The best pieces from #jam-lessons in our Discord server.
Be sure to take breaks when you need it! Go for a walk, stand up and stretch, or go watch something. Our jam lasts 9 days specifically for this reason.
Game jams are a good opportunity to experiment with ideas, so don’t let fear or doubt stop you from trying something new.
Set yourself a goal for the jam and communicate with your team if you have any. This goes for new tools, techniques, ideas, etc.
You don’t have to be an expert in every game dev related role. If you are struggling understanding and producing, consider joining a team!
Don’t let fear of the unknown prevent you from creating something really cool.
By acknowledging your flaws, you are giving yourself space to grow.
