Hello,

Jesper on behalf of the LiU Game Jam organizer group here. I hope that you are safe, well and personal in your lockdown. To ensure an optimal jam environment I have made sure to stock up on salty sticks and bananas.

This week it is finally time for Spring Game Jam and it is now time to submit theme words, see below for instructions.

See you at the jam!
Spring Game Jam 2021

Spring Game Jam 2021

17:30 7th May - 19:00 9th May
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 Spring Game Jam Linköping 2021 jam page.
How to upload a theme word

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.
Send gamejam@lithekod.se your games!
