We’re pleased to team up with The Tentacle Zone at Payload Studios to host our very own cat-themed GameJam.
If you’re interested in all things cats and you’re familiar with engines such as itch this is the GameJam for you.
We know everyone LOVES cat games, but we’d love to see some games created which help us fulfil our responsibilities to cats and achieve our overall vision that every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.
The challenge is to build the best game during our Jam based on one of our five cat themes.
We’ll be judging the entries to create a shortlist of games which we’ll share far and wide – and ask our streamers to play during our Play with Purrpose fundraising event.
We’re running the Jam with an anti-crunch approach – allowing plenty of time for cat naps!
We’ll start the Jam on 9 October, giving everyone a chance to ask questions about the themes, share ideas or questions ahead of a weekend of working on their ideas. We’ll then be having daily check-ins through the week (12-16 October), with a final call and submission deadline on the 19 October. We’ll share our shortlist on 27 October after our panel of judges – including cat experts and gamers – have picked their favourites.
If you want to join the Jam, join the Tentacle Zone Discord where we’ll be sharing all the latest updates.
Not sure a GameJam is for you? You can get involved with our Pawsome Players Play with Purrpose event all through October! By fundraising you’ll be helping us look after cats and kittens in need all across the UK. You could have a games tournament with friends, take on a charity stream, host a cat drawing workshop or even bake a gaming related cake. However much you raise you’ll be helping us make sure cats in need aren’t left in the cold this winter.
