Jammy Games has been modeled to be similar to a regular game development company, the main difference is that we’re always willing to work with and assist those looking to get their foot in the door. Using industry standard software such as Epic’s Unreal Engine, Blender, and SpatialOS, we provide all of the tools and resources you’ll need to create full modern looking games.
Once the week is up we help place the finishing touches on your game so that it’s ready to be published and released so that the world can play and enjoy all of your hard work. This gives you a huge boost to your portfolio and gets your feet firmly planted into the waters of the gaming industry.

Can You Really Make a Game in a Week?
The simple answer is, yes! The longer answer is that while you can build the base game within a week, a lot of the polishing up is done afterwards such as performance optimization, debugging, etc. A fun fact is that there have been game jams where some pretty well-known indie games have been developed in under a week, some finished in just 3 days! It just takes an open mind, hard work, commitment, and a love for the art of game development to turn your dream into a reality.
How Jammy Games works is that we start you off with a basic game template using the Unreal Engine and then let you and your team work your indie game dev magic to transform and adapt it into a fully fleshed out and playable game. We provide you with huge libraries of art assets, pre-written code, and more so that you don’t have to build everything from scratch.
Once the week is up, we work with you and behind the scenes to perform quality assurance on your game such as bug fixing, resource and system optimization, and just a general tidying up and polishing of your game so it can be ready for publishing and released to all of your soon to be fans. We handle the messy parts so that you can spend the entire event doing all of the fun and exciting bits that you’re interested in.
Jammy Games is the perfect week-long holiday for those looking to wet their feet and follow their dreams of real game development! So, what are you waiting for? Show that your passionate about becoming a true indie game developer and register with us, today!
