The Future: 2030

by Tom | 1st, May 2014

In co-operation with NewGrounds.com we're excited to announce a new Construct 2 game jam!

Theme

The theme of this jam is "The Future: 2030". What will the future look like in 2030? Will flying cars actually be a reality? Will we be living in a utopia or dystopia? Are robots doing my washing yet? Are we all living underwater from global warming? Can we holiday on the moon?

All types of games are allowed as long as they have some element of the future in 2030 in them!

Prizes

There are an amazing selection of prizes for this competition! NewGrounds is providing some very generous cash prizes, and there are some Construct 2 licenses and Amazon vouchers to be won as well!

1st Place Construct 2 Business License and $400 Cash
2nd Place Construct 2 Business License and $300 Cash
3rd Place Construct 2 Business License and $200 Cash
4th - 9th Places Construct 2 Personal Edition License
15 runner ups $25 USD Amazon Voucher

Rumour has it, there might also be a few flying monkeys thrown into the mix as well!

How to enter

Build your HTML 5 games in Construct 2, and submit them on NewGrounds.com tagging your entries with the tag "construct2030jam".

You're allowed to enter as a team, but the prize can only be delivered to one person (it is up to that person to distribute the prize amongst the team).

You're allowed to submit as many entries as you want. All entries must however be made fresh for the jam (you can't submit games you've already published elsewhere).

Closing Date

The closing date for this competition will be 15th of June, so you have plenty of time to start submitting your entries!

Best of luck!

We can't wait to see what you all come up with! Good luck building your games! What do you think the future will look like in 2030?

Now follow us and share this

I like the extended time frame. Hopefully that will be enough incentive to finally finish and submit something from a jam.

Hmm, 16 years isn't very far into the future. This makes for quite an interesting challenge! Can't be too sci-fi, but it has to do something to stand out from present day. Subtlety will be important here.

@Tom Can we submit a game that suitable, but was created for a different jam; or does the game need to be built from scratch starting today?

I had a game that I whipped up in 3 days, but being able to spend 2 weeks on it would be fantastic. However it was already submitted to a game jam.

@jayderyu updated post for your question, talked to NewGrounds and we're only going to accept games that have not been published elsewhere before (made fresh for this jam)

Given the current state of the world - I don't think there will be anything in 2030. I wonder if a blank screen counts as a game? Then again...roaches might be around.
