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:
- Start a project by picking a language/framework. We recommend checking out Pygame, LOVE2D, Tkinter, and Java Swing.

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.)
