This jam is now over. It ran from 2021-12-03 00:00:00 to 2021-12-13 00:00:00. View 69 entries

PROCJAM is a jam about making generative software - computer programs that make things when you run them, like art, music, games, stories, wallpapers, recipes, poetry or anything else you can think of. It's an exciting, different way to be creative, and PROCJAM is here to help you get started, find friends, and have fun with it!

Questions? Fancy a chat? Looking for a jam partner? Be sure to join our Discord.

This year again, PROCJAM is teaming up with 7DFPS ! We encourage you to sign up for their jam too, and build an entry for both jams!

The 2021 Optional Jam Theme is.... CHANGE

In the words of our beloved organiser, Discord mod and theme-suggester Hectate: "So many procedural projects just produce static output. What about ones that are dynamic, living creations that continually surprise us?"

This jam theme is completely optional - but let us know if it inspired you to make something!

Getting Started

PROCJAM has a treasure trove of resources for you, including hours of talks, tutorials, free art packs and a community-made zine.

Rules

PROCJAM has just one rule: make something that makes something. If you don't know what that might be, or are new to generative software, make sure to visit our website to find our Getting Started resources! PROCJAM is different to most game jams. We emphasise having a fun, healthy jam experience. So:

  • You can start before the start date, and finish after the end date - contact us on Twitter or on our Discord for a 'late' submission. Don't overwork, and take breaks!
  • You can use existing code/art/writing/anything or even continue an existing project. Feel free to add something generative to a game you're making and submit that!
  • We welcome all kinds of submissions. No entry is too small or too big for this jam. Whether this is your first generator of your hundredth, we welcome what you've made, and we all want to see it.
  • PROCJAM has no winners and no losers. We try to highlight and celebrate all our entries, and everyone who enters will get featured in Jupiter Hadley's YouTube compilation of the jam!

Seeds

Seeds is our zine about generative systems, where YOU can submit your own article on anything related to procedural generation, whether it is a technical tutorial or a lengthy discussion on a specific subject related to generative software. This year, we extended the deadline to the end of January 2022, so you could write something about your jam entry if you would like. The form for submission is available here.
