PROCJAM 2015 - COMING SOON!

The PROCJAM optional theme is INFINITY! The theme is OPTIONAL! It's more important you have fun and enjoy the jam than follow a theme.

Don't forget to tune in on Saturday on Twitch for our day of talks, and tweet using #procjam to tell the world what you're up to!


Make Something That Makes Something!

#procjam is a game jam about making stuff that makes other stuff - come and join in this November!

There are two ways to enter:

  • Make a game with procedural generation in it. Maybe a Twine adventure with randomised character personalities? Maybe an action-RPG where each player gets their own procedural theme tune? Maybe an old-fashioned world-generator for a strategy game? Create a game for #procjam using the optional theme (announced at the start of the jam) and include a procedural twist in there somewhere.
  • Make a tool that generates stuff to help game developers. We already have amazing tools like sound effect generator SFXR, music generation like Abundant Music, or random sprite-grabbers like Spritely. What other tools could we make to help people generate cool things for the games they make? Maybe a corporation generator for cyberpunk cities? A tool for generating alien alphabet fonts? A library that automatically generates enemy ships for space shooters?

Whatever you make, let us know what you're up to! Tweet with the hashtag #procjam and don't forget to submit your game to the jam using this page when you're done.

Find us on Twitter and Tumblr!


PLUS! Tune in on to Twitch on November 8th for a kickoff day of talks about Procedural Generation!

To start the jam off we're going to be livestreaming a day of talks from procedural generation experts on Twitch. Get inspired, learn some tricks, and get motivated for a week of jamming by hearing talks about music, world generation, cutting-edge research and more!

In London on November 8th? Come to see the talks live!

  • Tom Coxon (Lenna's Inception)
  • Darren Grey (Games of Grey, Roguelike Radio, Tales of Maj'Eyal)
  • Mark Johnson (Ultima Ratio Regum)
  • Hazel McKendrick (No Man's Sky)
  • Fernando Ramallo (Panoramical)
