Unity is hosting a 3 day Game Jam. Put your coding skills to the test!

You've learned how to Create with Code. Now use what you know to jam out a game!

In this jam, you’ll build a game with a team (or fly solo!) that can serve as a portfolio piece that you can showcase to potential employers.
We’ll start jamming on Tuesday, June 29 at 9am PT (16:00 UTC) and support you throughout the week with tips, tricks, and feedback as you develop your game. Final submissions are due Friday, July 2 at 9am PT (16:00 UTC). Be sure to register now!
