The tournament is over!

We hope you all had fun (we certainly did). So a huge thank you to the brilliant people who created the games, and as ever, congratulations to the very talented winner, @M2tias, the runners up, and, well, all you magical chums who joined in too.

So what now? I'm hungry for more…

Starting tomorrow we have the 7th Kajam, hosted by our very own @voxel! Then from 31 May-2 June we have the 6th iteration of our flagship event, the 48h jam known as the 6th Alakajam! Join us all tomorrow for more gaming magic :).

The 3rd AKJ Tournament begins!

It's time for the 3rd AKJ Tournament, folks! From the 15th to 31st of March 2019 we'll be playing and competing at six games which have been submitted to jams on this very site. You can see the tournament rules here.

Quiet! Gimme the games!

Below you'll find the games we'll be playing this month, along with their owner and the jam they were entered for. We have some real gems this time, so make sure you don't miss out and play them all! :)

For the next couple weeks, 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 last Alakajam! events) 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 March 31st, the player with the most points wins the tournament! Check the 2nd 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!

The 3rd AKJ Tournament is nearly upon us!

And you know what that means, right? Correct! We need some games to play. Have you recently made a game you think would be a good fit for the tournament? Then submit it here by 14th March!

If your game has a score which people can screenshot, it's elligible!

In March will be held the 3rd AKJ Tournament, where the community is invited like last time to play & compete on existing jam games! The event will be run right after the end of the 5th Alakajam, around March 10th.
