The Arbitrary Gamejam 18 (Jan 16 - 18, 2015): Promoting Indie Game Devs

Recommended Posts





The Arbitrary Gamejam 18 (#tagjam18) is the 18th game jam in a series of monthly game jams:

  • Each month is hosted by winner of previous month.
  • Runs from Jan 16 to Jan 18, 2015 (72hrs)
  • Themes will be announced 24hrs before the start of the jam.
  • @madmarcel won TAGJam 17 with an HTML5 entry.

More info here:


The Arbitrary Game (TAG) Jam is a monthly game jam with three random themes to challenge your creativity! Entries are judged by the host and winner gets an opportunity to host TAG jam next month.

TAG is a game jam with the goal of promoting small and unknown indie game developers. The winner of one month's game jam will be "tagged" and is responsible for hosting the next month's game jam, pulling traffic to their websites. (That’s the prize or punishment for winning.)

Participants can tweet using #tagjam18 to let others know that that are planning to participate.


The gamejam will have three themes. Participants must address one of the themes in their game. Games which address more themes will be rated higher.

Participants have complete freedom in how they interpret and incorporate one or more of the themes into their game.

The three themes will be generated using a random word generator. TAG is intentionally arbitrary to encourage outside-the-box thinking and wild combinations.

The host also provides two optional bonus themes.


Hope to see you there.
