We're back with the Wholesome Games Jam, a 48 hour Game Jam starting March 19th 0:00 GMT. This year is extra special as we're celebrating the 3rd anniversary of Wholesome Games! It's a pretty low-key jam without competition element so you can focus on having fun and making new connections.

πŸ§‘β€πŸ€β€πŸ§‘ HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?

  • Anyone can join of any skill level as long as you're a member of the  Wholesome Games Discord server
  • Get yourself a πŸ― Game jam role in our #🌈label-me-this channel to get access to ALL of the game jam channels, including ones that will help you find a team.
  • Read the #jam-info channel thoroughly
  • You can join in teams of 2-6 people. No solo teams are allowed.
  • There are other ways to participate if you have little time or this is your first jam! You can read all about that in our #jam-info channel
  • You can press the "Join jam" button above to let us know you're interested in joining, but it's not mandatory. 
  • Every team must be registered through our #teams channel on the Discord server.

πŸ—³οΈ WHAT ABOUT THE THEME?

These last two years were not easy to any of us, and it was relief for many to have this little internet corner to chill in. It was lovely to see it grow, to be a part of the home of wonderful individuals. It hasn't always been just great times but it is with supporting each other we carry through! With that in mind, the theme choice was an obvious one: COMMUNITY. Now lets get those brain engines started!
