To help get us through this period of distancing, we're hosting the first ever fully remote Southampton Game Jam. This is the first of our jams which doesn't require travel to Southampton! We're working hard to ensure it still has the community feel of our regular jams. Everyone is welcome, whether or not you've been to the Southampton Game Jam before.
The Jam will run for two weeks - to give plenty of time (including two full weekends) to pull together your game. Feel free to spend the full two weeks, or just a few hours, making your game, whatever is comfortable for you. It's especially important at this time to maintain your health so make sure you exercise and sleep properly. We'll announce a detailed schedule closer to the start.
Join us on the discord to form a team, discuss your ideas, and share in-progress screenshots/videos/etc.
