QaziJam is a game jam that started out on QaziTV's Twitch channel. The idea is that there are no hard and fast rules or guidelines to follow, other than gearing yourself up to make a game in a short amount of time! The goals of QaziJams are to either help you get started as a gamedev or to help you get better if you already make games. No matter what you make, you'll always increase in power level after a game jam.
QaziJam 9 primary focus will be raising money for charity by game jamming! Our sponsors have pledged to donate certain amounts for every game created for the jam! So the more games you make, the more money we can raise for good! Every dollar donated to the stream during the jam will also be given to the charity.
If you would like to pledge for the jam, you can do so by filling out the form here: https://goo.gl/forms/YwvY6re1REp7NGfO2
You can donate directly to Buffalo Game Space here: https://twitch.streamlabs.com/buffalogamespace to get a shoutout on stream and an endless supply of love from all of us!
Qazi will be raising money for the Buffalo Game Space! Buffalo Game Space is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to helping people make games, by offering the educational, mentorship, and equipment resources to both professional and aspiring game developers. The group has done some amazing work in the NY region, teaching high school students how to make games, offering scholarships for underprivileged students to learn game development, and much more!
To make things even sweeter, Buffalo Game Space will be hosting a game jam on the same weekend as QJ9, so we'll be streaming on location at the space! Ludum Dare is also being hosted this weekend, so you're welcome to submit your LD games as well!
Qazi streams the development of his jam game live at https://www.twitch.tv/qazitv and encourages you to stream your development as well! Remember to use #qazijam whenever you do!
The very awesome GottZ has even made us a little browser overlay that will countdown once the jam starts! Get it here:
This Jam has no theme! Do whatever the heck you want! Seriously!
If you also plan on entering Ludum Dare, or BGSJam 8 which are also the same weekend, feel free to use the theme from those jams!
The rules for the jam are simple
To submit your game, just create and upload your finished game to itch.io from your Dashboard, and then it will be visible to choose as your submission for this game jam when you click the Submit button at the top of this page.
Note: The submit button does not appear until the jam begins, but once it starts, you may submit your game at any time!
You retain ALL rights to your creations. NO distribution rights to ANYTHING you post on this website are claimed by QaziTV or affiliates of QaziJam. You can do whatever you want with your finished game. Expand it, sell it, release it, delete it. It's up to you. That being said, be aware that all of the terms and conditions of Itch.io stand on their own and must be agreed to upon creating an account and uploading games to their service.
The organizers do request the right to use your game for purpose of publicizing the competition.
The following paragraph should go without saying, but:
If you used any resources within your game that you personally did not create (graphics, music, sounds, whatever), the creators of those resources retain whatever rights they originally specified when you retrieved the resources. You will also be considered a significantly better person if you provide adequate credit to the original creators within your game as well over if you do not include credit. DO NOT USE resources that you do not explicitly have permission to use or else you will be rightfully subject to the consequences of doing so.
You just made a freaking game!!
