    The 2018 Epic MegaJam, our biggest #ue4jam of the year, is coming right up! This is a fantastic opportunity for you to have some fun while honing your Unreal Engine development chops - and you could win some fantastic prizes from our sponsors.

    The Epic MegaJam will kick off on November 8th at 2PM EST, on our weekly Unreal Engine livestream, during which we’ll cover the rules, prize details and ultimately conclude with the ever-anticipated theme announcement. Participants will have seven days to create their games before submissions are due on November 15th.

    Detailed information about submissions, sponsors, and prizes can be found on the Epic MegaJam Itch.io page, which will be the official information center for the jam. More sponsors and prizes will be shared in the weeks leading up to the main event!

    Use this thread for forming teams, general jam discussion, show and tell, and questions!

    Very nice. Might have to join this one. It's been awhile since I've done a jam.

        Nope - you only need one of you to submit! Just be sure to list all of your team in the submission form.

          I'm excited! This will be the first Jam I join.
          Do any veterans have any advice for a greenhorn? One week seems like a tight time limit.

            Take the path of the most enjoyable resistance. That way if the end result is not great at least you had a great time.

              Agreed, just join/create a team and go in as a learning experience. I learnt a lot from my last two, for example make sure if you do a practice run that you leave a gap between the practice and actual jam, it killed me for a while (winter jam).

                Hello!

                This will be the first Jam I join, is there any problem on using Substance Painter shaders?

                Thanks in advance!

                            I know there is no prize for the worst game, but I would like to try one day to participate to a jam, I just don't find where to join (I've read the itch.io page but can't find any registration form or similar...)

                              You don't have to sign-up ahead of time or anything, but you can create an Itch.io account and on the main jam page, click "Join Jam."
