In addition to the Epic Swag Box, each member of the winning teams will be receiving 1-year of Houdini Indie (including the Houdini Engine) provided by SideFX. This amazing tool can be used with UE4 through the official Houdini plugin.

Also in addition to the Epic Swag Box, each member of the winning teams will be receiving a free copy of AIPD. You will have a choice of Xbox One, PS4 or Steam keys.

Got a question - I know there’s been Vive submissions but can you submit an Oculus Rift game for the jam, just for an xbox controller (no motion controllers)?

Similar to question above, can we submit DayDream VR games?

Hey all, we’ve limited the rules to desktop platforms to ensure that we have the intended devices to test the games on. Regarding VR, we do have a Vive Pre and the Oculus Rift, so those are g2g. We cannot guarantee that we’ll have the appropriate mobile devices to play your games, so mobile platforms are not permitted within the rules.

Thanks, and happy jamming!

Thanks . Had to google g2g and all the results were “got to go” but I guess you mean good to go like the bp compile tooltip.

Some older people still use LOL to mean “lots of love” like it used to mean on postcards. Assumption, the mother of all awkwardness!

Haha apologies! Left over from my raiding days :cool:

So how can you join the jam

Just submit your game on the submission thread (it will be up once the theme is released)
And PM Unreal your (your team’s) private details (shipping address for prizes, name of the recipient and your t-shirt size)

Awesomeness thanks again

And remember, you can join at any time, even if you didn’t preregister. All you have to do is submit a project (that meets the prerequisites in the rules) to the submission thread once it’s up.

I would like to join a team for this jam, done the previous ones solo. Please PM if you’re interested in joining my team/having me onboard in your team. Let’s do this!

Hi, we need a 3d artist for our group! PM if you’re interested in joining my team!
