The Defold Foundation and Yandex.Games is inviting Defold developers to join a month long game jam.
The Defold Foundation and Yandex.Games is hereby inviting Defold developers across the world to join a month long game jam. Developers will be challenged to create a themed web game showing their creative and developer skills as well as a good integration with the Yandex.Games SDK. The proud winner and runner-ups will receive marketing and advertisment for their submitted game, hardware, swag and bragging rights!
Yandex.Games is a catalog of browser-based online games that can be played on smartphones or desktop devices and require no installation. Yandex.Games is the home of several succesful games made with Defold. Here's a selection of games:
The theme for the game jam has not been announced yet.
The submitted games will be judged and ranked in three categories:
The games will be ranked based on the average star rating given by the players.
The team at Yandex will rank the games based on how well they believe the games will perform on the Yandex platform.
The Defold Foundation will rank the games based on technical excellence.
Submissions to this jam must be made through the Yandex.Games dashboard. The game must pass Yandex moderation before it is accepted into the competition. You have two weeks from the end of the game jam to submit updates to the Yandex.Games SDK integration to pass moderation. You are not allowed to make any significant changes to the game itself during this period.
Head over to the Learn section of the Defold website. There you will find plenty of tutorials, manuals and examples to get you started.
As many as you want! But we recommend that you focus on quality over quantity!
Yes, the game has to be created using Defold.
