I’m looking forward to IT!

IN SOVIET RUSSIA JAM GAMES YOU!

I am so ready for this GameJam.

I would like to ask, How often do these style jams happen?
I don’t think i’m ready for this one,

but i’d certainly like to gather my team and build for the next one!

Every month. Normally in the middle of it like this one

When exactly does the entry have to be submitted (date, time and timezone)?

So it’s 15th Aug 00:00 EDT?

How to register for this jam???

just simply send a PM to Alexander

@Alexander_Paschall I sent a PM yesterday about Community Spotlight and attending this jam, but I see that I’m not part of the team list, not sure if you received my PMs. (Feel free to tell me to shutup if u are receiving and just havent actioned).

EDIT: Thanks I see it now.

Third time’s the charm, amirite? Hyped for tomorrow!

WHAT time does the twich go live???..
got New team and we need to see theme before we submit in… ??
we are new and scared we wont get it done… lol…

WHAT time does the twich go live???.. (i see 2pm your time + 5 hrs… man that 7pm UK time booo) wasted day… for me atleast lol

Now as i have joined a New team and we need to see theme before we gain the confidence to submit… can we submit at 2pm? as a team
we are new and scared we wont get it done… lol…

Thanks for the opportunity to compete

They take part every month around the mid of it :wink:

I think that they will tell it at 2pm there time where they always make there streams.

And submitting is until the night from sunday to Monday 12 am there time that would be 5 am your time 6 am your time :slight_smile:

This will be my first Game Jam too, looking forward to it =] Will give me something to focus on!
(UK team too, so yeh time is confusing ha)

It was also confusing to me, why they don’t tell the exact time zone. But since they started to post countdown links, its much easier, just follow these guys and don’t worry. Countdowns are always true, regardless of where you’re from. Read the main post carefully to find them.

Dammit. That’ll teach me :wink: Cheers!
