The game ratings phase is on 4

Wan¬†‚Äʬ†1 day ago¬†

For the next two weeks, all entrants are be able to give ratings on other games. Take some time to play & rate games, and even better write some feedback about it! Getting constructive feedback is one of the best ways to learn and improve one's game design skills, so please dish it out in buckets. While people who didn't enter the event cannot rate games, they can still post reviews.

By rating & commenting (even on Unranked entries), you will gain Karma that will make your game more visible to others. A high Karma gives you more chances to get ratings yourself and reach the minimum of 8 to be classified. Otherwise, you will not get a final ranking!

On October 4th, at 7pm UTC the final results will be released and the winners crowned :)

Go go go! Play and rate games!

First mockups 1

Wan¬†‚Äʬ†3 days ago¬†

We're going with space battles, and all three themes! Once again this is probably too ambitious for a team of 2, I guess we can't change our habits. Time to sleep now, have a nice jam everyone :)

The themes are MAPS, CHAOS and SHIPS, good luck to all! 2

Wan¬†‚Äʬ†3 days ago¬†

With the theme now revealed, the 10th Alakajam! has started! Good luck to all! And consider supporting high scores for a chance to be entered in the tournament following the jam.

Big thanks to @DanaePlays and @Aurel300 for hosting the awesome launch stream! If you missed it, you can still watch the replay on her Twitch channel. If you like The Elder Scrolls, you will also enjoy Danae's regular streams, where she usually goes exploring the huge world of Morrowind.

Submission times

The end of the jam is depending on whether you pick ranked or unranked. You can create your game page at any time during the jam (and update it any time after it's created):

  • Ranked: September 20th 7:00pm UTC, which means you have 48 hours (+1 hour for late entries to create their page).
  • Unranked: September 21th 10:00pm UTC, which means you have a bit more than 72 hours

Cool things to do during the jam

  • Stream your development process. Join the event as a streamer from your dashboard to let everyone know about it, and possibly get featured on the front page during the week-end! This will also have the side effect to let you enter the streamer competition.
  • Write a blog post: Share your thoughts on the theme, post your progress, images of food or gifs of cute animals. You can also free to use posts for advertising live jam streams.
  • Come relax on the Discord server, tweet about #alakajam and/or follow the alakajam Twitter account.
  • Initialize your game page early!

Everyone have a nice week-end, and see you on the other side ;)

Schedule of the 10th Alakajam! 0

Wan¬†‚Äʬ†28 days ago¬†

The next edition of the Alakajam! event will start on September 18th.

During that week-end, the goal is to making a game, in a weekend. Teams or solo devs, beginners and professionals are all welcome to participate! There are two ways to approach the event:

  • Enter the competitive jam (Solo/Team division) and make your game from nothing, to be ranked against every other contestant.
  • If you prefer a more relaxed setting, maybe even want to work on your current long-term project, the Unranked division will give you an opportunity to get plays and comments, while discarding the restrictive rules.

Browse the final leaderboard

Congratulations to @Birdwards for winning the competition. Watching the streamers play the award winners live was fun, so thank you guys for participating. More than that, all the broadcasts throughout the event (from sharing jam progress to playtesting the games) really added a lot to this ScoreSpace x Alakajam!, so big thanks to all who streamed at any point.

Final words

The ScoreSpace x Alakajam! event now comes to an end, and I'd like to give special thanks to @scorespace (alias "KB") for partnering with us, and the ScoreSpace community as a whole for having us host the event on alakajam.com. We hope you all had fun, whether you're an Alakajam regular, a ScoreSpace veteran or just a random guy joining either for the first time. If you have any feedback, feel free to leave a word on this comment section or on our Discord server.

Our next major event will be the 10th Alakajam! (woo round number), and it will be held during the September 18-20 week-end.

We hope to see you then, have a nice summer!

