Jam Tips

The best pieces from #jam-lessons in our Discord server.

Tip #1

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.

Tip #2

Game jams are a good opportunity to experiment with ideas, so don’t let fear or doubt stop you from trying something new.

Tip #3

Set yourself a goal for the jam and communicate with your team if you have any. This goes for new tools, techniques, ideas, etc.

Tip #4

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!

Tip #5

Don’t let fear of the unknown prevent you from creating something really cool.

Tip #6

By acknowledging your flaws, you are giving yourself space to grow.
