For Good First Issue is a curated list of open source projects that are also digital public goods and need the help of developers.
Game Off, our annual game jam (a hackathon for building games) returns this weekend. Participants will be given a secret theme on November 1 and will have the entire month of November to build a game based on their interpretation of the theme. This is a great excuse to build your first game, learn a new language, game engine, or other framework. Alternatively, this could be a way to kick off a new fun weekend/evening project!
The use of free and open source tools is encouraged, but it is not a requirement. Previous years’ entries have included Unreal Engine, Unity, PICO-8. Heck, we’ve even had Commodore 64 and NES games submitted!
