If you’ve read all the details and are ready to enter your name in the selection process, you can do so with the form below. Dates of upcoming Pirate Jams and details on the selection process will be provided soon.

How much does this cost?

We’re working with our sponsors to cover most of the costs associated with participation. At a minimum you must cover your travel expenses to and from the event. During the event we'll provide breakfast, snacks, and non-alcoholic drinks aboard the boats. You're responsible for your food, drinks, and lodging ashore.

Development Experience?

Experience making games on your own in a game engine like Unity3D or Gamemaker is a requirement. Ability to quickly build something simple and fun on your own is a big plus. The 2019 development process theme will be "simple and fast" - so if you can, for example, crank out a cute little 2D side-scroller in a few hours, that's great!

How do I sign up?

Provide your details in the form on this page.

From time to time we go through the list and send follow up emails. A selection process will take place in the early months of 2019.
