Epic MegaJam Announced!

By Alexander Paschall

After two years of amazing #ue4jams, the second annual Epic MegaJam is going down this October! This Epic MegaJam is poised to be a monumental event with more prizes, categories and sponsors than ever before. You can find out more details and start forming a team in the forum announcement thread. If you've ever considered joining us, now is the time to jump in and start jamming! 

Special thanks goes out to the jam's sponsors: Falcon Northwest, IntelAllegorithmic, Speedtree and SideFX. The new prizes have yet to be announced, so stay tuned for more information.

In the past two years of ue4jams, we have seen hundreds of entries, had dozens of finalists and even had many titles go on to be built into complete games. Since the last Epic MegaJam, we have recieved a wide range of games with unique mechanics like GrabbityI'm Gonna Smash You With My Face and T.A.N.A.A.T.A., so you can expect a lot of riveting entries from this week-long extravaganza.

Once again, the ever-awesome Micheal Allar will be helping us judge and present the winning projects along with Chance Ivey, Jess Hider and myself on the October 27 livestream. All valid entries will be shown in a highlight video during the stream for the whole community to see. Mark your calendars now and prepare to show the world what you can do!
