Give back to open source projects during the month of October! This year, we’re encouraging more than code contributions: writing, design, advocacy, and financial donations.
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!
