Welcome! Introduce yourself.

Hey all, I am a new game developer who has been using the Unity Learn website over the past 3 months now to learn how to use the editor and c#. Last month I participated in the Unity May beginner showcase and made my first personal project from start to finish for it in about 5 days.  I like to make things, code things, do all sorts of things

Developer

Welcome!

hi I'm Rafa. I've been participating in the weekly game jam since like week 18. Sad to see the server go but looking forward to the five year anniversary. 

Developer

Hey Rafa, it's been a while. Nice to see you here!

I'm always around... Lurking... 👀

Hi all.

I'm a recent newcomer to the jam and have been doing it since 203. I'm trying to get into the habit of making something every week. Weekly Game Jam seemed like the perfect fit 🙂

While I'm sure other jams will pull me away from time to time, I intend to stick around once the Discord server shuts down.

I've shipped games using GameMaker Studio 2 and Unity. I've been committed to Unity for 6+ months and have more recently been using it every day.

Though I have some 3D experience, my style is typically flat and minimalistic. I'm hopeful that my work comes across as charming and stylistically consistent. I lean on the Creative Commons for additional art, music and so on. For SFX I typically generate it in tools like BFXR.

I like your work  :) it's very juicy in my opinion

Thanks 😊

Hello from the other side,  I use love and construct for making games. Been busy lately but will definitely join a few more jams when my schedule clears up.

Developer

Welcome Alligrater. I just played Pitfall. It was short and sweet. Nice art too.

My summer vacation just started and I think that game jams might be a great way to spend my time for like two months. I hope I am going to have fun doing some game jams and maybe meet some nice people in the community.

Developer

Happy vacation, welcome!

Developer

Hey everyone,
I'm artist for Nekomatata Games and an admin for WGJ. Can't wait to get to know you all here through the jams and through your games.
Peace!

Hi everyone. More of a lurker but am keen to do a few upcoming jams to get my coding feet wet again after a bit of a sabbatical.

Looking forward to seeing your games.

Developer

Hello!
I'm admin for WGJ and part of Nekomatata Games. I've been jamming from time to time in the past, more rarely these days. I'll be checking the games and community forum.
Hope everybody will have fun!

Hi all! 👋🏻

My name is Keith, and I’m a professional software engineer. I got into computer science when I was young because I wanted to make games, but my career did not end up leading me to games as time went on. However, I love making games and demos in my spare time, and even participated in two game jams here. I tend to prefer GameMaker Studio 2, though I’ve dabbled in Unreal Engine 4 and Unity.

I hope to be able to participate more, and hope to see y’all around here! 😀

sup. im niru. i go by maxracer in the discord. i enjoy making 2d 1 level submissions to the jams.

hi all, im phoenix, i like to program games

Hey everyone my name is Miguel "Migcreatesgames" the first public game I developed was for a WGJ about 2 years ago. I still like to take part in some of the themes when I am not focusing on my main projects

Hey all! I haven't joined WGJ in a long time but some of my first games were made for it, and I'm sad to see the discord server getting shut down, though I understand the reasons behind it. 


Would it be possible to at least keep the theme announcement channel/bot up and running? Is there a way to see a list of previous themes outside the discord?  


I hope I can join another jam soon. Best of luck to everyone!

Hey. I'm working as a Unity programmer but I want to try and get into doing game jams more consistently to try and broaden my skills a bit. Probably won't be joining WGJ every week but hoping to try and take part when there's time. Thanks

Hello! I'm a composer who's participated in a few since week 150. Take a look at my soundcloud to see the music I make! https://soundcloud.com/baharto

I also have some game dev/programming experience. Here's some projects I've made music for and/or programmed https://baharto.itch.io/

Looking forward to participating in future jams!

Hello, I am a Godot programmer that used to participate in these jams a long time ago. In fact, this was the first game jam I ever participated in. It has been around a year since I joined a WGJ, and want to join it again once more. Though I am not really good as a game dev, I will give my best effort.

I am a bit surprised by this new format, but hopefully I will get used to it. Looking forward to future jams!

Hey all! I've been composing music and sounds since 2018 and I've been actively working on game jams since January including WGJ,  Ludum Dare,  Finally Finish Something,   Firith Studio,   and Global Game Jam!

