The Theme for the thirteenth Kajam is “Remote Multiplayer”. This relaxed, month-long event will start on the second of June 2023 and last until the second of July. There will be no ratings, but a dedicated gaming session after the jam.
By definition multiplayer means that more than one person can play in the same game environment at the same time. Remote means that you play together over some sort of network and that you don’t have to sit next to each other.
What might sound as a daunting endeavor, is the chance to start thinking about games you usually wouldn’t do on a GameJam. Normally GameJam entries specialize on singleplayer experiences.
However multiplayer games allow for quite some different gameplay and a lot of unique situations for, well, multiple players.
This Kajam is all about multiplayer.
Let’s learn about the technical details of multiplayer games, like network protocols, serialization, buffers, lag prevention and other topics!
And most importantly: Let’s have some fun while creating and playing multiplayer games together!
For this Kajam you can work solo or in a team.
You have four weeks to create and submit your entry, starting on the second of June 2023 and ending on the second of July.
Every Language, Framework or Engine is allowed.
The use of third party assets is allowed. You can even add multiplayer functionality to an already finished game!
Now, start your engines and join this Kajam!
Thank you! The gaming session will happen shortly after the end of the Kajam. A poll for the date will be sent out right after. We will meet online at the alakajam discord server and have fun playing the games which were created during the jam and have a great time together. You are very welcome to join even if you did not take part in the jam.
