"What's a jam?" and Other Frequently Asked Questions

Our optional theme is: a spin on a popular story/myth! (Optional as in no, you don't have to use the theme.)

Never made a game before but always been curious? My First Game Jam is an online game jam for people of all skill levels to learn something new. Set aside two weeks to join the jam and learn how to make a game along with others. Absolute beginners encouraged to join! This past January, our first My First Game Jam had 500 signups and over 100 games submitted! Quite a few people were unable to participate because of the poor timing, so we're excited to hold a summer jam with more convenient dates.

Our goal is to organize resources and make game development more accessible. We hope to foster an online space where you can share your progress with other first-time game makers and get help from experienced devs. By the end of two weeks, you will hopefully have some working game or prototype to share—it's an exciting first step to making games! Individuals and teams are welcome, and we encourage you to both play to your strengths and try something new.

We look forward to seeing you!
