New Gamejam with GAMEE!

by Laura_D | 1st, February 2018

Calling all Construct game developers, we’ve got some exciting news for you! We’ve teamed up with social gaming startup GAMEE to bring you a fantastic competition.

If you’ve not come across GAMEE before, they’ve set up a fantastic new platform that allows you to play great little games using their own social app (available on both iOS and Android) or directly in messaging apps Telegram and Kik. And they’ve just finished developing a pair of plugins that will allow you to deploy your Construct creations onto their platform!

Which brings us back to the competition - develop a game using Construct 2 or Construct 3 that runs on the GAMEE platform and you could win some great prizes!

So what about some rules, it wouldn’t be a contest without rules right?

First of all, your game must be made in Construct (2 or 3), implement the GAMEE framework and work in the GAMEE JS emulator. Your game must also be PEGI 3, so that’s no sex, blood, violence, gambling and so on. (You can check PEGI ratings here.) You’ll also need to make sure your game is done with a portrait layout as landscape is not yet supported in GAMEE.

You’ve got one month from today to design, build, test and submit your game - submissions can be done here. Your creations will then be judged, and the winners announced later.

First place will net you an Xbox One, a year’s subscription to Construct 3 and a full month’s worth of promotion for your game on GAMEE! There will also be prizes available for 2nd place through 6th place including a Nintendo Switch, C3 subscriptions and more, so there’s plenty of reasons to get involved!

If you’d like to take part, head over to GAMEE’s site to find out more. The complete set of rules and available prizes can be also found in this sticky forum post and you can use the thread to ask GAMEE any questions about their platform! We hope you’ll join in this contest and we can’t wait to see what you come up with! Winners will be announced on March 11th.

Good Luck!

@Rhindon I know exactly what you mean, I have been there myself :) try it, we have seen really simple games succeed on GAMEE in the past as well!

@alextro great, looking forward to play it!

Sound cool, but psychologically very competitive for me.
I have to be both very short & merciful.

@GameeApp It's back again. Was working, then not, now working again. Came up with a big 403 error, I believe, rather than the usual 404, but as I said, it's now back.

Wow, thought this was 5mb, but it's now 3mb! I'm loving the challenge! Not sure I can get a music file that low, but it'll sure be fun to see what I can do.

@GameeApp - What parameters will the judges evaluate to determine the winners of this GameJam?

@Bigheti & @Valter_Filho - judges will rank games based on

1) gameplay - mostly if game is fun to play, challenging, how is the learning curve with multiple gameplays, ...
2) graphics - mostly if assets has same style, how does it look like all together
3) UI onboarding - if game is understandable, smoothness of the process of learning and mastering it, is it clear for player what to do from the beginning?
4) bonus points - anything that hits judges taste and he wants to rate it, it might be an easter egg, some craziness, well used physics mechanism or genre

You will get majority of points for first three mentioned. Bonus points is just a minority. Thats all I can publish, hope it helps.

@GameeApp - Thank you. :) That means a lot.
I do have a question - supposing I won first place, would the option to swap the Xbox One for a Nintendo Switch be an option. If not, LOL, I'd actually prefer to win second place instead! (Nintendo fanboy here, can ya tell?)
