The 2022 Greenlight Jam is now over. Check out the games and join us next year!

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! 

May 16-22: Ideation Sprint Jam:

Participants worked out what they would make. They generated ideas with brainstorming, some research, and lots of prototyping.

May 23-May 29: Prototype Sprint Jam:

Participants built the initial prototype of the game. The goal was to have a playable experience by the of the sprint, regardless of how many placeholders or bugs existed.

May 30- June 12: Production  Sprint Jam:

Participants had this week to fix the bugs, add the juice, and make it feel like their games were close to release. 

June 13- June 19: Release Sprint Jam:

Participants added a little extra polish to their games and officially released them to the public.

There were 42 final entries to the Greenlight Jam.
