48 hours doesn’t sound like much time for a polished, market-ready game. Small jam games can still demo a great new game mechanic or show a world you want to explore – if only there was more time.
If you think you’ve struck gold – take our challenge: Bring your jam game to the market and have a chance of winning 10,000 DKK. The Nordic Game Jam organization encourages you to polish your game, create more content, more levels, fix the last bugs, re-factor the code, repaint the binary, scramble the faces or whatever you think is necessary to enable selling your game for money.
This is not only a fun competition to win money, but an encouragement to go through a learning experience of “that other part of game development, which is not code or game design” – namely business.
Here’s the deal: Your game must be made purchasable! Any app store, portal, your own website or wherever you prefer to release it. The point is that you’ve taken your game to the market – it has to have a price, and must have sold 1 copy (you have to be able to document it -and no, selling one copy to your mom doesn’t count). UPDATE: licensing deals count as well.
From all the submissions, one winner will be selected. The winner will be announced during the Nordic Game Indie Night in Malmø (free event the night before Nordic Game Conference starts).
Write your submission with a link to the original jam game on Unicorn7.org and send the documentation of sales to email@example.com before April 30th.
Btw, we are looking for partners to match the 10K (DKK).
