**-------- PARTICIPATING TEAMS ****--------
**
In order to streamline the playing, judging, recording, and winners announcement process, we’re requesting that teams participating in the jam let us know beforehand in order to prepare appropriately for the event. We’ll update the list with links to the games afterwards, too, so everyone can find your title without having to scroll through the whole thread :slight_smile: Pre-registration is not required for entry, and we know people will come in later, but it will greatly aid us in turning everything around quickly. We appreciate your help in making this event awesome :cool:

Please send myself a PM with your team name and number of team members and we’ll get you added to the list!

Going to be hard to top last month! Looking forward to it!

I’ll be doing a Vive game, want to let the judges know beforehand so they can prepare. :slight_smile: Others will probably join me later so I will send a PM once it gets sorted out. Good luck everyone!

Woot! Can’t wait! Had a lot of fun last time :smiley:

Boarding the Jam Train!

can’t wait for this Jam!

Hi guys ! I am a 3D artist and a programmer (blueprint only). I already participated of a Unreal Game Jam so I know the rush !!!
here follows a link of my works.
https://rodrigomf.artstation.com/
any interested please PM me.

Aww yes! This time I can finally use my pc! Can’t wait :slight_smile:

I have just started building the Team, and will only be using people with absolutely No experience in programming or game design, or anything similar… so it should be amazingly fun no matter what we come up with.
rubbing hands together waiting for that theme

Good luck to everyone!

I’ll be playing ya’ll games again this april as well. Twitch

Not sure if i’ll be joining the game jam though.

My wife is very pregnant, due date is any day now, so … hm… I’m in? Maybe. :slight_smile:

Looking forward to the theme.

Congratulations fellow devdad!

I’ll give it another go! On my own this time, and with much less free time over the period. Good luck!

Is someone looking for someone who is pretty decent in blueprints?

Are you still looking for newbies :slight_smile: ?

Just a heads-up, I changed the stream where we announce the winner to the 28th, we had a lot of scheduling conflicts with ECGC coming up.

My life is now in a place I can participate in this month’s jam and I am psyched! I am throwing a team together, shoot me a PM if you are interested in joining. I am proficient in blueprints and am also an experienced audio engineer. I have participated in 6 ue4jams so far and have worked solo and part of teams. If you are interested in joining a fun team and would like to lend your skills, PM me with your preferred role (coding (bp/c++) modeling, audio, animation, UI etc.), a link to some cool stuff you’ve made, your skype username so we can touch base easier, your familiarity with using source control in UE4, and your timezone.

Thanks!

p.s. I’ll also take invitations if you have a team and think I’ll be a good fit!

I have a Vive and sent you a pm if you’d be interested in teaming up on a Vive game. I’m looking forward to doing my first jam with it.

My First go. Really looking forward to making something fun

hi, i’m a passionate gamer, i would like to make a team and be a ue developer for fun, i’ve a proficient ue dev at my side , need some artists.
someone there? :slight_smile:

bye,
Ale

Sorry I didn’t find this sooner.
I have 4 now, but a 1 team size. An accountant in Indonesia, a construction company owner in Missouri, a driver and a math teacher in Kansas.

I wonder if my comments such as “even if it’s artwork done in crayon, I’ll use it” were misleading though, because they each offered to help “if needed” but didn’t know what they could offer.
So I may end up working alone - which in itself could be quite interesting. Not sure how I would go about building audio, mesh, material assets and designing everything from the ground up alone in such a short time… but others clearly do it, so I’m eager to find out.
