On November 14, jammers began their week-long journey to create a game based on this year’s theme, “Down to Earth,” provided during the Epic MegaJam kickoff livestream. Shortly thereafter, developers began sharing images of cute cats in spacesuits, creepy characters in plague masks, and crowded control panels.
The caliber of the entries in the 2019 Epic MegaJam was nothing short of impressive. From stunning graphics, to quirky gameplay elements, and moving storylines, it was clear that the Unreal community poured their heart and soul into their submissions.
Play all the entries on the official 2019 Epic MegaJam Itch.io page!
This year’s incredible event would not have been possible without the help of our generous sponsors: Intel, Falcon Northwest, Assembla, Dekogon, DXRacer, GameTextures.com, Gökhan Karadayi, IGDA, Lenovo, Project Nature, Quixel, SB, SideFX, SilverTM, Soundly, and Whole Tomato.
