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
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.
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! 😀
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!
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:
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.
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.
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 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!
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! 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 :(
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...
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
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'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.
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.
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 :)
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 ^^.
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).
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.
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 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!
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.
Hello! I am a musician who would love to help with your game. I live in the 8bit/rock world and can manage most styles of music. I've been in plenty of game jams prior, but this would be my first WGJ

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
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.
Ay, whats popping. Purple Flourish here. I know a decent bit of C# and pixel art. I mainly use Unity thought I did help out on some unreal projects. Mainly here to develop my skills as a game dev and 2D artist as well as making new connections within the industry! I'm mainly focused on 2d games but I can always adapt to 3d projects.
Currently on the lookout for other programmers/pixel artist to make a game jam team.
Dm me on twitter or add me on discord if you're interested! : Whom???#3153
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
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!
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?
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!
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
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.
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:
Check out my profile for more about me, it includes my twitter and github.
Hi everyone! I'm Albe and I'm a musician from Argentina. Been making music for 7 years, despite not having any experience in VGM composing.
