What is the Weekly Game Jam?
The Weekly Game Jam is a weekly game-making challenge. Make a game or prototype in a week - stress free. Whether you decide to jam with friends or go rogue, remember to have fun.
Use the weekly theme as inspiration and start building.
How does it feel to finish a game in 7 days?
Like dolphins riding a Nutella rainbow. Keeping your game idea simple will help you to succeed. Remember, you will learn from each weekly experience.
Is this a competition?
Only on weeks that end with zero. Every 10 weeks we allow game ratings and vote for a winner to be featured here on the website.
Other weeks, we focus on non-competitive creating. So... no pressure!
