Vulcanalia

Vulcan is the Roman god of volcanoes, metal-working, and the forge. Let us forge games in his honor!

Forge a game themed around Vulcan or one of his divine duties

Originally conceived as a jam to highlight gamedev talent in Birmingham, US (known for its cast-iron colossus of Vulcan) this jam is open to anyone anywhere that wants to pay homage to the lord of the forge. You can read more about the mythology of Vulcan here.  Your game's theme can be based around any of these Vulcan things:

  • A story connected to the Vulcan mythology
  • forges
  • metal-working
  • volcanoes
  • fire

This year, the jam begins on Vulcanalia (August 23rd) and runs until the end of August.

Make sure you tweet your progress using tag #VulcanJam
