Update: Good Job Everyone!!!

Y'all did amazing and we're so proud of everyone! If you're local to DFW we're looking forward to seeing everyone at the wrap up event: the IGDA Winter Party! It's on the 25th. Be sure to grab a ticket. Even if they sell out, they will be selling tickets at the door.

Our panel of community organizers, lead developers at local studios, and educators have worked hard to play everyone's games. We have our winners! πŸ€  🌘 πŸ€

Make a game to mark the New Year! 

The Lunar Jam celebrates starts with the New Year and concludes with a big party on the Lunar New Year

The theme is Lunar πŸŒ’

You can do a lot with that! Moons? It's also the Lunar New Year on the day of the wrap up event! Maybe something about the year of the Rat? No-matter what you come up with, have fun with it!

We're announcing the theme ahead of time, so you can think about it! BUT! Don't start until the jam starts.
