This is a unique gamejam to celebrate reaching the 5000 members in raylib Discord.
To celebrate all those events, I decided to host for the first time in 8 years an official raylib gamejam! :)
Continue reading to know more about this unique (and maybe one-off) event!
The goal of this gamejam is making a game with raylib in
8 DAYS... but with some technical constraints.
The main constraint for this gamejam is that the game MUST be a raylib WebAssembly game, it must be uploaded to itch.io and run on the browser. WebAssembly is a new emerging technology that I firmly believe will shape the world in a close future, what a better opportunity to learn it and create something unique?
I know this constraint could seem like a limitation for some users but I really think it is a great opportunity to
LEARN something new,
GROW your skills and
ENJOY videogames programming. And raylib was created for that.
WARNING! raylib is for ADVENTURERS! raylib is a C programming library, no visual editor or high-level engine features, just coding in the most pure spartan-programmers way. It's recommended to have some previous coding experience with raylib.
Hard constraints (mandatory requirements):
900pxmaximum (game height is up to the user ;))
.data) MUST be under 32MB
Soft constraints (recommended features):
The theme has been decided on a twitter poll.
AND THE THEME IS:
Games will be rated with a 5-star system in three different categories:
Games will be rated and awarded considering an hybrid votes model: public votes and jury votes.
NOTE: The jury will also take into account any double or unfair voting in the public voting system to balance the unfair votes.
The jury for the gamejam will be disclosed the same day the gamejam ends. All of them are experienced videogames/software developers.
The rating period will be of 1 WEEK after the gamejam ends, in that time people and jury can play and rate all the submitted games.
For everyone rating the games, it's recommended that you leave some feedback as part of the rating! It's more helpful than just a number!
The experience itself is way more valuable than any other prize! Actually, finishing a game under the constraints of this gamejam is a BIG achievement on itself... but, this time, we also have real prizes for the winners!
The prizes will be given to the 3 games that score more stars overall, pondering the public votes and jury votes at 50%.
Essential resources (mandatory to check):
Additional resources (recommended to check):
Does my game have to be a certain format?
Yes, games must be compiled to WebAsembly, uploaded to the itch.io game page and be playable on web automatically. You are free to also upload releases of the game for other raylib supported platforms (Windows, Linux, macOS...) but they won't be evaluated.
Can I use stuff that I already made?
You can use previous material created by you but the spirit of the jam is to make something new. Also note that game MUST follow the theme proposed for the jam that is disclosed in the moment the jam starts.
Do I have to do everything myself from scratch?
Not really, you can use free/public art/audio assets, some Resources are provided for that. Make sure the assets you use are are free for use or in the public domain. Also note that you can team up with other jammers up to 4 people if desired.
Can I update the game during the voting period?
No, once the gamejam is finished is not possible to update it. If there was any special situation, please contact me on Discord. I will review each case individually. Please, be careful when submitting your game.
Is there a Discord I can join to meetup other jammers?
Yes, you can join raylib Discord, there is a specific #gamejam channel to talk about the gamejam.
Game creators retain all rights of the gamejam submitted game.
Have fun! :D
