This jam is now over. It ran from 2022-01-01 08:00:00 to 2022-01-01 09:00:00.

Looking for the current Week Sauce jam?
Go here: November 2023

Who has time for game jams, with jobs, families and other commitments getting in the way? Week Sauce tries to make jamming more chill.

  • No set dates. Start whenever.
  • You have 7 days to make something, but they don’t need to be  consecutive days.
  • After that, publish whatever you have, even if it’s not finished! No big deal, it’s just a #weeksauce game after all!
  • Submit as many (or few) times during the month as you want; we will host a new one at the start of every month.
  • Tag any games you submit as #weeksauce, and use that same hashtag in social media so others can find you. You can also  follow @weeksaucegames on Twitter for announcements, or join our Discord server if you want to chat with other participants.

We host a monthly themed jam. The theme is totally optional tho; whatever month you join, you don't need to follow it if you don't feel like it. It is mostly there to help you get the creative juices going if you are out of ideas. Normally we announce the theme for the following month a few days in advance, but you can join either the current month or next month's jam (or both!). You can also check previous themes and entries following the links below. Jam LinkTheme
