has Hacker Plan
TheDrone7

Welcome to KaJam! This is a codejam/hackathon being organized and hosted by replit to celebrate Kaboom.js - A JavaScript game programming library that helps you make games fast and fun (we also like to call these games Ka-Fun)! It was also made by one of our own interns - @slmjkdbtl (don't spam him in comments thank you)!

Anyways, back to the topic, you can find all the important details at https://replit.com/kajam but here is a small summary.

  • Schedule : The jam starts on October 18 and ends after 1 week, i.e. on October 25.
  • Requirements : Should run on replit.
  • Submission : Publish to replit apps with the tag #kajam2021.
  • Results : Who knows?
  • **Judges : ** It's a secret!
  • **Prizes : ** Why of course, CASH MONIES. There is a $10,000 Grand Prize and Six categorical $1000 prizes so bring out your best game (literally)!

FAQ

Q. Is there a theme? What is it?

A. The theme is (will be announced when jam starts). It's open to interpretation. Make a game, a non-game no worries, it just needs to be FUN. As we like to say,

"If it isn't Ka-fun it will go Ka-poof!"

Q. Can I participate in the competition with a team?

A. Yes you can! But the prize will be divided among your teammates. Also, one submission can only get 1 prize.

Q. What requirements does my app need for it to be accepted as a submission?

A. It needs to be able to run on replit, this is a must-have. However, you can use any language, any packages, any libraries, any modules, quite literally anything as long as it runs on replit (or you can make it run on replit our community has turned out to be exceptionally good at doing this)!


And that's it, folks! Again, visit the page for the exact details (if you're confused about time zone and stuff). Good luck and happy hacking! You can ask any additional questions in the comments section but be patient the answers might take a while but they will be answered.

What if you win but you don't have a method of receiving cash (I say overly confident)

Profile icon
MrVoo

@TheDNAHero ping me if you get answered :>

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@TheDNAHero we obviously won't be giving out 10k USD in cash, we will reach out to the winners and discuss any possible means of transfer and send it out that way.

@TheDrone7 Does this include 10k worth of hacker plan? ;)

Profile icon
CodingElf66

@TheDrone7 So no cash, because you're going to need our address and mail it (that's weird). Maybe you can mail a check? Use PayPal or any online methods? I'm just wondering what the method is going to be, or if we will have free choice.

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@MrVoo you can use the $10k to buy $10k worth of hacker plan but in general, no.

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@CodingElf66 free choice. Whatever's convenient

Profile icon

@HankBrown taking first cs class this year, wondering if I am good enough.

It will be fine @HankBrown

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@HankBrown All you need to do for making good games is being creative. You can make amazing games even while new to coding (I speak from experience, games were some of the first things I created).

Profile icon
AnvayMathur1

@HankBrown I would suggest using kaboom.js if you are just starting because it's pretty simple. Phaser.js is a bit more advanced if you want to make complicated games.

Profile icon
mariabest

@TheDrone7 true, I just started getting back into programming and realized just how I was able to do with the basics

Profile icon
TheDNAHero

@HankBrown With the power of w3schools.com on my side! I say no.

Profile icon

@TheForgottenNPC I would love some help since this is really my first time using any programming language to make a game.

Profile icon
CodingElf66

If we feel like it, can we publish a repl (project) that we already made as our submission?

Profile icon
MrVoo

@CodingElf66 You have to make a new project so everyone starts at the same time

Profile icon

Profile icon

@TheDrone7 oh lol.

Profile icon
VulcanWM

If the theme is something I’ve made before, can I use a project from before and just make it better or do I have to make it from scratch?

Profile icon
MrVoo

@VulcanWM It's okay to remake something, but editing the code of something you already made probably isn't allowed

Profile icon
VulcanWM

Oh okay thanks @MrVoo
