A game jam for the fediverse community from July 14th to July 23rd! Anyone is welcome to join and all of the main communication about the jam will be taking place within the fediverse

Open sourcing games you make for it is recommended so people in the community can learn from what you did. Youll also be able to show off your game around the fediverse communities while the jams running and after it ends

More information can be found in the linked jam page as well as the button to hit to sign up

Hope you enjoy! :)

    Excellent! I participated in a jam a couple years ago on itch.io, and though I got ahead of myself trying to learn enough Unity and Blender in one week to make a game and though the game didn’t come to fruition… I had a good time and learned a lot.

    Looking forward to doing it again. In moderation.

      That’s most of my experience with jams too. Not actually finishing but at least learning some stuff is basically my expectation going in, these days :D

    What about analog game developers? Can we participate too and upload a PDF of the game? i.e. a ruleset for a short tabletop game or a print-and-play game?

    Looking at the calendar, I’m currently free on those dates so fingers crossed that stays the case.

    Reasonably experienced although very slow Unity dev, very very new Godot dev, sort of becoming ok at the low poly 3d look in Blender although I have no artistic imagination and need to work from reference images mostly. Halfway decent at making UI look acceptable due to background in web design.

    UK timezone. Middle-aged grump. Not a fan of making shooty games if it can be at all avoided.

    If any of that amazing list of skills sounds useful to you, drop me a DM and maybe we can work together 😄

    Any chance we can get a relative link that lets that tab finder thread open via my instance? I’m not sure how to structure the URL for that yet.
