notGDCJam is a game jam for those not attending the (cancelled) Game Developers Conference!

Not everyone can make it to the GDC but should still feel like a part of the game design community.
So for those of us not attending, we have our own 7 day game jam for fun!
We invite you to come and make a game with no pressure, relaxed rules, and all for community fun!
Join other game designers in celebrating our craft without the price of hotel and travel!

Join us on the notGDC Discord! (https://discord.gg/NEdNauP)

Take part in the notGDC non-conference and share your ideas and wisdom
! (http://www.notgdc.fun/)

We encourage you to make whatever you want!

We would love to see a variety of ideas from A to Z such as:
- Video  Games 
- Board Games
- Card Games
- Interactive Stories 
- Anything gaming related!

Since this is a super chill game jam, the theme isn't 100% mandatory.
We will provide a list of optional themes at the start of the jam.
Use one, use them all, mix them up into something awesome, the choice is yours.

The themes are:

Icecream
Medical
Transport
Nose
Feline

- You may use existing assets/code libraries/etc but you have to start your project fresh for this jam.
- This isn't a jam to 'finish an existing project.' This is for fun, not a place to get your existing project noticed.
- Team and Solo projects are welcome.
- Anything hateful/sexist/racist/etc won't be allowed. Let's leave the nasty outside.
- Have fun!



Where do I find teammates?

Check the #gamejam channel on the notGDC discord or ask right here in the community tab.

Can I update my game after I’ve submitted it?

Yes! You can update your game after submitting it–even after the jam

Are games rated or placed? Do you have prizes?

We don’t rate or place games or offer prizes. The jam isn’t a competition–it’s a community!

Help! I left my submission until too late!

No worries. Contact madmarcel on twitter or on the notGDC discord (#notgdc-jam channel or message marcel#5000) and he'll help you out.

Can I start a bit earlier, when the themes are announced?

Sure, we're super chill here. Go for it.

Thank you for taking the time to participate in this jam and we look forward to the awesome stuff you're going to create!
Don't forget to pop into the notGDC Discord to hang out!
