The wait is finally over! The results are in for our 72-hour Buildbox game jam sponsored by Kwalee. This jam was one of our most challenging to-date, giving participants a tight deadline of only 72 hours to create an awesome prototype using Buildbox. Both the staff here and the team at Kwalee were blown away by the phenomenal entries that we received. The decision was tough, but the judges at Kwalee managed to narrow it down to the Top 10 finalists. If you missed it, we recently released the video of the judging session with Kwalee, revealing some of the top submissions.

Our 72-Hour Game Jam Sponsored by Kwalee Recap
We were proud to team up with Kwalee, our trusted partner, and leading UK publisher and developer of hyper-casual mobile games on this particular jam. It was the first time we had a 72-hour time limit, so the theme of prototyping was perfect. In fact, a good prototype is all you need to catch the team’s attention at Kwalee and land a publishing deal. This challenge was a fantastic opportunity to earn a potential publishing deal, plus a few cool prizes, including cold hard cash vouchers, and some serious bragging rights!
Congrats to the winners! All of the entries were incredible. We were blown away by all the talented developers and no-code creators in our Buildbox community. Thanks so much to everyone who participated. If you didn’t get a chance to join in this time around, don’t worry. We will have another game jam very soon. So, stay tuned for that announcement!
