Huzzah, it’s a game jam! You have one year to plan, develop, and build a game and bring it to the showcase. It can be a typical video game, or something completely different!
At the end of the year, Flyover Indies will host a Showcase to demo your game to players and proudly display your handiwork. We’ll have more info about the venue and exhibition closer to the end of the jam.
I bet you all thought we forgot about sparKCade! Well we didn’t! We don’t forget about ANYTHING. In fact, we’ve got two announcements!
Firstly, we’ve decided that, in addition to the game jam, sparKCade will be our first KC Game Developer showcase! What this means is that in addition to the jam games, we welcome midwest people to come show off any other games they’ve made!
If you want to participate in the jam or the showcase, let us know by July 15th so that we can make sure we have a space for you at the venue! To participate you’ll need to be able to make it to the event here in KC, and you’ll need to bring along anything your game requires to function, as well any branding or related material you’d like to present along with your game. We can’t provide computers, controllers, monitors, or anything like that.
Secondly, we’ve narrowed the date the weekend of August 18th! We’ll be giving more precise dates once we’ve coordinated with our venue. This means that everyone has about 2 and a half months to prepare.
We’re still looking at and deciding on a venue, which will be announced along with the official dates ASAP.
We hope a bunch of people decide to show off their stuff with us! We really want sparKCade to spark awareness in KC and the Midwest about how many super cool, talented developers we have! Get some publicity, play some games, and have some fun with us at sparKCade!
