Location Game Jam

When?

We start on Tuesday 14/02 9 AM and end on Thursday 16/02 - closing event to start 3 PM

For the students DAE there is an extra showcase event on Friday @ The Level

How do I join? 

Join on itch.io AND make sure to register here for this game jam as well! 

It is required to fill in this form, as we need an idea of how much food and "sleeping" places we need to accommodate :)

Try to form groups in advance, you'll get the opportunity to join a group if you haven't found one yet, but it's easier if you already have one. We recommend groups to be no larger than 6 people.

Theme?

At the start of the jam, the theme will be announced.

Submission rules...

  • The theme must be incorporated
  • No pre-existing projects allowed
  • You can use whatever software/game engine you want
  • You can choose whatever platform you want (even VR is allowed, but make sure you have your own hardware)
  • You must participate physically, no online only entries

A grand showcase moment!

At 3 PM on Thursday the 16th, we will host a grand showcase where all teams will receive the opportunity to present their games using a 2min pre-recorded gameplay video in front of a jury made up of some of the most influential people from the Belgian game dev scene. Your time to shine! 

Yes, there will be a prize pool.

As a reward for all your hard work and creativity, we are glad to announce that we will have a prize pool! You have two opportunities to win: a jury reward and a community reward. 

Jury reward: During the showcase, you will receive a score from the jury members. The team that has the highest score wins the jury prize! Prizes are to be announced. 

Community reward: Your games will be available to play online. The team with the highest score in either (or all) of the categories wins the community prize! Prizes are to be announced. 

Join The Indie Brewery Discord!

We have an awesome creative game dev community on Discord, so if you're looking for a great place to hang out and chat with like-minded people, this is the place to look. 


Some Winning Tips...

In our experience, here is what you need to do if you want to win one of the top spots:

  • Make your game easy to understand for new players. This is a common trap many game jam games fall into. Start thinking about your tutorial or how you want to teach mechanics right from the beginning!
  • Usually, it's a good idea to make your game relatively easy to win. People spend roughly five to fifteen minutes on each game. In most cases, they won't have enough time to reach a super high level of mastery. Keep that in mind when balancing the difficulty.
  • Quality over quantity. Keep your game super short and simple! This is even more important in this jam, as simplicity (meaning you do much with little) is one of the main ranking factors. Every tiny bit of extra polish can make your game stand out!

Take a risk. The winning games are usually brave enough to try something completely new or out of the ordinary.
