    Hello Friends,


    I am very excited to announce the first ever Messy Coder Community Game Jam!!!
    Starting officially on the 6th of April, but the Open Party will be on Friday the 3rd of April over on twitch www.twitch.tv/theMessyCoder/ --- https://discord.gg/3YW9h43

    With everything happening around the world, no matter how dark it is getting, all the stories of community, friendship and cooperation have been amazing. It feels like for every 1 person hoarding there are 10 people out there helping neighbours and strangers in need.

    Our Messy Coder community on discord is no different and I have been amazed at how many people are trying to help each other, from messaging to see how someone is, to making masks and face shields for medical workers. You are all wonderfully beautiful Badgers!

    This has inspired us to host a Game Jam, to spread a little bit of happiness, be a bit of a distraction and for people to make new friends.

    So that's the theme of the Game Jam;
    Friendship, Team-work, Cooperation and Badgers!

    https://itch.io/jam/a-messy-community-game-jam

    Entries have to be made with Unity, but can be 2D, 3D even Text Based games. Your imagination is your only limitation.

    As the theme is about friendship and team work, we really encourage people to team up for this Jam. Hopefully this helps anyone out there who has wanted to be in a Jam but doesn't feel like that they can make a game by themselves, now is your chance :)

    But dont worry! You dont have to be in a team, you can still join by yourselves and make a game that follows one of the subjects in our theme.

    We look forward to seeing what amazing and fun stuff you all will be making, and hopefully meeting some new friends along the way!

    Have fun, be safe, stay at home and be kind,
    - Messy

    I love Messy Twitch streams and have already signed up for the jam. It's surprising (or maybe not!) how few badger 3D animated models there are out there, so I will likely go with the 'Friendship, Team-work, Cooperation' part of the theme.

    I like that there are not too many restrictions and prizes too! Looking forward to this.

    Is it okay to start early? I'm still working full-time (remotely) and there's only one weekend during the proposed time frame.

    Hi everyone, great news we are getting some assets being donated to everyone who is entering the Game Jam to help with making your games.
    You do not have to use them, the asset store is full of free assets, you can also use your already purchased assets or even make your own from scratch!

    It's a multiplayer tycoon game. All players are working together to make everyone happy and healthy. But what each player can do is limited by the role they choose, so the game can only be won through collaboration.
