We announced the GitHub Game Jam, our very own month-long game jam, a few weeks ago. Today, we’re announcing the theme and officially kicking it off. Ready player one!
You have the entire month of November to create a game loosely based on the theme hacking, modding and/or augmenting.
What do we mean by loosely based on hacking, modding and/or augmenting? Here are some examples:
Unleash your creativity. You can work alone or with a team and build for any platform or device. The use of open source game engines and libraries is encouraged but not required.
We’ll highlight some of our favorites games on the GitHub blog, and the world will get to enjoy (and maybe even contribute to or learn from) your creations.
README.mdfile to include a description of your game, how to play or download it, how to build and compile it, what dependencies it has, etc
If you’re new to Git, GitHub, or version control…
The official Twitter hashtag for the Game Off is
#ggo16. We look forward to playing your games.
