One Month, Four Sprints

The concept of “greenlighting” a project is giving it the clearance to be fully developed in a released project. For this jam, it only means taking the concepts from the first week and giving them the “all clear” to be made into a title worth selling! 

Week 1: Ideation Sprint Jam:

June 17th – June 24th
Participants work out what they will make. They generate ideas with brainstorming, some research, and lots of prototyping.

Week 2: Prototype Sprint Jam:

June 24th – July 1st
Participants build the initial prototype of the game. The goal is to have a playable experience by the of the sprint, regardless of how many placeholders or bugs existed.

Week 3: Production  Sprint Jam:

July 1st – July 15th
Participants have this week to fix the bugs, add the juice, and make it feel like their games are close to release. 

Week 4: Release Sprint Jam:

July 15th – July 22nd
Participants add a little extra polish to their games and officially release them to the public.
