About Course

If you enjoy coding, digital art, or just want to see what it’s like to create your own game, a Game Jam is the perfect way to practice your skills alongside other people of all abilities. In a Games Jam, you’ll aim to design and create a playable game in just 6 weeks.

Impossible!? Some really popular games had their original prototype created as part of a Game Jam. Goat Simulator, Baba Is You, and Forager are just a few examples.

The TeachAllAboutIt Annual Game Jam is free and open to everyone. It’s a little bit different to my usual courses as each live session is a development stream where you can share your work and I talk about different development techniques – it’s not a lesson, it’s working together!.

You can choose to join one, all, or none of the live sessions and still submit your game at the end.

Rules

  • All games must fit the theme announced in June.
  • Code cannot start before the game jam commences – practice, watch tutorials, but wait for the start date!
  • You can choose to make your game using any platform, but live sessions & tutorials will focus on Game Maker Studio (free)
  • This is family friendly. All communication is moderated and all games must be suitable for any age.
  • Any artwork or themes must be copyright free (or your own)
  • No discrimination allowed. We don’t tolerate bullying or inappropriate themes in our games.
  • By signing up to the Game Jam & submitting images or your final game, you agree that your work may be included in our progress galleries
  • Have fun! A Game Jam isn’t a lesson – it’s a chance for all of us who love coding creatively to work together and enjoy what we do 🙂
