SA GAME JAM is an annual competition sponsored by Free Lives. Our mission is to encourage more South Africans to try their hand at game making, and to support emerging and established developers. A rising tide raises all ships, you know? Whether you’re a first timer or an old timer, SA GAME JAM is for you!
Although you can chat to the other teams here on itch, you can also connect with everyone from the Make Games SA community on the Discord Server.That's were most of the conversations are happening!
This year, we've enlisted the help of some experienced developers who will host a series of workshops as we get closer to the jam. Look out for these on the MGSA Discord Server.
The competition is national, so feel free to enter from all corners of South Africa. We’re super excited to welcome new game makers to the competition, so ENTER ENTER ENTER!
