Music Game Jam will be back in 2018! Join early here.



Welcome to the MUSIC GAME JAM, a game jam where you create a music-related game in one weekend!

In particular, the Music Game Jam aims to facilitate an exploration of new, innovative approaches to the music game genre.

It’s not limited to rhythm games - you could create an 8-bit tribute to your favourite band, an interactive music video, a Beethoven RPG, or an FPS musical - the only limit is your musical imagination! 

And of course, all skill levels and disciplines (art, music, code, design) are welcome!


VOTING

Voting was open to the public, with ratings from 1 to 5 stars on the following categories:

  • Overall: your overall impression as to the quality of the game.
  • Music: how well-crafted and unique was the music? Was the music well-integrated into the game?
  • Innovation: to what extent does this game bring new mechanics, ideas, perspectives, and creativity, to music-related games?
  • Fun: how much did you enjoy playing this game? Did this game make you lose track of time? Was it addictive?
  • Visuals: how visually-impressive was the game? Did it have a unique art style that complemented the music and gameplay?
