Hey, my name is Gardiner. I run the YouTube channel The Linux Gamer. I thought it would be fun to create a Linux Game Jam to promote Linux as a gaming platform. In case you missed it, here's the announcement video.

There are no winners or losers, really. My reasoning for allowing votes is mostly to curate the best stuff. By that criteria, vote for the games you like the best.

Here are the rules:

  • Your game's art assets and programming should be made within said time frame.
  • Your game must be submitted to this page.
  • Your game must have a Linux build.
  • Your game can use Godot, Unity, Love2d, any others, or your own custom built engine.
  • You get exactly one bonus point if your game is open source.
      • Bonus points are meaningless.

Make sure your submissions has any dependencies listed on the page!!!

Here's my postmortem of this event. Read it and let me know what you think.
