AIJAM has one core requirement:
What's a game jam?
Game jams are a chance for people to get together and prototype ideas for games over a short period of time. Jams provide a set of constraints as guidance and people get to experiment with ideas and experience the full development process in a compressed way. AIJAM will focus on prototypes using AI and last 9 days.
What are the time limits?
The game code and content should (ideally) be developed March 21-29, 2015.
Can I use my pre-existing [X]?
Yes. Pre-existing AI systems are fine. So are publicly available middleware, libraries, or assets. You can use your own tools to make content as well. AIJAM is about innovating how AI is used in games - anything that helps you get to that problem is fine.
Have a library (e.g. flocking, pathing), tool (e.g. content generator, sound/art editing program), or other resource you'd like publicized to the jammers? Contact us and we'll add it to the resources page.
Do I need a team?
Nope. Individuals or teams may participate.
Is AIJAM at a location? Online only?
AIJAM is online this year. Feel free to get together and let us know! #AIJAM
Who owns the game when I'm done?
You own the game (subject to licensing restrictions based on pre-existing resources you use). We encourage you to make it open source if possible so others can reap the benefits of your hard work, but that's your decision.
Wasn't this called Research AI Game Jam (RAIGJ)?
You didn't answer what I need to know!
Contact us and we'll be glad to help.
