Now more than ever, IndieCade is focused on supporting creativity, connection, and hope for the future. We invite game creators from across the world to join Climate Jam, to explore solutions that can address a rapidly changing world.

We invite developers from across the globe to join, contribute, and virtually connect.

The goals for the jam are to take action and raise solutions. We believe this generation of creators care deeply for our planet and holds the power to inspire while using games as a platform.

IndieCade is pleased to collaborate with the Games for our Future team. With their incredible experience of running many jams that foster social change and collaboration we are all in the best of hands.

At this moment it is all the more relevant to think about people, nature, and resilience in the face of global crises. We have this moment to explore how new and different kinds of relationships between people and nature might build the resilience we need to withstand and reverse major global calamities such as climate change, pandemics, and economic downturns.

A grand-prize winner and runner-ups will be selected upon completion of the jam. Awardees will also receive a price package which includes: Hand made original artwork, Promotion of game and studio/individual, Opportunity to be featured at IndieCade events (US/ EU), and a Carbon offset donation in your studios/individual name.

Climate Jam is a virtual jam hosted on itch.io, just follow the link and hit "Join Now.” The online jam will be covered live over IndieCade social media channels. Join us on the #climate-jam channel on the IndieCade Discord!

Games are due on Earth Day! April 22nd!

"We need to get angry and understand what is at stake. And then we need to transform that anger into action and to stand together united and just never give up."
