We're thrilled to present the final product of the five second game jam! We've combined all the submissions into one file below, which can be played at the link above, or downloaded onto hardware. It's a fairly large file, but will work on the Meowbit and Pygamer devices. Thank you all for your participation, and stay in touch via our Twitter, Discord or forums to hear news about any future Arcade activities!
Welcome to the first-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:
In the spirit of WarioWare, Inc., you'll design a micro-game that can be played in 5 seconds! Afterwards, we'll combine these individual minigames into one game file so your creations can be played back-to-back. There are no restrictions on theme or game mechanics, as long as the game ends in five seconds.
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 five-second games to life.
