DreamHack is the world’s premier gaming lifestyle festival… so why wouldn’t there be a cool game jam to get the party started? Game Jolt is here to bring all you gorgeous devs a fun way to participate in the event before we kick off in November.
The theme will be announced at the start of the 9½ day jam, so be ready for anything. If you’re interested in getting involved, your first step will be to create a Game Jolt account before the jam begins if you don’t already have one. You’ll need one to enter your game when you’ve finished (see entry form linked at the bottom of the page for full details on how to submit).
And, if you’re up for it, you can livestream your game development! It’s a fun way to share your work with the community and definitely inspiring to other devs. Plus, it’s pretty cool to know your friends and family are watching to root for you.
Game Jolt and DreamHack staff are going to pick the 5 winners together. We’ll be putting overall quality at the top of our list, so that means fun and functional—and that you followed the rules, but there aren’t many!
Jam Starts: Friday, October 26th at 12:00AM (Eastern Time)
Jam Ends: Sunday, November 4th at 11:59PM (Eastern Time)
First place winner will receive $1,000 USD
5 finalists (including the first place winner) chosen by Game Jolt and DreamHack judges will be featured on their own individual gaming stations during DreamHack Atlanta and will receive 2 free event tickets to the festival. If you can’t make it out, DreamHack staff will be able to showcase the game on your behalf (no rain check on the tickets).
