All hail Wingardium LevioJam!, the new incarnation of Alakajam!

After launching this website back in July 2017, we quickly realized its name wasn't completely effective, as a lot of people didn't get the pun between "game jam" and the "Alakazam!" magic word (which it definitely is). Because of that, we have finally grown tired of the Alakajam! name and decided to retire it.

After long debates and dozens of rejected names, including "Code Prog-jammers", "World Jam-pionship", and "OSWALD" ("OSWALD Surely Wasn't Another Ludum Dare"), we unanimously praised the discovery of the awesome pun: Wingardium LevioJam!

Sure, we feared for a moment that the name was a bit long and forced, but then we remembered this great quote:

"Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself" - Albus Dumbledore

Inspired by these great words, we have eventually decided to stick with the name and launched this new version of the site. We hope you'll like it!

UPDATE: Our lawyers suggested we retire the "Wingardium LevioJam!" theme & name, due to similarities with an existing license. It only lasted for April 1st, too bad!

Alakajam! is a young community gathering game development enthusiasts from all backgrounds. We host a series of informal events, that give you a chance to both make games and get people to play them:

  • Alakajam! competitions, taking place over a week-end, three times a year. Start/end times are suited to Europan timezones.
  • Kajam! month-long events, inviting people to learn and experiment around a specific topic.
  • And finally Feedback Fortnights, to show off personal projects made outside of game jams.

Sounds exciting? Come join us! You can start by making an account in a few clicks, then check the home page or the Events to learn the date of the next jam. Feel free to introduce yourself with a blog post!

If you want to give a hand to this brand new community: spread the word, give feedback and if you're a coder, why not join us on Github!