I make all sorts of music, electronic, orchestral, ambient, experimental...whatever  works for the game I'm composing for! If anybody is interested in teaming up for the next jam, just shoot me a message! You can listen to my past compositions here:

Hello, I'm kind of new to making games and stuff but I've been using Construct 3 for awhile so I thought a game jam would be a challenge, my main goal is to get better at pixel art. 

Hello. Week 97 "Veteran" that made only 3 games for WGJ so far but planning to go for 4 this time after the general break from game development

Developer

Welcome back!

Hi. I’m a programmer. I’m trying my hand at game jams again. My goal is to just have something submitted. I never finish my games. I just get so caught up in the details.

Developer

Hey, welcome and good luck finishing up this time. Deciding what the main goal of the game is and focusing on that has helped me. Maybe it can work for you too. Things like game menu and extra features and polish always come last since they can be distracting. Again, good luck and have fun.

hey whats your discord

Steve#9465

Hello folks!

Anchorlight here. I’m a novice composer, C# programmer, and 3D artist making games while finishing university. I have entered WGJ a number of times (though most of those didn’t reach the finish line), and am currently working on fleshed-out prototypes of two former WGJ ideas. I am also working on a retro-FPS as well as a stealth game based on a former WGJ concept.

I have experience with Unity, Blender, GIMP, and Ableton.

(1 edit)

Hi all, I'am 3D artist and noob game dev in Unity (i'm french , my english is not good). I want to participate in the weekly jam 208 with 3 friends. When the jam begin?

hey i am a pixel art maker and looking for a team for a scp crawl type game

Hello, im fairly new to 3D art, im 17. I did do  computation called skills USA and got first place this year. Im looking to maybe brodern my horizons and get better at the 3D art side of things. so yeah that's me 

(1 edit)

I'm the chromian, I really prefer discord to forums because it's faster paced and the entire reason I do game jams is because I have no patience. I'm mostly a programmer and musician and I use unity. I did some weekly game jams last year (171 and 172) and now I'm back.

Hi! I am a 3D modeler and C# Unity programmer. But I don't make music at all. Has been in game development for 1.5 years. Most of my games on itch.io are made for WGJ and I'm happy about that. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to take part because of the main work, but I try.

Hi I'm Leonard, participated in week 199 and really enjoyed what I made. Looking forward to participating every so often.
I use Godot, am a programmer, but do pixel art and music also.

Hi! I'm Tangent. Programming's my day job but it's dull business stuff; I've done the Ludum Jam a few times in past years but wanted to try something with a more forgiving timeframe.

Trying Unity this time, in part to try and suppress the impulse to reinvent the wheel instead of letting the engine handle it, in part because I'm working with a friend who has used Unity before.

Hey everyone, total newcomer here - found out about WGJ about 30 mins ago and instantly wanted to get involved when I saw this week's theme. Trying to break out of a funk from taking on a solo project that's a bit too ambitious for my current capabilities and levels of free time.

Really excited to give this a go, so far I've only made simple android puzzle/arcade games and I usually spend too long on projects. Fingers crossed this will help push me to be more agile while learning new things in the process!

Looking forward to seeing what everyone submits!

Follow-up: I did it! I actually did it!

Over the moon that I managed to get something published in time (particularly trying to wrestle with getting Unity WebGL builds to work!)

Good luck everyone!

Hi everyone, Im a Sound Designer / Music Composer based in London and I would love to get involved on some projects / Jams in the future. Here is a little about my work : https://expansom.wixsite.com/my-site-5

(1 edit)

PixelCat - aka Demeggy, UK based, entered a couple of times in the past. Rarely get to dev much these days due to adult life, so it's nice to find a weekly theme that resonates, very nearly couldn't find the place as I was so used to it being over on Discord :)

Hello there! :D 

I am a new developer and I really and I mean REALLY want to see how it is in a game jam!

Here  are some info abt me:

nothing :)

Hello! My name is Chloe and I've wanted to make games all my life and I just can't seem to actually follow through. Well.. time to just jump in and force a deadline on myself to learn and get better! I'm a software developer who's been placed in big data... yay lol. Looking forward to working alongside and getting to know you all here! ^-^

Hey, I'm not so new, I've taken part in 2 WGJ, but a while back using Unity. Now I'm trying to actually complete a game jam using Godot. I've played around with Godot before, I'm just not so good at putting together a whole game for some reason. 

