Our First Game Jam!

You asked, we answered: on March 18 at 12:00 AM PST, we’re kicking off our next challenge!

The theme & our grand prize

You might have heard that our grand prize is 1BTC ($3,829.00 USD... give or take depending on the day!). In light of that, the theme is cash. Crypto, fiat, paper, coin... whatever cash means to you. ;-)

How to submit

Submitting is easy! All you have to do is:

  1. Start a project by picking a language/framework. We recommend checking out Pygame, LOVE2D, Tkinter, and Java Swing.
  2. Share your repl on the challenge board

Make sure to do this by April 18, 2019 at 11:59 PM PST.

How to work in a group

You can submit individually, but for this challenge, you’re also more than welcome to submit as a group. Groups can collaborate together in real time using Multiplayer—learn more about how to use it here.

(If you want to work in a group but can’t find one, we’ll be informally matching people on our Discord server under >Challenge >#matchmaker.)

Starting with tutorials for inspiration

We know designing a game in a month is no easy feat. Here are a few tutorials to help get you started:

I finally submitted my thing as well. It's a Lightning Network simulator. It fits the theme and it's fun.
I want that bitcoin so much I can taste it. It tastes like pennies and like financial freedom :D

@citlayik I'm excited to look at your submission :) Also, why does Bitcoin taste like pennies and not like a hot mining rig?

@KatyaDelaney what do you think antminer s9 tastes like? that metal hashing machine? pennies of course.
yay, I hope some people play it and give me some ideas so I can improve it until the submission date.
