Tuesday - July 6th - Check your Calendar buddy!

according to my Calendar - Tuesday is the 4th & the 6th is on Thursday, but my calendar may be wrong. lol :wink:

PS: July 4th is Holiday for us in US too btw. in case you forgot! lol :slight_smile:

PSS: the extra days will be great for the Jam too, imo. great idea

Hey! Yeah, the 6th was a mistake. 4th is a holiday for Americans but the 5 days before are all open times to submit as well.

awesome! an extra day!

Sweet extra day, enough time to add more awesome.

Yep, we’re changing based on the feedback that we should go Thursday to Tuesday since that syncs with the livestreams anyway. I always try to reiterate that we’re listening and willing to change to make the Unreal experience… unreal… ok I’ll show myself out

I offer my modest skills on ue4 , I have some skills on BP , behavior tree , also do pixel art and voxel models and chip tunes 8 bits if its helps . I want to participate on a team. So let me know !!

Nice collection of most free content available:

smore free stuff

Woo-hoo, just as the Ludum Dare 38 hype dies off, The UE4 Summer Jam is here!

I must say, this was my first Ludum Dare, and I think Ludum Dare does a tremendously better job that the UE4Jam at gathering constructive feedback and visibility for game entries. Does Epic have plans to increase community involvement and feedback for UE4Jam entries, or is it mainly about the swag? I really enjoy what Epic has setup here, but it seems like there’s little visibility for submissions unless a fellow developer does a stream or they win a category.

This is perfect timing…I am just getting some old buddies back together for development. The Jam will be the perfect way to streamline our workflows. Will definitely be getting submission details to you guys soon.

great to see the android category is back
