Game Off is an annual game jam, where participants spend the month of November creating games based on a secret theme. Participate individually, or as a team. Use whatever game engines, libraries, and languages you like.
The theme for this year's Game Off is...
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to create a game between now and December 1 incorporating the theme somehow. After a few weeks of playing and rating the games by participants, the winners will be announced shortly thereafter.
As usual, you may interpret ‘BUG’ however you wish …
Or go rogue and ignore the dictionary:
Note: Nobody’s judging the code quality, so lots of bugs are both expected and accepted. Focus on having fun 😉
Good luck, have fun, and sign up now if you haven’t already! <3
Voting will open shortly after the jam ends and is open to everyone who’s submitted a game. Entries will be rated on the following categories: Overall, Gameplay, Graphics, Audio, Innovation and Theme Interpretation. Voting will end on Jan 1st at 13:37 PT.
As always, we'll highlight some of our favorites games on the GitHub Blog, and the world will get to enjoy (and maybe even contribute to or learn from) your creations.
With so many free, open source game engines and tutorials available online, there’s never been an easier (or more exciting!) time to try out game development.
