Last year, we asked you to create a 'No Internet' game for the Opera GX browser. This year, we’re going one step further.
It’s time to save millions of mobile gamers from the terror of losing WiFi or running out of data.
The Opera GX Mobile Game Jam begins on October 4th, 2022. You’ll have two weeks to develop your mobile game, with the five finalists receiving huge cash prizes. The Jam’s theme will also be revealed on October 4th, 2022.
Will it be your game featured on the 'No Internet' page of Opera GX Mobile? Sign up today and join the Mobile Game Jam!
AND THE THEME IS…
Is that a hungry monster? An angry robot? Or perhaps an unstoppable tsunami?! Maybe something has been put in motion and can’t be stopped… whatever it is, don’t look back, and keep running forward - your prize is just ahead!
The above text is just to inspire you and doesn't have to be included in the game. The theme is KEEP MOVING. We also have an additional optional modifier of ONE-THUMB GAME
Be sure to check out everything on the Jam page including our creator's guide to learn how to upload to GX.games and ensure your game is correctly tagged.
A few people spotted that the $36,000 USD prize pool was bigger than the prizes listed on the Jam page. In previous jams, we have seen an incredible volume of games created so this time we’ve got an extra $1,000 USD for ten games outside of the top 5. These will be judge’s picks and allow for more prizes for more games.
Time to get jamming!! Best of luck to everyone.
