Welcome to the MechJam Website

What is MechJam?

MechJam is a series of game jams that have been running since April 2021. Since the first MechJam, there have been over 210 submitted games, 1480 participants and a ton of winners over various categories. The first jam attracted 38 submissions but by the time the latest MechJam was over (MechJam IV), there was an amazing 131 submissions. 

The basic idea of the jam is very simple, all you have to do is create either a video game or a physical game which contains mech or mecha. They don't even have to necessarily be playable, though in most entries they are playable. There have been games created in a wide variety of genres: action, text adventure, platformers, and even a pinball game! The jams have attracted some incredibly talented people from around the world who have kindly shared their fantastic work with the Itch community.
