Needs a location
This is the regular Epic GameJam which is a good way to hone your UE skills or jsut to learn in a fun engaging atmosphere with fellow UE enthusiasts. There's a max cap of 5 ppl per team, but if we have more than 5 we'll distribute people across several teams. It'll be great if you can specify your skill level and specialty (e.g. Sounds, 3D, VR, BP, C++ etc) so we can help distribute skills more evenly if we do have more than 5 signups.
Below is a slightly "generalized" writeup taken from the uE Forums regarding the regular jams:
"When the jam officially kicks-off, make an amazing game by yourself or with a team (up to 5) around the given theme in Unreal Engine 4.S ubmit a download link to a Submission Thread in the official UE Forums.
A small panel at Epic will judge entries on the following criteria:
• Unique use of theme
• Fun factor
Detailed rules available here (https://cdn2.unrealengine.com/HostForForums%2F2016%2FDecember+Jam%2FDecemberUE44jamRules-aa29adc1473a0e8e1e9d27d1a9896f0f06e26310.docx).
All submissions will be featured in a highlight reel posted to Epic's YouTube channel and shown on Twitch.
The top 3 submissions will receive an Epic Swag Box with all sorts of goodies, a "Game Jam Finalist" forum badge, a featured playthrough on the winners' announcementTwitch stream, as well as a highlight on Unreal Engine launcher!
PLUS OTHER GREAT PRIZES FROM SPONSORS ( this will be filled out closer to the game jam event)
