Unofficial Repl game jam
Profile icon
PeterStudenkov

Hi! As you can see, i'm hosting a game jam. A game jam is a hackathon for video games. It is a gathering of people for the purpose of planning, designing, and creating one or more games within a short span of time, usually ranging between 24 and 72 hours, and some even longer. Participants are generally made up of programmers, game designers, artists, writers, and others in game development-related fields.(Thanks, wikipedia!) Start up the repl to see what the jam's all about.

umm... it's a little hard to host your own game jam. most of the time (well, actually every time), it's by the mods
