must be based on the theme "Halloween".
  • Any and all copyright laws pertaining to assets you use must be followed.
