Good Things Come in Threes - Gamejam!

by Laura_D | 11th, May 2017

Good grief, how did May roll around so quickly?

As you can imagine, it’s been full steam ahead here at Scirra HQ to make sure that the full version of Construct 3 is ready to be unlocked for the Newgrounds GameJam which starts next week. So it’s about time we told you the theme really eh?

“Good Things Come in Threes”

Everybody knows it, and now its up to you to show it!

We’ll be unlocking Construct 3, so you’ll have the fully featured version at your fingertips to bring your ideas to life! We’ve also agreed with Newgrounds to extend the length of the Jam to two weeks, so it will now run from the 15th to the 28th of May. That gives us more time to squash any bugs that might come up, and gives you time to create something really cool!

As this is a Jam to celebrate Construct 3, we will only be accepting games made in Construct 3.

But why should I enter this Jam?

Because everyone loves a Gamejam!

But seriously. By building a full game (even if you don’t decide to submit it), not only do you get to try Construct 3 in all of its unlocked glory, but you’ll also be helping us to improve the program by submitting bug reports, giving us feedback etc. It’s a win win really.

And we’re going to throw in a free year’s subscription for Construct 3 as a prize for the top three games! Plus, the best game will be featured on the home page of Newgrounds!

So get your thinking caps on and start coming up with some killer game ideas - we can’t wait to see the results!

Nice! Obviously you can't use other game engine besides Construct 3 right?

The theme is “Good Things Come in Threes”?
When uploading on Newgrounds, do participants need to enter a tag in the description?

Nice jam!
As Construct2 owner, I was wondering: so I have to register on Newgrounds website for the jam and here to use the Construct3 free for the jam?
How does it work?
Thank you.

I think it would be better to open full version before the gamejam. It doesn't seem considerate to the participants to have them be exposed to potential game breaking bugs or other worse kind of bugs that might be lurking, and it might just generate a bad first impression for people.

Will be unfair if I import some Construct2 project into Construct3?
