Nexus Game Jam is back for its 3rd edition!

We decided to change the formula and make it 2 weeks long to give everyone a chance to participate and for the 1st time we will offer a prize to the winners! After the jam, participants and contributors will have 2 weeks to vote for their favorite games and finally the judge will choose the winner from the best rated games!

The main goal of NGJ stay the same. Follow the theme, include the special object and make the most creative game out of it!

We started Kronnect in 2015 to create amazing tools and assets for the Unity platform – we don’t know about borders, so our team is composed of passionates and hardcore coders and artists around the globe. We create assets with the highest standards so our customers can materialize their dreams with confidence.
