WHAT THE HECK IS ROGUE JAM?
ALLOW US TO EXPLAIN
Pretty straightforward: Rogue’s on the hunt for badass games. They can be innovative. Weird. Beautiful. Simple. Complicated. For casuals or for die-hards. We don’t care. If your game wows our judges—some of the most seasoned execs across the industry—you could win big. Not just with all the funding you need to finish your project, but a publishing deal with us, all sorts of fun additional prizes, and a ton of exposure with our partners.
Entering is simple. As long as you’re over 18 and submit an original, unpublished creation we can play (or fully comprehend with video), you’re golden. There are no limits to the number of people within a team–but only one team member signs up for Rogue Jam and submits the game.
MEET OUR JUDGES
We can’t wait to sink our teeth into your game. In the nicest way possible, of course.
No, seriously. Everyone on the panel loves the visceral experiences and wild adventures that materialize after pressing play. We’re genuinely just as excited as you to see your game out in the world! Cross our tiny hearts.
WHAT’RE THE RULES?
It’s like this. The submission portal opens once the clock strikes midnight on November 29, 2021. You have one month to submit your game until the portal closes on December 31, 2021.
Okay, we know we’re calling it a jam, but you don’t have to start and finish your game in a month. In fact, we don’t care if you submit a project you’ve been working on with a team of 200 people for five years. Seriously, bring it.
Once the submission period closes, the judges will evaluate all the games for a couple months—we expect a good amount of entrants and we want to make sure we give every last one the time they deserve—and pick several winners. This will all be documented by our partners at IGN.com, so please stay tuned to the network for ongoing coverage.
This will all culminate in a Shark Tank-like event with five winners revealed by IGN over the course of a week. It’s going to be awesome.
As much as we love to break the rules, we still have principles of behavior and a semblance of structure to follow. Just a wee bit. But once you enter the competition’s arena, it’s all fair and foul play.
