Welcome to the second annual Music Game Jam, where you have two weeks to make any music or audio themed game you want!
In particular, the Music Game Jam aims to facilitate an exploration of new, innovative approaches to the music game genre.
Continuing from the success of last year's Music Game Jam, let's keep expanding the repertoire of what music games can do, whether it's an interactive music video, a Beethoven RPG, or an FPS musical.
The only limit is your musical imagination!
1) Game prizes for participants who give the best game feedback and to my top picks (with a focus on innovation).
(please email me if you have any keys to donate!)
2) A special role in our Discord server!
3) Lots of feedback from other participants and YouTubers/streamers (see below)!
4) All participants will get a free unlimited asset license for Audiokinetic's Wwise audio software (until November 1st),
compatible with all popular game engines. Email me to request access.
5) bit-studio.com will write an article in both French and English about the winners
6) Most importantly, the satisfaction of finishing an awesome music-related game in just two weeks!
Jams are more fun when there's a community, so come join our Game Jammers Discord!

I've organised lots of YouTubers and streamers to play your Music Game Jam entries and give you great feedback!
Each new video will be tweeted about and posted in our Discord. I will also compile all the videos into one big YouTube playlist.
If you are a YouTuber or Twitch streamer interested in playing the games from this game jam, I can add you to a list in this section so participants and onlookers can easily find your content! If interested, please tweet me or email me.
After the submission period is over, you'll be able to rate entries on the following categories on a scale from 1 to 5 stars:
The voting period will run for roughly two weeks.
Don't forget to leave feedback on any game you rate! It's more helpful than just a number, and it helps them find your game :)
Who can participate?
Anyone! All experience levels, from beginner to expert, and all disciplines from coding and art to design and music, are free and encouraged to join this jam!
Do I have to use all 14 days?
Not at all! This game jam was extended from last year's 3 days to 2 weeks to allow more people to participate, and to allow participants to work on the game at their own pace (rather than a 72-hour crunch). It is expected that some games will be completed entirely in 1 or 2 days, whilst some will be completed in stages across the two weeks.
Can I use other peoples' work in my game?
We do not take responsibility for any unauthorised uses of other peoples' work and any consequences that may result from its use. Please use work that you are authorised to use or that you created from scratch yourself.
Do I keep the rights to my game?
Yes! You and your team keep the rights to everything you create for this game jam.
Is there any restriction on game engines?
Nope! You are free to use whichever game engine you like - including your own custom-built engines - as long as you create the code and assets specific to this game from scratch.
What kinds of games can I make?
You make any game where music or audio is a central part of the gameplay or story!
Can I update my game after the deadline?
Yes! Feel free to use the feedback you get during the voting period to keep improving your game!
