The time has come once more! Another GDevelop Game Jam is upon us, and we bring exciting new things for you all. Welcome to The GDevelop Game Jam #3, sponsored in part by Zorin, featuring guest judge Nathalie Lawhead!

The GDevelop Game Jam #3 will run from January 27th to February 5th on this jam page!

That is right! Our third BIG game jam is here, following the GDevelop Game Jam and GDevelop Game Jam #2, as well as smaller weekend and example jams held during 2022. Last year, over 600 games were made by nearly 3000 people during GDevelop Game Jams. And we hope to see you in this one, too!

✨Welcome our Sponsors: Zorin and Poki!✨

Zorin OS.


In 2022, GDevelop partnered with Zorin OS, a friendly Linux distribution, to be part of Zorin OS 16.2 Education. Now, we're joining forces once more, as Zorin is sponsoring the GDevelop Game Jam #3 and providing a copy of Zorin OS Pro to the main winner of the jam! Zorin OS Pro is a polished Linux distribution with tons of amazing open-source utility apps.



Poki has some of the best free online games selection and offers the most fun experience to play alone or with friends. They offer instant play to all our games without downloads, login, popups or other distractions.

Poki is based in Amsterdam and has a team of 30 people working on their gaming platform. Read more about the platform they are building on their company page.
