Welcome to the second-ever MakeCode Arcade game jam! This is a week-long game jam with MakeCode Arcade, a game engine for retro pixel-art games that run in the browser or on dedicated low-cost handhelds. Check out some existing Arcade games below:
The theme for this jam is "One Room". In other words, the entirety of your game must take place in one room and use one (and only one) tilemap. There are no other restrictions on the mechanics of the game beyond that, so feel free to get creative! Some possible ways to interpret this theme:
MakeCode Arcade brings programming to life for students of all ages. Create fun projects, get immediate feedback, and code using either drag-and-drop blocks or text programming!
This game jam is designed to be an easy introduction to making games, even for folks without prior programming experience! We highly encourage parents and educators to work with interested students to bring their games to life.
Join our forums to chat with other participants as well as the MakeCode team. Tweet screenshots, process, and gameplay GIFs, with the hashtag #ArcadeJam so we can showcase your work!
