Sacramento Developer Collective would like to present our next Game Jam! We host monthly Game Jams with little twists here and there :) 

Here’s the challenge... make a game in 48 hours with no code. With countless no code tools at your disposal, what game will you make?

All Disciplines Welcome!

DISCLAIMER: If you'd still like to code for your game, that's fine, so long as you incorporate a no code tool for your submission to be valid. If you make your own no code tool for the jam and use it in your game, that's cool too! If you already have your own custom no code tool, use that!

You don’t have to be from Sacramento to join the jam!

This game jam will be running for 48 hours (with time for sleep of course, or no sleep at all) with additional resources being shared through our social media and more! So stay tuned!

Our theme will be announced the day of the jam! <3


Theme: TBA

If you'd like to create teams, come join us in our Discord and we have some Game Jam channels for you to work in :)

Some of the core functionalities of every game has: programming, art, audio, and/or design. Some games don’t need all of them, which is still just as doable, like tabletop games that don’t need code or audio.

After submissions, we'll take a look through everyone's games and see what everyone made as a last hour of presenting inside our discord!

Never made a game before? Sometimes trying to even start a game is the hardest part! 

A good way to get started is to follow a tutorial in creating the setup and after that, you can add all the other elements to really make it into your own game!
