ooh another one that I can’t catch due other obligations, I was hoping this month Jam starts at 21th :frowning:

Arghhh…Valentines Day? some of us nerds…I mean developers have significant others. I’m in though. I had to drop out of my last one, but I’ll participate!
I’m a one man team working on a 3d hack slash, but can also draw sprites/vector. 3D Modeling, some animation, almost all blueprints and some graphics like UI and such.

Isn’t Valentines Day in February?

For the first time i should have time! Now… anyone want to team up / open team anyone ^_^?

I’ll participe for the first time =)

3D modeler/animator is available? :slight_smile:

what year is this…what year is this. Got my months mixed up

Yaaaay ill be in! Will have to work around uni but ill get something in

Sup all I am a modeler/ animator. and I want to join a team to help out. Im in the middle of a project off and on again but i want to do something. This will be my 4th jam.

Hey! Me and a friend are forming a team and we need a modeler. :smiley: I sent you a PM!

I’m thinking I should make some extra time and join a team this time, but I have no idea how not to one-man everything. Never done anything in a team before.

…or I’ll just make something by myself again, if I can think of something cool matching the theme.
Most likely taking part either way, I feel like I need a fun excuse to make something silly.

Hey I do those things!

also if anyone else needs an artist or even someone with some blueprint knowledge, hit me up.

hey all! I am competing as dotly. I will be streaming development of my game live on twitch, at stop by and check it out!

I am participating again, but this time with a buddy of mine. I am already seeing forward to Allar playing the games :D. I hope that Alexander and Ivory will have a blast too^^.

I am seeing forward to all the submissions!

hey there! I could use someone on my team I am primarily a programmer, and I will also be doing music. Was just going to use stock assets and some things I have from previous games, but it would be amazing if you joined my team! if you’re interested hit me up on email

It is January 14th not February 14th.

Experienced game jammer with a bunch of random skills and commercial software licenses looking to jam with another group this week. I have decent experience with UE4 blueprints, and some experience with Maya, Zbrush and Substance Suite. I’d most like to work as a level designer and such, but I can also do some game-play programming and art.

I’m interested depending on theme. Would be interested in working with an artist.

EDIT: Probably most interested in 2D, but if I can work with a good 3D artist, I’m open to a 3D prototype as well.

I’m ready to team up with someone good at blueprints, I can 3D model game environments and assets.
I’m basically an archviz specialist, but I can do optimized stuff for games, so if someone is interested in level architecture just PM me.

Newbie to the Unreal Engine 4 but have some experience with UE3 and good experience with Game Maker 8.1 and Game Maker Studio with GML coding. Looking preferably for an artist/modeller but will pair with anyone who is willing to give this a proper go. I am mainly a programmer but have experience in everything apart from 3D modelling.
