IMPORTANT: THIS GAME JAM IS FOR REAL NES GAMES!
Any submissions that are not built for the NES will be removed immediately.
Welcome to the annual NESDev Compo Game Jam! This yearly tradition has been a staple of the NES Homebrew community for over 10 years!
What makes the competition really special is that at the end of it all, every team that enters gets a real physical NES multi-cart with all the entries on it, often referred to as Action 53. Our hope is to continue that tradition, but to be fully transparent, manufacturing on the previous years carts are quite back-logged, so a new cart this year isn't guaranteed. Please keep that in mind!
The multi-cart is also sold to public in physical and digital form to fund the prizes for the next year! Yup, that's right, there are cash prizes too! (more info)
Rank Prize 1st $512 2nd $256 3rd $128 4th $64 5th $32 Stretch Goal: Limited Edition multi-carts for all meritorious entries (at judges discretion)
There are strict restrictions around which games are eligible for the competition. You can find detailed technical information here:
