Ready to find out the theme and bonus challenges? Watch the video below:
The theme is prototypes! There will also be three bonus subcategories, including the most impactful moment, most unique gameplay mechanic, and best world environment. It’s going to be a fun challenge!
We have a full guide by Kwalee and a video on what it takes to make a good prototype available right here. It’s definitely worth checking out before you start making your game. We also have a special live Game Jam Q&A with Jack Griffin and Allan Adham from the Kwalee team happening at 9:30 AM PST, Friday 31st, to kick things off. They’ll be sharing some inside tips and answering any questions you might have. Later that day at 3 PM, PST Zack Griset will be hosting a follow-up Q&A to provide additional help to anyone who needs it also.
