Hello,

Jesper on behalf of the LiU Game Jam organizer group here. We hope that you have found some way of surviving the heat and got some time to relax and take it chill.

This Saturday we are going to start our chill Summer Game Jam. Instead of just having the jam taking place during one weekend it will take place during 3 weekends; one for group forming, second one for half time review and last one for final review. Of course you are free to work as much as you want on the project and can drop in or out as it suits your schedule.

As always the theme is generated collaboratively via our Discord bot, read below for more information.

See you at the jam!

Summer Game Jam 2021

17:00 10th July - 19:00 25th July
Online at LiU Game Jam Discord 
A game jam is an event where programmers, artists and gamers come together and create games; both computer games and board games. We are going to follow the same structure as our physical jams so please be online in time so you can participate in the theme generation, brainstorming and group forming. Only difference is that the salt sticks and pizza will be provided by yourself.
 

How to participate

  1. Make sure you have a working microphone as this will make it easier to brainstorm and jam with the other jammers.
  2. Join the LiU Game Jam Discord server.
  3. Create an itch.io account and join the Summer Game Jam 2021 jam page.

Theme generation

The theme generation is similar to our IRL events. We take pairs of words and put them together to form themes. You are the provider of these words. To submit themes to this jam we have a Discord Bot Baby Boi that you send in your theme suggestions to. Simply send the bot a private message with one word. The theme submissions are open now - join the Discord server and send in themes!

Theme rules:
  • Should be only one word.
  • Should not be a game genre ex. FPS, RTS.
  • Keep it safe for work.

Write game jam history


We have started to collect all games made during our game jams on Itch.io. It is an impressive collection but it is only a fraction of all things we have created together.

Hence we encourage you to upload your old game jam projects to itch.io and send us a link to them. Either via the email button below of ping us on Discord.
Send gamejam@lithekod.se your games!
