ScoreSpace x Alakajam! / June 19-22 0

Wan 10 days ago

The game jam multiverse is collapsing! In June, Alakajam! and ScoreSpace will join forces to offer you a special event.

For 72 hours, from Friday to Monday, all entrants are invited to make a game. Teams or solo devs, beginners and professionals are all welcome to participate. On top of that, in a unique twist to game jams, ScoreSpace brings in the idea of making streamers compete on your jam games.

Overview

Detailed schedule

Dates Phase Description
June 5, 7pm UTC Theme submission and voting Submit theme ideas for the jam and vote for all other ideas. Submissions will be eliminated as the week progresses, until only the best remain…
June 12, 7pm UTC Theme shortlist The best 10 themes are revealed. Rank them by order of preference in this final phase of theme voting.
June 19, 6pm UTC Countdown stream An official stream is held on Twitch to launch the event! (Host to be announced)
June 19, 7pm UTC THE JAM!!! Start making a game solo or as a team, and simply submit it before the deadline!
June 22, 7pm UTC End of jam The game development competition ends here, exactly 72 hours after the start time. Submissions will remain open for an additional hour after the deadline. An alternate unranked jam will be held simultaneously for those who want to join and exchange feedback, but not compete.
June 27, 7pm UTC Jam results After five days during which all entrants play, rate and comment on other peoples games… The results are released and the 3 awards will be given! "Developer's Solo Choice & Developer's Team Choice" (highest Overall rated entries), plus a special "Streamer's Choice" (picked by the event streamers) will be kept for the next phase.

An update on the next Alakajam! 4

Wan 24 days ago

You may be wondering why little has been announced since the last AKJ Tournament. Behind the scenes, we are actually preparing the 9th Alakajam! to be a special event, and could not announce too much before it is set in stone.

Things are taking shape, so I can tell that the June event should see Alakajam! team up with another community of gamedev enthusiasts :) The two communities make a nice match, as our respective twists to the game jam formula can blend together nicely and make the whole event bigger and more fun. Expect the detailed schedule of this special jam to be announced in the next few days, when all details are finetuned!
