Join the 2018 Spring #ue4jam

Von Amanda Bott

Come into the Unreal Engine community, join up with a team and prepare for the next #ue4jam! Once a quarter, Epic hosts the #ue4jam to give developers a chance to create new projects, sharpen their skills and compete for awesome prizes.

The Spring #ue4jam will kickoff with the announcement of the theme at the end of the Unreal Engine livestream on Thursday, May 10 at 2PM ET, available on Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube. Jammers must submit their projects by Tuesday, May 15 at 2PM ET, at which time the submission window will close and judging will begin. 


After the five-day hustle, all submissions will be awarded points in three categories; fun, visual aesthetic, and unique use of theme. Our sponsors will award the highest scoring projects with fantastic prizes, including an Intel® Optane™ SSD 900P and a Houdini Indie license from SideFX, among many other prizes. All Spring #ue4jam finalists will be entered into a raffle for a custom Unreal Engine-branded laptop from Falcon Northwest.

More sponsors and prizes will be announced and we’ll share additional special categories you can compete in throughout the month. Keep an eye on our Spring #ue4jam forum post for updates and a full list of rules and be sure to join the jam on our Itch.io page; We can’t wait to play your creations!
