**-------- PARTICIPATING TEAMS --------
In order to streamline the playing, judging, recording, and winners announcement process, we’re requesting that teams participating in the jam let us know beforehand in order to prepare appropriately for the event. We’ll update the list with links to the games afterwards, too, so can find your title without having to scroll through the whole thread :slight_smile: Pre-registration is not required for entry, and we know people will come in later, but it will greatly aid us in turning everything around quickly. We appreciate your help in making this event awesome :cool:

Please send myself a PM with your team name and number of team members and we’ll get you added to the list!

I am not entirely sure if this is a good place to look for the team, but will leave some of my work here :slight_smile:
Would love to take part in september jam, so it would be good to team up with some blueprinter.

Of course, please feel free to form teams in this thread. Welcome to the jam!

These dates clash with Eid, so I’m not sure it’s the best choice.

Since im really new and need some practice… Count me in ^^
Let`s see what the theme will be :slight_smile:


gamejam isn’t good for my procrastination habits :smiley:

I’m in.

Haven’t jammed since February so I’m trying to see who in my studio group has the time! Might be 3 or 4 of us. I just want to make a game, been working a lot on open world environments for my project so it’ll be a nice treat to jump back into blueprints and make another weird entry to shock you all hehe.

Hi, I’m totally new to this, and i may be participating just for fun, and to learn how to use UE4, more deeply ! :slight_smile:
I think that you can count me in, even if what i’m going to do, totally sucks :slight_smile:

Ok so we’re doing this even though I close at work every night (trying to trade shifts with coworkers)

3 Members

Possibly 4 if our sound tech joins however I’m most likely doing all that myself as well. Prepare for the return of some old friends…

Hi there, if you need an experienced composer and sound designer for your team, I’m up for it! I can do the music traditionally or make it adaptive/interactive with FMOD or Wwise. I have no genre restrictions.

My name is Juhani Junkala. I’m a 33 year old musician from Finland. I have over 20 years of experience as a composer and electronic music producer. I also have a master’s degree as a classical composer from Sibelius Academy (ranked top 7th music university in the world, 2016).

Check out the previous games I’ve worked with in my Game Audio Portfolio (2016)


Ah shoot… my schedule is too packed for these dates :frowning: can someone tell me how often are the jams? maybe i can catch the next one?

Team: TiMer Games.
Members: 2

I’m also in, for the first time! I’m still rather new here and learning about Unreal Engine, so I hope to have a great learning experience :slight_smile:

Hello I am part of the MC Games team, we are from Brazil and this is our first time in the Jam. We are thankful for being given the opportunite to be part of this incredible event. We are looking forward to the reveal of the theme to start creating the game. Thanks again and good luck for.

First time in the Unreal Jam but second game made as a team
Caffeine Powered Productions, cant wait!


I’m making some time this week to contribute music to anyone who needs a hand! Let’s jam!

Wait, you mean you make music for all the jammers? Probably no, but this should be a thing :smiley:

I was at a jam recently where we had just a few of sound guys. They all assembled at one table and made SFX & music for all teams. Was epic! :slight_smile:
