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!
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:
