    Alakajam! is a happy little community aiming at hosting regular game jams & other gamedev-related events.
    We're hosting a main competition on the September 20-22 week-end, with the goal for all entrants to finish a game in 48 hours, either solo or as a team.

    Schedule overview
    Theme submissions start on Sep. 6th (2 weeks early), while the two weeks after the jam will be used to let people play each other's games, exchange feedback and ratings.
    We have a karma system in place making sure that the more feedback you give, the more visible your game is to get feedback in exchange!


    Previous events
    Check the Events page for a look at the past jams we held. Other than the typical 48 hour jams, we host other events like gaming tournaments where we compete on jam games :)
    You can also check the previous entries #madewithunity

    Getting in the loop
    If you're interested, you can follow the event on Twitter and/or directly join us on our Discord channel.

    And of course make sure to register to the website so you can start submitting themes, why not post to introduce yourself... and eventually post your game.

    We hope to see you around! ;)

    Never heard of the site before and enjoy checking out jam games (there are some awesome things due to the time constraints forcing focus to be more on unique gameplay elements - in fact many hit indie games came out of game jams).

    I will have a look sometime this week. Thanks for sharing and good luck with your jams and site.

    @GarBenjamin I hope you'll enjoy our community. Don't hesitate to come on the discord channel to meet us.
    We're also hosting a launch stream on twitch one hour before the start of the jam to reveal the theme :)
    You'll find the stream on the front page of Alakajam when it starts ;)
