Weekend Warriors Game Jam Team
It is last minute, but we are holding a mini game game jam over President's Day weekend to create a product to enter in the AirConsole 2019 Game Dev Contest. The top prize is $5000, so this is a bit more interesting than our typical jams. We will be kicking it off on Friday evening, February 15th, at 6 p.m. You can get all the details in this PDF. We will be making a game called Fighting with Friends. It will feature a collection of 12 mini games that are designed for 2-12 people. Players will compete to obliterate their friends in a series of rounds.
Unlike our normal jams, this game has a premade game manager with all of the player selection and interstitials already prepared and the mini games are already designed. Each mini game will be assigned to an individual or small team of programmers. They will have until Monday, February 18th, to get their mini game finished and have it included in the final game that we will submit before Friday, February 22nd. We need people with development skills in Unity, 2D and 3D artists, and even people with limited experience to be apprentice developers and help with testing, asset clean up, and whatever else comes up. We will be open every day for people to come work and even have some extra laptops people can use, but it is totally fine for people to work from home, as well.
We will be producing this under our standard profit sharing agreement and it will be put up on AirConsole as a commercial project after the contest is over, so it has the potential to earn us all some money, even if it doesn't win one of the cash prizes. You can check out the details of how we work profit sharing on our PARTNERS page and see the specific breakdown for this product in the PDF. If you have any questions you can reach out to us using the info on our CONTACT US page.
Our next competition after this is Ludum Dare 44 which will be April 26th - 29th! Stay tuned for more details.

Our game jam team is open to anyone 12 years old and older who has a desire to be part of making some great games with very short time limits. However, there are a few caveats you should keep in mind. 1. Mad skills are what qulifies you, so don't expect to be a lead programmer if you are just learning to code, etc. 2. Since we basically live at the center for the whole weekend, it helps to be an adult; if you are under 18, we will need a note from your parent with their cell phone number so we can reach them, just in case, and if you are under 16, you'll need an adult to come with you when you are participating. 3. Ego is something you can only afford once we smash it out of the park as a team; be willing to sacrifice for the good of the team. 4. There is no cost to participate, and if we make something worth refining we can talk about royalties then. Nothing made in three days is ready for a commercial release. 5. You have to have fun or there is no point in doing this!
