Game over!

We're sad to report that the tournament is now finished. Well done everybody who participated, and special congratulations to the winners, for pwning the rest of us with their awesome skills.

We had a great selection of games, and even though the tournament is over you can still play them! So if you haven't managed to play all (or even any) of the games, you still can (and should)!

What's next, eh?

Get some well-deserved R&R, but make sure you're back in time for the 4th Alakajam! on October 12-14th. It's gonna be magical! :P

Here it is, at last: the 2nd AKJ Tournament!

"Hey, why the late starting date?"

We decided to delay slightly, to allow thorough voting on the 5th Kajam (theme: "Retro"). You can view the results here. Congratulations to the winners, and to everybody who participated!

So, what's this tournament all about?

Between the 9th and 23rd of September 2018 we'll be playing and competing at six games submitted to previous competitions. You can see the rules here.

Enough! What are the games already?!

In September, Alakajam! is not hosting a gamedev event. Instead, we will play jam games! (omg)

How it works

For two weeks, everyone will get to play on a selection of 6 games (mostly from the 3rd Alakajam) on which they'll try to make the highest scores/best times as possible. Using screenshots as proof, players will battle to enter (and remain in) the leaderboards.

Leaderboards points are awarded to all players that enter the top 10 of a game. At the end of the event, on September 23rd, the player with the most points wins the tournament! Check the 1st tournament winners to see the current title holders :)

As usual, there's no prizes to be won other than bragging rights. We're just here to have fun!

Submit your game to the event

Hosts @toasty and @wan will pick games among those that:

  1. Have a game page on Alakajam!
  2. Have enabled the "High scores" option on their page
  3. Haven't been featured in a tournament yet
