Help us choose the winner of Game Jam PGH. Come have a beer and be part of the judging.

Game Jam PGH is a unique event where makers, designers, programmers, and tinkerers come together for a week of workshopping their game ideas. So far, teams have worked dilegently the week of Friday, June 23rd to create playable versions of their creations.

The winning team will have their game featured as a tournament at ReplayFX, one of the industry’s biggest gaming conventions located here in Pittsburgh July 27-30th. Cash prizes of $1000, $500, and $250 will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize respectively so the work can continue.


Games will be judged on the following criteria (that may change before the start of the Jam, but not after).

Gameplay - is the game fun, engaging

Tournament ready - can the game be played as a tournament at ReplayFX

Audience Appeal - Cast your vote for which created game captures an audience and makes them want to watch and play more.

Completeness - does the game do everything it should to work (start screen, pause, not crash, have music and sound fx)

Putted Togetherness - do all of the parts of the game go together, especially visually

To have a game considered for winning, it must be able to be run in a tournament format at ReplayFX. Games do not have to be multi-player, it can be score or timing based as well. Games should be limited to 10-20 minutes maximum to allow the tournament to be run in a reasonable amount of time.

This hackathon is brought to you by Academy Pittsburgh, Looking for Group, and the Replay Foundation, organizations passionate about gaming, creating, and community.