Heads-up to streamers: tournament links 0

Wan¬†‚Äʬ†2 months ago¬†

  2. Go to your and set up your entry as a streamer

Jam results out! Streamer competition has started 0

Wan¬†‚Äʬ†2 months ago¬†

After 5 days of intense playtesting and rating games, the results of the jam are out! Congratulations to the winners :) We also noticed there's a lot of competition on the games already, with 281 high scores already posted on the entries, before the tournament has even started!

Streamer competition

Speaking of tournament, here are the talented winners of the special awards:

Streamers list | Live high scores | Live leaderboard

Feel free to also join the fun by registering from the event dashboard.
Good luck to the streamers and let's all have fun watching them!

The jam is over! 5 days for ratings & feedback 0

Wan¬†‚Äʬ†2 months ago¬†

Congrats on everyone who entered the jam, we now have a whopping 51 games to discover and rate! High fives to everyone who managed to submit a game, and also to those who could not due to technical issues, time constraints, etc. Making a game in such a short timeframe is always a challenge.

Ratings phase

For the next five days, all of you who submitted an entry or registered as streamers will be able to play, rate and comment on the games for five days. All games supporting high scores will also let you compete and post your best scores with screenshots as proof :)

Please take that chance to actually review, comment on and rate games: the more you contribute to this phase, the higher you karma will be… And having a high karma makes you more visible on the game list. Only games who received enough ratings will be in the final standings.

Special awards and competition

At the end of the ratings phase, three things will happen:

  1. Jam results are released: the final ratings and standings are published, and we'll celebrate the winners of both categories
  2. Special awards winners are announced: the best Solo and Team games supporting high scores will be chosen for the streamer competition, with the third game being elected by streamers themselves!
  3. The streamer competition starts: as soon as the special awards are revealed, a competition starts for 24 hours. It will use the same high score system you can already use, with an additional leaderboard on top attributing points to streamers according to how well they placed. Pick a streamer to root for and expect some cool streams to follow from Saturday to Sunday evening.

See the relevant parts of the rules page for more details on how the awards and competition work.

The theme is CONNECTIONS 5

Wan¬†‚Äʬ†3 months ago¬†

With the theme now revealed, the ScoreSpace x Alakajam! has started! Good luck to all! And don't forget to support high scores for a chance to win the special awards :)

Big thanks to @DanaePlays and @Aurel300 for hosting the awesome launch stream! If you missed it, you can still watch the replay on her Twitch channel. If you like The Elder Scrolls, you will also enjoy Danae's regular streams, where she usually goes exploring the huge world of Morrowind.

Submission times

You can create your game page at any time during the jam…and update it as you want after it's created, so better create it early! Unlike past Alakajam events, all divisions (ranked or unranked) will end at the same time: Monday June 22d, 7:00pm UTC, which means you have 72 hours. A bonus hour is granted for late entries to create their page.

What about high scores?

Supporting high scores is not mandatory. You can safely ignore the streamer competition and enter the jam, and even why not win it. However, this event is a great opportunity to have a number of players compete on your game, and streamers in particular livestreaming it.

In order to qualify for the special awards and the streamer competition, your game must support high scores, in the forms of a visible score that can be captured as a screenshot. You must also toggle two checkboxes on your game submission page: one for enabling high scores, and another one granting us permissions to use the game for the tournament.

See the complete rules (section "Awards and perks") for additional details on how this works.

Cool things to do during the jam

  • Stream your development process. Join the event as a streamer from your dashboard to let everyone know about it, and possibly get featured on the front page during the week-end! This will also have the side effect to let you enter the streamer competition.
  • Write a blog post: Share your thoughts on the theme, post your progress, images of food or gifs of cute animals. You can also free to use posts for advertising live jam streams.
  • Come relax on the Discord server, tweet about #alakajam and/or follow the alakajam Twitter account.
  • Initialize your game page early!

Everyone have a nice week-end, and see you on the other side ;)
