Join us on Discord to discuss the jam and have a good time.
Remember to sign up for the jam at Eventbrite!
This year's poster takes inspiration from the Danish seasonal event, Fastelavn.
We're all here to have a good time but remember common courtesy.
The game type is completely open!
The game genre is completely open!
The theme is a source of inspiration but not a strict requirement.
The game jam is a physical event.
You need to be at the venue in Viborg to participate in the game jam.
The address is: Arsenalet, Kasernevej 8-10, Viborg 8800 DK. Link to Google Maps.
Additionally, we provide:
You need to bring:
Can I combine genres?
Yes! You have absolute creative freedom.
Can I make games unrelated to the theme?
Can I make board games and card games?
Yes! Traditional games are just as awesome as digital games.
What code language are we using during the jam?
You and your team are free to use any Game Engine and any Coding Language!
Do I need a team?
You don't need to be in a team. If you want to work on your own idea as a lone wolf, feel free to do so.
Is the theme a limitation? Do I need to interpret it literally?
Not at all! The theme is a source of inspiration. You will in fact score more points if you think of unique ways to interpret the theme.
I did not finish the game. Should I submit it?
Absolutely! During the game jam, we're focusing on making game prototypes. A solid prototype can still be the most enjoyable game, and it's worth showcasing to get any sort of feedback for you to evolve and learn. EVEN an amazing pitch for a game concept is accepted!
I can't make music. How can I get cool background music for my game?
If you're lucky, you might team up with a composer who can make an original sound for your game! Otherwise, there's plenty of royalty- and license-free music on the internet. Simply just go to Google and search for "royalty-free music", "free music for commercial use" or "license-free music".
What about assets, tools, and engines? Where can I find them? Can I use any tools?
Check out our list of tools in our Discord in #resources. We've provided just a few examples. But anything is allowed. Games aren't limited to digital software.
Can I make a multiplayer game?
Of course! Multiplayer games are also fun! One of the major aspects of a game is its ability to create a gather-point for relations to emerge. Multiplayer games especially so. Just remember you only have 48 hours, so remember the scope of the game.
Do I have to sleep over?
No, if you can figure out your own sleeping-quarters during the game jam in Viborg, then you're welcome to stay wherever you want. We provide a sleeping-spot for those who need a space! :)
Where can I ask more questions?
Ask away in our Discord channel. Write an @Admin any time.
