      this time i'm happy to postpone i have my first freelancer job to do and now i can focus only in work, and then participate of the jam with calm and more focused 100% in jam. Maybe the date to jam was too close from event, but i really want Spring Jam happen, without winter jam was a pain, always have nice games in winter jams, and beatiful nature environments in Spring jam.

        I'm really excited for this game jam. I came across it on itch.io earlier this week and then it disappeared from there so I came googling.

        Can I subscribe to this thread and can I get notified when the date is set again?


        Thanks,

            You guys are going to do another marketplace takeover, I bet.

            Thanks to the guys that decided to award the big win to a solo dev for once!!!

              As Megascans is a part of the Epic Games family, and are also mentioned on the itch.io page as being a resource for the Unreal Spring Jam, does that mean we are allowed to use them in our submissions without listing them as content created before the jam?

              And in case if we do have to mention that we used Megascans in our final submission, do we just have to specific that Megascans were used or are we to mention each megascan that we have used?

                Any pre-made content needs to be listed, whether that's Epic's official resources, third-party, or your own. If you downloaded a Megascans pack, you can mention that the pack was used even if you didn't use every single asset in it. You don't have to list the normal/AO/Diffuse texture individually unless you want to detail that you only used the diffuse but authored the other ones yourself etc.

                  Just to be clear, provided we disclose what pre-made assets/code we use, we are permitted to use them during development? As an example I have some community assets I've put out in the past, if I disclose my use of them may I include them in my jam project?

                    That's correct!

                  What are the requirements for the solo game, does it have to be, like only a level with a nice art, fun gameplay, not very complex. Are there some limitations, as people can sign up alone and work with more people and make something that a solo dev won't have the time.(just want to know if it's worth the try, or there will be big projects that would normally take much more time).

                    No specific requirements if you're solo.

                  Do we have to list the use of the default animations from the third person mannequin?

                    Yes, any pre-made content needs to be listed.

                    I don't plan on participating in this one, sadly - I am still very much a novice and not confident enough in my skills with either Unreal or game dev just yet. I do have one question, however - while I know that the theme itself is going to be announced at the end of the stream, will that still be listed on the Jam page, or will I have to head to the livestream VOD to check for myself? I will be at work when the stream happens, but I would like to see what the theme is after it's announced, as I might like to start planning out documentation for such a theme at the very least.

                        The theme will also be posted on the itch.io page. Game jams are a great opportunity to learn, and it sometimes helps having a dedicated timeline. Don't feel discouraged due to your previous experience!
