Stencyl Jam 2014 2014-02-21 13:02:55
In 2012 we hosted Stencyl Jam 2012 here on Newgrounds. Stencyl is game creation software that makes game development possible for non-programmers, using a drag and drop editor to build your games and game logic. For more information, check out Stencyl.com!
Since then, Stencyl 3.0 has arrived with a lot of great new features. In addition to the web, you can release your games to iOS, Android, Windows, Mac and Linux.
To celebrate the ongoing success of Stencyl, Newgrounds is hosting Stencyl Jam 2014!
The event starts today and ends Friday, March 28th. The theme is wide open; make any game you want, just make it with Stencyl. This is a great chance for both new and established devs to get motivated, make something and maybe win some money!
So to sum it up:
1) Make a game with Stencyl.
2) Upload it to Newgrounds by March 28th.
3) Tag it with "stencyljam2014" so we find it.
Your entries will be featured on our Stencyl Jam 2014 page. It would be great if you include a link in your game to the collection, to spread awareness and cross-promotion, although it isn't required. You can also do whatever you want on the side to monetize your game, although we do have a handy ads API that is integrated with Stencyl if you want to try that. Don't forget you can also wind up selling your game on mobile or Steam!
And yes, PRIZES!
1st Place - $500 + Stencyl Studio License
2nd Place - $300 + Stencyl Studio License
3rd Place - $200 + Stencyl Studio License
If you've ever wanted to try making games, this is a good time to start!
