Congratulations to the winners of the April 48 Hour Game Jam!

FGL is proud to present a week long game jam with $500 in cash and prizes! This is a great opportunity to build a simple game quickly that we can help you monetize.

This Game Jam starts on May 26th, 4pm PST and ends on May 31st, 4pm PST

If your game is built in Flash, Unity, or mobile, you can polish it up and get it into the Bidding Marketplace (and eventually the GameShop)!

If your game is built in HTML5, you can earn an additional $200 in advance for integrating our simple HTML5 SDK into your completed game. 

Theme:

Burning!



Contest Rules:

    • Game entry must be visible to all users with a Community Level of at least 1. (share your work!)
    • 1 week to create a game
    • Game must work on fgl.com or fgl's mobile app (game can be mobile or web)
    • The theme needs to be central to the game. We mean it.
    • DO NOT request approval for your entry until after judging (and your game) is complete or the game will be disqualified! You are unlikely to sell licenses to a prototype in the Bidding Marketplace, so there is no benefit to being approved until the game is complete.

Entering:

No more than 1 week after the theme is announced, participants will upload their entries to FGL and post a link in the entries thread. Any game entered or altered after the 1 week is up will be disqualified.

Judging:

    • Judging will be done by FGL staff.
    • Winners will be announced when judging is complete.(usually by the following Friday)

Newgrounds Construct 2 Jam. It runs from May first to June 15. I'm well into my game for that project, so I'll have time for a second.

Ah, a week. This is more like it. 48 hours always felt too limiting for me, I don't like that kind of stress.

Thanks! I will try to be better about keeping an up to date events calendar to list other contests on. Unfortunately I rarely learn about them before deciding on the start of the next jam. 

Please let us know if you hear about any others! Smile

Merlin was talking about the badges in the last engineering meeting so I know it's pretty high on his list. Hopefully it won't be much longer! Smile

True, though $450 + 30 FIs + 2 RVIs = $500 in cash + prizes Laughing

I guess that phrase got cut from the final edit of the initial post, will add it in now. Embarassed

Maybe I read this wrong. Maybe the theme is literally "to be determined."
