  • Name of submission (Please format it with your team’s name attached ex. TeamName_GameName)
    After you post your submission, PM me with the email addresses of your team members (up to 5), the name of your team and the name of your project. That makes it easier to get in contact with, so make sure to send that info over!

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.


All participants of the June UE4jam who submit an entry will be entered into a drawing to win a brand new Intel Compute Stick and Wireless Mini Keyboard.

I’m keen, check out my previous works and let me know if you are interested and have some skills.

Any particular reason why this falls on a 3rd Thursday this month instead of the usual 2nd Thursday? Just wondering if something’s changed permanently?

I’m not able to participate this time, due to vacation & not sure if I can get my internet to work till then :stuck_out_tongue:
Good luck!

It was just that we’re trying to schedule the judging time around E3 since and a lot of people will be gone and unable to judge the week between the submission deadline and winner announcement.

EDIT: Next month is back to normal.

Noooooes, can’t participate on this one, good luck and have fun guys, see ya next month! <3

Hi, I’m Phil and I’m in.

I’m faily new to Unreal Engine but I’m going to have a go anyway I think. :slight_smile:

I’m a newcomer to game jams and I have a question. Do I need to send any info beforehand in order to participate the Epic Jams? Or its just send it with the submission of the game? (sorry if I had any english errors, not my native language)

It’s not necessary to send any info beforehand, but it helps them organize things if you know for sure that you’re taking part.

I’m definitely going to try and get something ready in time, work will likely make it very difficult but I’ve never participated in a game jam and have always wanted to.

Also, in case it’s necessary, it will be just myself participating.

Beginner 3d modeler looking for team. I am comfortable with inorganic (man made) static objects, working on sculpting for organic objects (think nature), and extremely novice with character design/animation. Below are just some of the models I’ve created.

Now that uni is done for the semester I have time to participate! Looking forward to seeing what the theme is!

1st time joining in on a Game Jam but I’m pretty confident in my abilities with the Engine and I specialize in AI programming. I can also compose music! Message me if you have a spot open! Thanks!

Hey, I’m a decent coder (C++ & blueprints) but I’m no good at the pixels and polygons - if you’re an artist with skillz, gimme a shout!

Blueprint rat here looking for a team. Can make music. Last jam entry here. Please message if you’ll have me.

Hi i I’m an audio person looking for a team to join for the jam PM or email @ lewisbean.audio if your interested.

my work is @ lewisbeanaudio.com

Sent a PM! Can’t wait to see this month’s theme

Best of luck to those who are participating!

I’m in! Hopefully I can finish, big weekend ahead, and 6 weeks old baby.

I will be on Twitch as usual Twitch
