Sacramento Developer Collective would like to present our next Game Jam! We are starting a monthly Game Jam with different little twists here and there :)

The purpose of this jam is to create any asset, whether it be art, sound, game tools, etc . Anything that can be used in a game engine!

Submissions must have a minimum of one asset but there is no maximum

If you'd like to create a game anyway, make sure to select the asset or assets you're submitting when you upload to itch.io

Our theme will be announced the day of the jam! :raised_hands:

This game jam will be running for 48 hours (with time for sleep of course) with additional resources being shared through our social media and more! So stay tuned!

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Theme: TBA

If you'd like to create teams, come join us in our Discord ! We have some Game Jam channels for you to work in :) 

After submissions, we'll take a look through everyone's assets and see what everyone made. Once all assets are done, it’ll be just in time for our Dev Days on June 7! That's when you can showcase what you've made with others, along with feedback from your peers 😄We're excited to see what you can make!
