The Linux game jam invites people to come together to make games on/for GNU/Linux!

Game Jam Rules:

  • You can use any engine. Your own custom built one (developed outside the jam) is totally fair game.
  • Your game specific programming should be done within the time frame of this jam.
  • Your game must be submitted to the official Itch.io game jam page before the end of the day April 30th (UTC).
  • Your game must have a Linux build.
  • Your game's Itch page should have a brief summary of your mechanics and clear instructions on installation, dependency requirements, and how to run the game.
  • Your game can use assets that you created or assets that are freely/open culture licensed (including music, sound effects, fonts, etc.). Freely licensed material must be given proper credit on your entry's page.
  • You’re allowed (and encouraged) to work in teams if you like. Head over to the community section, the Discord channel and look for people who want to team up.
  • There is no theme, but if you need inspiration or extra constraints, you can take a look at the optional prompt list.
  • Finally, you get one bonus point if your game is released under a Free/Open Source software licence, and a SECOND bonus point if your game is developed with open source tools.

There are no prizes, except the warm fuzzies you get from challenging yourself and having fun!


The Linux Game Jam was previously held in 2017, 2018, and 2019. You can find the 2023 jam page here!
