Introducing the EGX & Rock Paper Shotgun Game Jam
Introducing the EGX & Rock Paper Shotgun Game Jam

Beware! This is an old news item from EGX 2018.

You may know EGX as the home to some of the biggest upcoming game releases, but did you know that the show also plays host to the largest collection of indie games in the world?

We LOVE indie games, and we want to support the creation of as many as we possibly can. That's why we've teamed up with Rock Paper Shotgun to host our very own indie game jam.

We want to see what you guys can put together in a month. At the end of the month, the nice folks at Rock Paper Shotgun will pick their favourite games, and the developer of the very best game will be invited to show it at EGX in September, for no cost whatsoever*!

The theme of the jam is very simple. EGX 2018 will be our 11th show, so the theme is "Eleven". You can interpret this in any way you like - maybe your character starts with 11 lives, maybe you have 11 seconds to complete a level, maybe the game is only played in 11x11 pixels. It's completely up to you.

The jam is open from now until the 24th August, to get started head here - we're looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

*We will cover all costs for showing the game, including a booth, branding and hardware. Unfortunately we won't be able to pay for travel to the show, but if you win, we'll host your game, regardless of where in the world you live!
