For someone who loves dogs, can I vote for a Space Dogs category? I’d love to give this boi a space helmet.


(Anyway, good luck and have fun everyone! Please don’t ban me <3)

Does it mean that instead of 3 equal finalists, now they will be ranked (like gold/silver/bronze)?

That is correct!

Excited for this. Would want to join a serious team that wants to win while having fun as well.

The theme is going to be avocados, specifically the Hass variety. Get started folks!

It’d be hilarious if the theme would also be related with cats and oooo Space Cats. That’s Intersting.

Ok I’ve got dibs on the character ‘eddy guacamole’

hello unreal. I am a young 13 year old teenager and wanna participate in the jam. In your last year rule list u said that the participant should be at least 16 years old. Can I still participate? If possible because I am quite young aspiring developer. Thanking you Epic

Is using plugins allowed within Game Jams? So if you had a plugin which extends blueprint functions would you still be eligible? It would make sense if you could but the last thing I want is to get dinged for not using base unreal engine.

Any word on when the official rules will be coming?

Also is it possible to report posts somehow? Referring to the spambot a couple posts up.

Can’t wait to go.

Has anyone gotten a response from Quixel as yet regarding the free account?

So got a few questions, 1 are things like Assets and/or Plugins allowed to be used in this Jam. 2 just making sure, I am currently working on a game that I was working on for about a week ago. If the game fits the theme, am I able to work on it, during this Jam?

You can use assets/plugins and things you’ve created before the jam BUT you have to declare what they are, and scoring is affected by this. EG just renaming an old game you worked on for months and entering it vaguely fitting the theme wouldn’t work. So in your case, you wouldn’t be scored on the things you made in the previous week, only the things you made during the game jam timeframe. Or if people use a lot of marketplace assets it wont be scored as highly as one that was created from scratch by the team during the jam week.

For legal reasons, 16 is the minimum age for participation in the 2019 Epic MegaJam. We’re hoping to be able to lower the age in the future, and we’ll do our best to make that happen for 2020.

No Aussie Loving, Start time is 5:30am here, dont you know programmers are only up at those hours if they have been up all night :slight_smile:
