Puumped! Can’t wait to see all the great games at the end.

So excited! I’ll be streaming a lot of development progress here:](Twitch)

Hey guys!

I’ve created a discord server for the jam! :smiley:
I hope to see all the people participating and other enthusiasts there. Lets meet and talk, have fun together, maybe help each other in a difficult situations.

Dear admins, if the idea would fit - please contact me, so I could give control over the server to you. :slight_smile:

I made it on Western Europe setting, hoping no one would experience any lag. Not sure how its going to be though.
If there is any other official/fan Discord channel - let me know.

Here’s the link:


I really like the new organizational changes made to the jam. It’s super cool.

Well I’ve gotten sick with terrible timing, but at least I’ve started and I’m going to try to get this game finished in time. Happy jamming everyone.

Hi. If I going to make multiplayer co-op, how do I have to send build? Can I send dedicated server code separatelly or I have to place server in the game build and one player will be like a server?

Tinkering with something that is basically a walking simulator. So… not much to the mechanics as such. Here is a mood board though:

where are we going to see thse games?

Hi forum,

if someone still feel passionate to participate this jam, i’d love to discuss it real quick and make something fun. Actually the soul/social fun app/game for entertainment.
Looking for a ue4 guy who could take a blueprints/c++ part of developing, to make texture export from ue4 to server in realtime(stream or just save to file triggered by event).
IM me for detail
cheers and good luk to everyone!

You can send that separately - just be sure to include the information in your submission.

We’ll have gameplay videos streaming during our Results Livestream. I also hope folks with share their games here once they’re done. Additionally, we’ll post a list of all the submissions, once the deadline has passed.

A download link would be awesomesauce, but YouTube is fine too.

Hi all! It’s 5 am here, and I have to go to my job in 3 hours, but I’m still here in a few minutes away from my bed! 38 hours of hard work, between my payed work and few hours of sleep are finally passed, and they where really fun! Submited my entry, but didn’t recieve any confirmation. Again. Like with houdini license that I didnt get :(. This makes me nervous a bit, but back to my submission:

In the world without Sun, light is the most precious thing. Only human inner light can fight the darkness here. Those who lose their light become shadows.
Player takes on a role of the Lighthunter, a guy who travels through ancient civilizations’ ruins, in search of the light particles, substance that can restore inner light.

Preview video:

And some screenshots:

Later I am planning on making a forum post with complete breakdown of all effects and material tricks I used in this project.

The post with breakdown is here:…ject-breakdown

It has been a long time since we were able to participate in a jam. We had to finish a bit early, but we were able to realize our gameplay vision! If folks are interested:
