GitHub's game jam, Game Off, returns next month

GitHub Game Off - Game Jam Hackathon Logo

The GitHub Game Off, our very own game jam, returns next month! Participants will have the entire month of November to build a game based on a secret theme (to be announced later) and share their creations with the world.

Much like previous years, the use of open source engines, libraries, and tools is encouraged, but not a strict requirement. Unlike previous years, however, we’re removing the restrictions! Previously you could only submit web-based games, but now all games are welcome - all platforms, operating systems, and devices.

The theme for this year’s Game Off will be announced here on the GitHub blog on Nov 1st at 13:37 PDT, so please stay tuned.

We’ve seen some great games submitted in previous years. We can’t wait to see what you come up with this year <3

The official Twitter hashtag for the Game Off is #ggo16.