Hi guys, I haven't been developing games for a while and now I want to come back and be active again. I want to team up and possibly make new friends!

Hey! At the moment I am 16 years old. I signed up for itch.io a long time ago, but only now decided to create simple games, so I joined this jam. Of course, I don't think my first creations will be good, but I will try to learn. Thank you all for reading my message!

P. S: My English is bad because it is not my native language, so forgive me if you misunderstood somewhere :(

Hello I haven't participated the WGJ for long time. I have four games submitted around 2019 and try to come back again.

Hi there. I have done lots of weekly game jams before. Maybe I'll do another one some day :)

Hello I'm a rookie artist but keep learning everyday. I do pixelart, specially 8x8-32x32. Heres a sample of a game I'm currently working on!

Hello, I'm a relatively new game developer. I've been trying to finish a game for a long time, but I can never get the motivation to bring a project to an end, and I'm hoping this game jam can help me. Wish me good luck! :D

Im PranshuTG in a coder using godot!

Hello! Going to try and make some games. I'm trying to figure out the perfect JAM-time for me, and this one seems ideal. Hope everyone has fun!

Hey I’m a games writer and first time jammer looking for a team to make something awesome!

Hello! I'm a musician/composer/sound designer looking to collaborate and making something fun with people in this jam. Looking forward to it :) 

Hey everybody! I'm Will Bishop (GroovinApple)! I did the sound design on wallace.dog and am currently doing sound design for the Steam game Ari's Journey. I've never done a Game Jam before, but thought it would be a fun way to meet more people and work on more projects! I am happy to integrate in several different engines, both natively and with middleware. Feel free to message me on Discord at GroovinApple#6799 if you wanna collaborate or just chat!

Hi all, I go by Squirrel. I'm a software developer mainly, I also do digital art & animation as a hobby and occasional commission. I've wanted to get into game dev for a while, I've been learning Godot and have a lot of unfinished projects (mainly 2D). I'm kind of a recluse so I figured game jams would be a good way to maybe meet some people, learn how to actually finish something, and see how other people go about game dev beyond just the coding side of things.

Hey y'all! I'm Yoni, I'm a music composer, sound designer and recording engineer by trade but I've always been interested in making video games. Most of my work is in the music side of things but I'm open to anything audio related you might need. I'm looking forward to jamming with you guys! Here's some of my stuff for you to check out: https://soundcloud.com/yoni-kessler-872213732/sets/composing/s-5XFgnkdUny0?si=6b...

Hello.  I am a game programmer who use Unity, Monogame & Love2D to make games. I made only one game for WGJ Week 166 ( I am still working on it when I feel it). I will probably do more games for WGJ because I need to work on new projects ^^".

Hello. I am a 2D artist and C# / javascript programmer and a depressive trans girl who likes strategy games, cartoons, cute stuff, military machines and anarchism.

Hey, my name is Nick and I am joining this game jam to gain more experience in the game development community!

Hi, I'm a programmer and i want to participate to this game jam. I made a game previously with a team on this game jam, and you can see it on my itch.io profile. I'm looking for teaming up, so come ask me !

Hi there! I'm an aspiring game developer and this is the first game jam that I'll be taking! I took the Unity Pathway course and I kinda stopped cause it felt repetitive, so why not join a jam? Anyway, looking forward to it! Once I get enough experience, I'll join a group here and there to learn new things

hello, first time joining this jam, so far made ... 2 games ... 

Hellooo, I'm just getting started in game development. I'm an established recording artist & music producer, I'm also a digital artist and a playwright and I love the fact that making games allows me to put all my skills together :)
Hoping to be able to finish and submit something! This would be my first jam

i am ryan. i have participated in other jams and i like doing them, so this seems like a good fit for me. and i love the fact that the community is on itch and not on discord. i hate discord.

Hello everyone. I'm a programmer learning how to make games and trying to build up my work portfolio. Here's hoping that this can be a fun game jam with a little stress as possible.

Greetings. I used to make personal projects with Clickteam engines about 10 years ago, but fell out of habit. I also enjoy making pixel art. Hoping this game jam can get me back into practice.

I'm a relatively new game designer and I'm learning Unreal and getting back into Unity to sharpen my skills.  I come from a film/tv background and I'm looking to bridge my experiences and skills in storytelling in the expressive and expanding medium.  I look forward to all that I will learn doing my first game jam, and look forward to meeting new people in the field.

