Tasjam at home

To embrace our increasingly-online lifestyles, we're holding an online jam!

Date:

Thursday, April 30, 2020


When

Jam time

TasGM is running an online Tasjam starting from 10:00am Thursday 30th of April and running to 3:00pm on Sunday 3rd of May (Australian Eastern Standard Time).

The event will kick off at 10:00am on Thursday, where we'll go over the theme and the general code of conduct on Discord. We'll run all day Thursday through to Sunday. At 3:00pm Sunday it’s pencils down and submissions are to be made to the 'Tasjam at home' Itch page before 4:00pm.

This is a longer jam session than usual, to give more time to fit game making around our busy lives. You can start and finish at times that work for you—we'll be posting any important updates to the Discord channel.

Showcase

After the jamming session closes at 3:00pm Sunday, we'll get together and showcase all the games that have been made over the weekend.

Games will be posted to the 'Tasjam at home' Itch page, and we'll be playing and discussing together on Discord from 4:00pm.

How

To participate, head to the TasGM Itch.io event page and keep in contact with the community and your teammates via our Discord. We'll be opening a dedicated Discord channel and voice chat for the jam prior to commencement, so this is the place to go to keep up to speed with other makers around the state while the jam is running.

Remember

There is no expectation to work as many hours as possible from Thursday to Sunday, so remember to take things at your own pace—this is a chill event, there are no prizes!

Even though there is a statewide 'stay at home' notice, you should remember to get out and stretch your legs/recharge between hours of furious game making.

The 'Tasjam at home' Discord channel is the perfect place to form teams, discuss ideas, and post screenshots of your work!

This jam is not restricted to Tasmanian residents–jammers from anywhere around the world are more than welcome (and encouraged) to join in.
