Awesome, Count me in :slight_smile:

I’m down for it. Anyone need a C++ programmer? :smiley:

Sounds great, I’m pretty new to all of this, but hey, you gotta start somewhere right? Really exited about seeing what else is going to make and seeing how different each project is! :slight_smile:

Awesome, I’ll participate again this time. Well, it depends on the chosen theme :rolleyes:

Welcome aboard! Cant wait to see what you create :slight_smile:

I’ve only experimented a bit with UE4 because I was stupidly hesitant to leave UDK for a long time. I’m looking forward to this Jam as a reason to really get my hands dirty and figure out more of the asset pipeline and publishing executables side of the engine.

Do i need lastest UE4 version and active subscription to join JAM?

Nope, you just need at least one subscription ever so you have and can use UE4!

I’m in, talked me into it :slight_smile:

good luck everybody, see you on the stream

Thanks, im stuck with 4.4.3 atm :slight_smile:

i make games for a living ! Count me in!

I think I’ll be doing something, just need to work out what :slight_smile:

I’m Looking for people to join for the game jam. if your interested you can find me on Twitch. I’ll be on for most of the day.

Is it allowed to use unreleased plugins for ue4 or does that also fall under the ‘only new stuff’ rule?

Totally, go for it

So If I have quite lot of code laying around, which does various gamy things (none of them finished for that matter :D), I can use it ?

This Theme is really awesome. Ive got a lot of ideas from this theme.

If it will package properly, then yes. We have to able to run it of course

Will so do this.
