Developer Roll7 has announced the OlliOlli SkateJam taking place both online and at the London Southbank University, Feb. 28 – March 1st.
To celebrate the launch of Roll7’s OlliOlli on Xbox, Wii U and 3DS, Curve and Christos “Failnaut” Reid are hosting a 2-day game jam! They are encouraging developers of all skill levels to come to the London Southbank University and code a game.If you can’t make it down, feel free to develop your game remotely and submit to our Itch.io Game Jam Page.
The theme of the Jam will be ‘skate’. Seems obvious, right? But they are welcoming even the loosest definition of the term. How you want to define a ‘skate’ game is up to you.Want to create a first person shooter where you travel the map on a skateboard destroying your enemies with concentrated blasts of pure raditude? Sure thing.
Want to code the world’s first Twine-based skate trick attack game? GO FOR IT.
Here are the prizes:
For Southbank University Attendees:The developer has teamed up with GameMaker Pro and Unity to offer the winning coder or team (of up to five people) their choice of license!
The second place dev or team will receive the other license(s).
The first place team (of up to five!) or individual will also receive a handsome Xbox One console each, courtesy of Microsoft!
For Online Attendees:The winning online attendees will be given a 3DS or 3DS XL console (your choice) each!
