This jam is now over. It ran from 2018-09-22 16:00:00 to 2018-09-23 04:00:00.

Get ready for the most extreme Shovel Jam yet! We will create, market, and release a game in one day!!! 

We only get 12 hours this round so things will be done a little differently. Instead of having people come in with their unfinished projects, we will have a scoped game idea already prepared for the jam. 

No experience needed! Game jams are the fastest way to learn to make games to make use of that. It is important to get the game done but it is more important to get something out of the jam so try to take on roles in places you want to improve at or in things you have never done before. ...we will make the game as scale-able as possible.

The marketing portion of the jam is still being planned, expect an update soon. If you would like to take part in choosing the game we will make, choosing the legal issue we will cover, or plan on working remotely please join the chat on discord!

This event is completely FREE and there will be light drinks and snacks(donuts!) provided but you'll have to handle your own meals.  Huge thanks to Clark Planetarium for giving us some awesome event space! 

*This game will not be monetized however, you own all the  assets you create... you just give shovel jam permission to use them in the game, and to use them in marketing stuff.

**There is a 30 person limit for anyone that wants to attend the event in person so sign up quick! If you are planning on working remotely don't worry about the limit but please don't press join until after the jam starts but feel free to hop into the discord at any time.
