How is Open Jam different?

Open Jam is all about open source games and open game development. While some jams require participants to submit source code for their games, not all of them require that code to be open source licensed. Open Jam encourages you to use open source tools and assets and to link them in your submission. Anything open source in your game creation process is encouraged!

Too bad they apparently allowed Unity3D games into an open-source game competition :(

2018 edition:
https://itch.io/jam/open-jam-2018

What we want to do with Open Jam is promote not only open source games, but open source game creation tools as well. This jam encourages use of open source game engines, authoring tools, and platforms, and Creative Common assets, and to link those tools in your submission. Anything open source in your game creation process is encouraged! That is why we are hosted by opensource.com and winners games will be featured All Things Open conference. Open Jam is all about open games and open game development.


Seems like they want less "open source" Unity games this time :)

This year's edition was a big success with 45 entries! The winner is a Godot-made game, and the top 5 has 4 Godot games and 1 made with custom JS framework :)

They made a nice table with "Open source karma", as I understand it karma 5 means full FLOSS tools: https://itch.io/jam/open-jam-2018
