Run your own game jams with Game Jolt's new jam manager
Run your own game jams with Game Jolt's new jam manager
July 16, 2014 | By Alex Wawro




Game jam organizers, take heart: indie game hosting site Game Jolt has developed a game jam hosting platform and made it available for public use, potentially making the business of managing jams a bit easier and bringing a bit of healthy competition to current jam-hosting heavyweight itch.io.

The Game Jolt Jams platform is free to use and seems to offer a fairly robust set of tools for running your own game jam, including a simple website creator with community-friendly optional features like a voting system, an activity feed and Twitch integration for participants to livestream their work.

Game Jolt's jam hosting platform is still evolving, and its existence as a public tool should help foster more small-scale events like the 7-Day FPS Jam and the Tower Jam.

If you take part in one and end up falling in love with your jam handiwork, it's worth taking a moment to watch Capy's Nathan Vella speak at GDC Next 2013 about how to turn a game jam game into a 'full' game.
