Game Jam with Game Dev!
A game jam is a competitive race against the clock to formulate a complete video game in less than 36 hours. You, as an individual or as a team, must submit a complete video game by 11:59PM Central Time on Saturday night. The only catch is that each submission must adhere to some theme. The contest is divided into two main categories, the hard-core competition and the casual competition.
The casual competition allows each team to use whatever assets the team can get their hands on, in order to complete their game. This may include: code, sprites, audio, and game engines.
The hardcore competition is the same, except that each team must start from scratch. All art, code, sounds, etc. must be created from ground-zero on up, starting noon on Friday through midnight Saturday. There are exceptions to this rule; you may use software tools to aid you in creating your game. This includes things like game engines, version control software, etc.
The game jam theme will be announced on Friday at noon Central Time. At that time, teams and/or individuals may register. Competitors can start hacking away at their game until 11:00 PM Central Time on Friday, when final submissions will open.