Hey, I'm a beginner game developer using Godot and Gdevelop 5

Hi all, I found this game jam on itch’s calendar, and decided to take a whack at it. When I saw the theme for week 238, “UFO”, I moved my programming to-do list around and worked on a 2D engine for a spaceship RTS.

I don’t think I can do every week, that sounds like… a lot. I really only got a few hours in this week, but it was nice to have something kicking around in my head when I had a free spot. I’ll stay tuned.

Hi all! I'm a junior Angular and hobbyist Unity developer. I have joined 1 jam in the past but didn't finish it. I came back to make up for it and learn how to better work under pressure. I want to increase my soft and hard skills by challenging myself this way, so I joined Week 243 and plan to join regularly from now on. If things go well I'll also release my first commercial game's demo on Steam this month, but I'm not here to promote that.

hello everyone!

My name is Lauren and I’m a game design student from Ireland :) week 242 is my first ever game Jam and I’m excited to share my work with everyone :)  I’ve got one other completed project on my itch page and my current style is making games that capture that “flash game” nostalgia :)

(1 edit)

hello! I'm Sunny and I'm from New Zealand.  i've never made a game before but I've been messing around with RenPy recently. My friend said joining a game jam is a good way to actually get work done because of the time limit and then I can hopefully get advice on how to improve ^^.

Heyoo!!!
I'm Jack from England. I am a hobbyist Unity Developer looking to take part in the upcoming Jam for week 246. I am largely looking to focus on the programming side of things and would therefore love to hear from any of you who would be interested in teaming up. I am happy to chip into any other other areas too though.  I am hoping to take part in more regular Jams moving forward after only participating in one so far. In case anyone is interested, I have a couple of games on my profile however feel free to check out my portfolio too: Jack Hancock Portfolio (jackalgame.github.io).

Hi, name is Charles M. Lamb, I make code, 3D . . 

Hey all :) Predominantly a composer and audio implementer but happy to work on sound design alongside for smaller teams. 

Examples here - hrrrm.it. 

Would love to meet some people and work on more jams (only done one so far but we came first and was a lot of fun!).

Nice to meet you all.

Will (Hrrrmit)

Hello. My name is Luis Zeno. I am a graduate of Full Sail  University but I am also looking to be able to create more games and game more experience. I do have experience with Unity, C# scripting, Unreal, and designing, thou my weakness do center around remembering coding, functions, and time management. Either way I am eager and tenacious when it comes to game designing and hoping this would be a great way to bounce back and create something extraordinary.

I am also a Full Sail graduate! Nice to meet you!

Great to meet you. I'm kinda stuck with my game and seem I am having trouble with getting the images so far. *Sweatdrop*

Hi all!

I am a Game Designer with some programming knowledge. I love shooting games of all kinds and currently I am fixated on Rocket League, Knightfall, and Overwatch. I am still learning though I have a Masters in game design. I would love to be able to learn and grow together! 

Hi, my name is Azamat and I am an aspiring video game developer. We came to this game jam to show our skills and learn from others, and of course to have fun.

Hey everyone, I am Saroj, a fellow Game Developer. I'm trying to improve upon game dev, and doing game jams weekly seems a great idea. Thanks

(1 edit)

Hi Everyone!!

I am a composer but mostly in the realms of electronic music. I am mostly familiar with genres such as ambient, downtempo, idm, electronica. 

Week 252 is going to be my first weekly game jam if I ever get to work with any of you guys. I love pixel art side scroller adventure games and I am always excited to work on these sort of games. 

Would love to meet with all you amazing people on these weekly game jams and I am really looking forward to work with you all on any of your game.

Hi there! I'm a trans gal in the US who makes tabletop games as a hobby! There's something so magical about puzzling together what makes something fun, and how quickly something fun can be made when inspiration hits (my first entry into a jam here, #252 lol, I got done during a friend's 4-hour jam)!

I originally made video games with Flash back in the day, and LOVED Ludum Dare. It feels like I can't ever get anything done without pressure from a jam lol, so I definitely plan to enter more of these in the future! Thanks so much for hosting them :D

Hi! I'm starter pixel artict. I'm looking for a proggramer. I want to work with Unity. I know some C#. My nickname in discord Egor Brag#6422

What up? I'm James and I've been lurking around for the past year or so. I'm a fairly new Unity and C# programmer and I've only really made like 1 or 2 projects. My goal is to eventually get into the video game industry and make a living off of making games and having fun doing it.

