About this project

About

Hi I'm Chase, but many of you may know me as retroshark. I created and have been hosting GBJAM for 5 years now and it has been the coolest thing for me to see how it has grown over the years. I have been hoping to create a whole new platform for GBJAM and it has been hard to do without the funds.

I want the all new GBJam to be entirely self contained on a single website with a game submission system, forum and store where everyone can purchase sweet merch!

What is GBJAM?

If you are new and are unsure of what GBJAM is read ahead! GBJAM is a videogame development jam, or in other words a friendly competition to create a game based on a theme and rules in an allotted period of time.

Funds Breakdown

Curious about where your pledge is going? I'm completely transparent so here's a breakdown.

  • Development of a website, game submission system and forum - $1000
  • Webhosting and Domain fees - $500
  • Storefront Hosting - $600
  • GBJAM Merchandise - $2000

(All hosting fees are for the next 5 years)

The remainder of the funds not listed a fall back for expenses I may not have realized as well as allowing GBJAM to continue to expand well into the future.

Risks and challenges

The only real challenges with GBJAM is handling the whole jam myself, so with the success of the Kickstarter campaign I hope to enlist the help of some people that are passionate about GBJAM and would like to help keep the website running smoothly!
