Hey everybody. I was browsing through this list, and thought it might help to inspire some other poor soul.

Good luck in your games, everyone!

RIP Galois :'(

Tournament is done! \o/ 2

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 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!

Aaaaand the results are OUT! 1

It's official: the results for the 4th Alakajam! are out!

You can find the results here:

Solo winners | Team winners

Kudos, high fives and back slaps to everyone who participated, in whatever way(s) you chose to. We hope you had a blast!

Now, we've got a teeny tiny little survey which you can fill in—just some feedback on how things are running, whether you'd like to get involved, and asking your opinion on some important future decisions.

OK, what's next?

November Challenge: November 2018
What's a November Challenge? Good question! Ever wondered what happens after you've made a game? @DaFluffyPotato will host this event taking us through marketing & releasing a game to the outside world, and maybe even making a profit :o

Behind the Scenes

Many thanks to the awesome @Tipyx for hosting this jam, and his little minions for helping out with maintenance and streaming. Also many thanks to those of you who jammed, played, streamed and/or speedran(runned?), as well as you, the community, for making this what it is.

We hope to see you soon! :)

The tournament is over! 3

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

2nd AKJ Tournament belatedly begins! 3

toasty • 3 years ago on 2nd AKJ Tournament 

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?!
