[Competition] Java Game Jam competition


With 8 submissions we are at rank 19 of 86 of the current jams in progress :slight_smile:



So, i did play through all entries, that are on itch.io so far. They are all really great, but i have one clear favorite …


BIG THANK YOU to everyone who submitted and kept up the good spirit!

We have 11 new fun games, lots of new ideas and a great tool for programming

Special thanks to @FManga for Java on Pokitto and FemtoIDE

Head on over to the competition itch.io page to check out the submissions yourself, and to cast your votes!



About 8 days to give ratings to games. Now I can just relax and play all the wonderful games :joystick:

The games are very diverse as is our community, around the globe.:grinning:


I did play all titles now, looked into different aspects of gameplay, story, relation to the jam topic, graphics, playability, depth, replay value and what just makes the most fun just in my personal opinion. Very tough decision i must say.
I am trying to convince my daughter to test the games, too…


Please make sure to check the instructions of each game on the itch.io game pages, we just added more information about our game to make it easier to understand what’s going on and what can be done :wink:


Oh, yes, good hint - very helpful!
