Newgrounds Construct 2 Game Jam

by Tom | 15th, March 2013

We're excited to announce that Newgrounds.com is running a Construct 2 Jam! Everyone who uses Construct 2 can enter.

The theme of the jam is Touch. The idea is to create touch based games (but this doesn't mean it can't have keyboard controls as well!) If you want to learn a bit more about how touch controls work in Construct 2 read this tutorial on touch by Ashley.

Prizes

There's some good prizes to be won, and the top 8 places win!

1st Place
$200 USD and a Steam Key for Construct 2 Business Edition

2nd Place
$100 USD and a Steam Key for Construct 2 Business Edition

3rd to 8th Place
Steam Key for Construct 2 Personal Edition

How to Enter

Create your Touch themed game and submit it on Newgrounds. Make sure you tag your submissions with the tags "construct2" AND "touchjam". More detailed information can be found on this Newgrounds post.

Closing Date

The closing date for the competition is April the 30th.

We're really looking forward to seeing some awesome touch games! Are you planning on entering? Let us know in the comments!

Interesting, could be time to do an early reveal of a really unique touch game I've been making. Just need to do a few tweaks and it's ready!

2013 is really challenging for HTML5 game developers,
One Game a Month, Gamejolt Contest, Clay.io Competition, and now Newgrounds.

Awesome! :)

I have an existing idea that may work. I might put my plaformer on hold to try and make this. I've been wanting to look at touch controls in C2... especially gestures.

As I haven't tried any exporting yet, can You export from a free-version and have a newsgrounds compatible package?
