Wichita’s biggest gamedev event is back. Artists, developers, and creators of all kinds are invited! Bring a team, join a team, or fly solo!
This event is part of the Wichita eSports Convention. Participating in the ICT Game Jam gets you a weekend pass to the convention!
Even if you don’t participate, you can come play the games for free on Sunday!
For more details, visit ictgamejam.com and follow ICT Game Jam on Twitter. In the meantime, everyone is welcome to join us in the gamedev channel on devICT’s Slack team!
But here’s the gist:
Participants hang out Friday evening through lunchtime Sunday, make games. Hone your skills or learn some new ones! Hint: everyone is learning!
Doors open to the public on Sunday 2-4:00pm. Come play the games and pick your favorites!
Winners announced ASAP after 4pm on Sunday.
Winners receive cash or other prizes.

Do I need to know how to make games to sign up?
No! We’ve had plenty of people sign up and spend the weekend making their first game at previous events.
Is this a class? Will you teach me to make games?
This is not a class, or an instructor-led workshop.
We will, however have many knowlegable people in our community willing to answer questions. They won’t be able to help you step-by-step, but they can help you find resources, and set some good goals to aim for given your level of experience.
If you’re willing to learn as much as you can on your own, and are willing to ask questions, you’ll do just fine!
What should I bring to the event?
You will need to bring your own computer. We will provide some drinks and snacks throughout the weekend, but you’re welcome to bring your own.
Are there minimum age requirements to enter the event?
Minors can attend. Participants under 15 must be accompanied by an attending adult. Attendees between 15 and 17 must abide by regional curfew laws. We will have a waiver for guardians to sign for each minor participant.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
The event will be at Wichita State University Experiential Engineering Building. There will be ample parking.
No alcohol is permitted.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
A printed ticket, or showing proof of ticket purchase on a mobile device is fine.
What is the maximum team size?
While we recommend teams of 4 or smaller, we try to draw a hard limit at 5. You don’t need to have a team formed before the event.
