Why Game Jam are good for an indie Game Developper?

Game Jam

An Game Jam is an event when participant has to create a game following a theme in a limited time.

So why it’s good?

  • It forces you to step out of your comfort zone
  • It make you do small game/prototype
  • It help you having idea
  • It train you to work in a team

Having a fixed theme forces you to be creative and the fact that’s in a limited time forces you to do it quickly. Make some small games/prototype help you learn how to do new type of game/content that you probably would’nt do without a game jam. It forces you to step out of your comfort zone and learn new skills where you’r good and you don’t even know!

Some popular game have emerged from a Game Jam!

Such as :

  • Goat simulator
  • Surgeon Simulator
  • Super hexagon

And that’s only the games that i know and i’ve played, there more game idea/prototype from a Game Jam that inspired a successful game!

First off all a Game Jam is a event hosted by passionnate game dev, it’s a fun event where you train your skills and also make friend 😀

I recommend you to participate in a game jam, whether it is IRL or online.It’s a nice experience that will help you in your Game Dev Journey.
