The Global Game Jam 2024 is coming up fast, with jammer registrations opening on Monday Dec 4th. To celebrate, we’re running the first dot big bang Micro Jam Week!
This is a series of five daily co-building streams that’ll help you learn to make games on dot big bang. The streams will happen on Twitch and YouTube each day from the 4th-8th December, at 14:00 PST / 17:00 ET / 22:00 GMT.
Hosted by members of the dbb dev team, each micro jam will show you how to make something awesome on dot big bang, whether it’s making a new character, designing a small game world, or whipping up a custom player controller.
The first dot big bang Creator Incubator Program (CIP) is complete, and we’re happy to share the results today on our first CIP Appreciation Stream! This stream will pull together ten games people made in the first edition of the CIP program, showing off gameplay and design innovations in a wide variety of user-created games.
The stream will happen on 25/10/22 over on our Twitch channel, at 18:00pm ET (15:00 PT / 23:00 BST). If that’s late where you are, don’t worry – you can always watch it back later here. If you’re a member of our Discord, you can also watch it there.
Dot big bang’s game creation engine contains everything you need to build a complete video game — in fact, all the games you see on the homepage were made using tools that are available to you right now. From making voxel objects, to building worlds, to adding unique mechanics, there’s a lot to learn for aspiring developers.
Our development team regularly stream their process to help our creators get the most out of dot big bang. These live streams are a great way to see all of dot big bang’s tools in action, get essential tips and tricks, and learn how to improve and elevate your creations. You’ll also get the chance to offer input on in-development titles, participate in live playtesting, and have game development questions answered in real time.
