Announcing the 2017 Epic MegaJam

By Amanda Bott

It’s time for our third annual Epic MegaJam, our largest #ue4jam of the year! Game jams are a great way to test-drive Unreal Engine, learn new skills, or try out a swanky new team. And why not give it a shot when you could earn sweet prizes from our amazing sponsors?


The Epic MegaJam will kickoff on November 2nd, at 2PM ET, where we’ll announce the theme during our regularly scheduled livestream on Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube. This is a seven-day event and submissions will be due on November 9th.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to this year’s sponsors, which include Intel, Falcon Northwest, Allegorithmic, Speedtree, and SideFX.  There are a few more folks lined up, so stay tuned as we’ll announce additional sponsors and prize information in the coming weeks.

Be sure to check out what great games have been created in the past on our Hall of Fame. We are always excited to see the amazing games that come from our jams, especially with the extended event.

We’re mixing up the submission process a bit so if you’ve participated in the past and even if you haven’t, make sure to give our guidelines a solid read-through. Additional details about submission and prizes can be found on our forum announcement, which will be the official information center for the jam.

Mark your calendars and prepare to jam!
