Returning for its second year, Open Jam is an 80-hour game jam brought to you by @Jared-Sprague, @mwcz, and opensource.com. Game jams are focused on creating games with a few constraints, like adhering to a limited time frame in creating a game, staying within a theme, or using only a specific technology. Participants are encouraged to use open source game engines, libraries, tools, and Creative Commons assets.
The three top-rated games of Open Jam will have their playable demos featured at the All Things Open conference in Raleigh, NC from October 21–23.
The 2018 events kicks off on October 5, so keep refreshing the itch.io jam page for the theme announcement, tips, tutorials, and competition details. If you can’t participate in Open Jam, don’t worry—Game Off, GitHub’s very own month-long game jam, will return next month.
