Optional Theme: Adventure Game

First PowerPoint Game Jam was hosted by PPTDEV. Link to original Game Jam can be found here.

  • Uh...Why use PowerPoint?

Why not? It is known that PowerPoint is capable for making games along with adding VBA  to code things! Consider this a challenge to create something out your comfort zone. Here are a couple examples of it's capabilities!

- Hyperlinks - Triggers - Mouse Over Detection
 - VBA/ Macros - Animations -Layers  - Grouping Objects  - Many More
  • I don't have PowerPoint! 

No worries! There are other programs out there that allow you to make and play most PowerPoint files. 

 Here's a list of programs you can download/use:


PowerPoint Online

Google Slides

Or you can download a free trial of PowerPoint:


  1.  All submissions must be a PowerPoint File. (.pptx, .pptm, .ppsx, .ppsm, .pps, and the like)
  2. Keep your content family friendly (people who are 18 or below can play) No Exceptions.
  3. Releasing a playable demo is fine.  Whatever work you feel is polished enough to share is encouraged to be posted. 
  4. Anyone who reaches their goal during the jam are winners and are encouraged to submit their game.
  5. Tag all submissions accordingly!

  • Make use of pre-made and paid assets in your project is also allowed, provided you use them according to the creator's terms.
  • Submit unfinished work if you feel comfortable sharing it; you don't have to submit a perfectly-polished project and are welcome to show off whatever you create as a prototype or proof-of-concept, whether it's an unfinished demo or a collection of assets you were able to create during the jam.
