UniJam is an online computer game development hackathon for students at the University of Melbourne. The event is organised in collaboration with the Computing and Information Systems Students Association (CISSA), Society for Electronic Entertainment (SEE), Anime and Manga Club (AMC), and Community for Digital Entertainment Creation (CODEC).

For the hackathon, teams of up to four students develop and bring their own computer game to life. Afterwards, each creation will be submitted online, judged by participating clubs and sponsors, and made available to download.

Students are given creative freedom around this year’s theme, ‘connections‘, and are encouraged to get inspired creating art assets, music, and unique game features. Submissions will be judged on a variety of factors, including:

  • Playability
  • Originality
  • Relatedness to theme

UniJam offers students an opportunity to:

  • Practise their skills and display their strengths within various disciplines (software development, game design, visual arts).
  • Learn and apply new skills and techniques related to game development.
  • Work as a team.
  • Create an exciting game!
