Welcome to GameJam!

From March 1st to 31st your challenge is to create a video game based on a topic and other criteria. Submit your game to be reviewed by a panel of judges for a chance to win awesome prizes. GameJam is open to participants in grades 2 to 8 or their equivalents, and judging will be based on three age categories: Junior (grades 2 to 3), Intermediate (grades 4-5), and Senior (grades 6-8). You may participate as an individual or as a group of up to 3 people.

As this is an online GameJam, your video game needs to be submitted in a digital format that our judges can review online over the internet without any installation requirement. Such as hosted on platforms such as: Construct 3, Itch.io, or Scratch.

What's the topic?

The theme for GameJam is Retro Games! Games that are inspired by, or relating to, classic games of the past. See the Rules & Regulations for details.

What are the prizes?

The winners in each age category will receive a winner’s certificate as well as a 3D printed trophy.

They will also win a VPL Service Experience Package where they can choose to have an item 3D Printed, Carved / Engraved with the Glowforge, or a 3D Scan and Print of themselves.

Where do I start?

Be sure to view the full Rules & Regulations and Guides & Tips.
