Calling all indies, students and Dare to be Digital applicants!
We are proud to announce the very first ChilliSource game jam. A 48-hour weekend event where participating teams create a prototype game using the new ChilliSource engine and compete to win £1,000 cash!
The ChilliSource Game Jam is hosted remotely and therefore open to everyone, anywhere in the world – students, indies and especially Dare to be Digital applicants. The game jam is timed perfectly for anyone applying for Dare to be Digital and can be used to support your application. Otherwise, this is a chance to become part of the open source revolution and try a brand new engine that belongs to the game development community.
ChilliSource is a versatile, free-to-use, open-source game engine which utilizes the C++ 11 coding language. ChilliSource supports both 2D and 3D game development and allows games to be deployed for iOS, Android and Windows. This open source engine is designed by game developers for game developers, and because of its open source nature you can, mould, adapt and add to the engine! Download your free copy here and get started with our tutorials.
ChilliSource has been used to create chart-busting mobile titles such as Ubisoft’s Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes and Mind Candy’s Moshi Monsters Village.
To help you get to grips with the ChilliSource engine and give you a head start in the game jam, we are hosting a ChilliSource Workshop. Location and dates to be confirmed.