Hey everyone, I'm Heddy, i'm 23 and i'm from France. I'm an IT (network, systems and cybersecurity) student in apprenticeship.

I team up with Mathias, my best-friend, who is a 2D artist and game designer.

We produced a game  (here) in 2018 for a weekly Game Jam.

We are looking for devs to joins us on our long term project (currently working on a 2D cartoony - turn by turn - multi-platform game), or to join you on cool projects / game jams.


You can contact me on discord : Heddy Pablito#3017

just an quastion? can you use scratch?

Hi! I am just a random guy studying Unity and Programming in general for around 2 years now. I primarily use C#, although I know a tiny bit about Python, I prefer the former, to be honest...

Also trying to juggle music (pls no talk about my bad music), sound design, and pixel art in with the programming bit... But my specialty is definitely programming! 

Hi! I am Lucas, i program in gdScript and Pythonl and Godot is my choice of engine :)

Hi!

Hello I'm Jacen, been learning Unity off and on for years now, I've participated in a couple of past jams, but I wanna try and make it a more regular thing! I also know a bit about art, most prominently pixel art.

Hi, I want to test my unity programming and game dev knowledge skills :D

Hi, how long have you been using Unity?

Around 3 years, mostly teaching the basics of unity to college students in Mexico

Hey guys, I'm Nano and I want to develop my programming and creative skills some more. I've always been interested in game dev so I'm trying to dabble in that a little bit recently. Hopefully I can show a finished product soon !

Hello, I’m a developer from China, I don’t have a team, and I’m not sure if my level and experience are outside the scope of a novice, so I want to make a game in the allotted time to prove my level. Then I use the Unity engine, I like pixel art and low-poly art, I want to find some of the same developers to work with, what should I do?

Hi, i'm new to making games and I want to start off strong by entering in the weekly game jam 265. I want to learn and be able to pursue my new hobby with no hesitation.

Hello all! I’m an absolute beginner at game dev, but have been working as a software engineer for the last 6 years. I have a background as an artist, so Blender/3D modeling is also something I’m really interested in. This will be my first game jam along with two friends, and we’ll be using Rust/Bevy to try and learn some new stuff!

Heya, been a year or so since I participated in a jam, thought i'd try again.

(1 edit)

Hi My name is Rafael. I did my first weekly game jam 4 years ago. Now I'm publishing my first commercial game on all consoles. 

In my 4th or 5th week of doing weekly game jam I made a small game about a unicorn which I later expanded into a full game that will now be available world wide on September 16th. 

I wanted to reintroduce myself and let people know what a great community this is. I'm so grateful for weekly game jam and am excited to start jumping back in from week to week. 

I work primarily in Gamemaker and unity. I program and do both 2D and 3D. Audio is my biggest weakness but I can manage it if I have to. I love to collaborate. 

Cheers and best of luck to you all

Developer

Hey, welcome back! And congrats on releasing Unichrome :D

Hi I'm Kyle. I've been trying to make my own games outside jams. I wanted to join this one to create 2d art. I am looking for a team to join!

My profile has my in progess game and a link to my instagram which has a taste of my art work. I am UK based so in BST timezone.

Hey Kyle, Im looking for a 2d artist for the next jam, interested? MSG me on discord Kit Von Snookerz#4967

Hi, I'm new to coding/game making and I've been looking for a game jam and this looks cool

Hello! Im looking to work weekly or bi weekly with on game jams specifically this jam. My only requirements are time zones and languages, they must be EST, CST, PST, or MST, Americas time zone only and English fluency! I'm starting down a new path developing my ability to develop games with ONLY C++. I'm looking to use https://www.sfml-dev.org/ to develop games right now and branching out to different C++ libraries and programs.

Some extra stuff I'm good at:

  • Devops: so deployment of applications to cloud or on-prem platforms and creating repos for integration
  • Bass guitar: I love playing my bass id love to put some music in a game but its not a priority

Check out my profile for more about me, it includes my twitter and github.

Hi guys, I'm Greg, I'm a sound designer and composer. I've mainly worked on short films creating music and sound effects but I am very keen to get into the world of game development. Please get in contact if you're in need of sound!
