So, what do we do in the meantime while waiting for the jam start date?....sharpen our behaviors and custom events?

Purchase a pack of energy drinks and setup your gamedev playlist

Join us on discord and bounce around game ideas.

If you have a lot of time on your hands, start flexing your limited-time gamedev muscles early. Try making a game in a week before the jam starts and share it!

Now is also a great time to get on Twitter, follow Stencyl, and check out the #MadeInStencyl hashtag for inspiration and maybe finding team mates if you're looking to collaborate?

Hey everyone!

So the Stencyl Jam is fast approaching, entering your game is pretty simple. You need to upload your game to Gamejolt.com and put the jam hashtag in the description #StencylGameJam your game will then automatically be entered into the game Jam.

Its also fun to make a post/devlog about your game as a new topic here in the game jam section on Stencyl.

Hi, Guys! This might be silly questions since I am new here :)
First, is this an online GameJam?
If so, how do I register?
Thank you very much for your understanding :D

yeah its online so anyone anywhere can enter, There is no registration, you just need to make a game and then upload it to GameJolt and put #StencylGameJam in the description. Easiest way to do that is to export your game as a SWF file and upload that file to game jolt.

Made an account just for this, been wanting stencyl studio for a while but not wanting to pay for it (not that it's not worth it)
