What is the November Challenge?


The November Challenge is an event in which you release and market a game or game related product during the month of November with the goal of making $1. The goal is to use (and hopefully improve!) your release and marketing skills with the goal of making money off of something you made!


What can my product be?

Your product can be a game or anything game related. This includes tools, assets, etc..

What qualifies as a win?

The goal is to make money off of your product and learn about the release and marketing process. The amount of money earned is somewhat arbitrary, but if you want to set an amount, you can use 1 unit of your local currency.

How does the community participate?

People are encouraged to give feedback on each other's products. Even if you didn't buy someone's product, you can still give them feedback on their marketing efforts!

Do I have to start the project in November?

You can complete an old project or start a completely new one! The only requirement is that the project is released during the month of November.

When is the November Challenge?

As the name implies, it's during the month of November. (Nov. 1st 7PM UTC to Dec. 1st 7PM UTC) The 1st November Challenge will be held this November and hosted by me!

The 5th Kajam took place during the month of August, seing 9 entries submitted around the "Retro" theme. If you want to join the next one, know that it will take place in November, and will be hosted by regular member @DaFluffyPotato!

But what is a Kajam?

Kajams are relaxed competitions taking place over a full month, in which we make a video game focusing on a specific aspect of game making. The rules are pretty open, and don't require you to work throughout the month - even a tiny game made in an evening, or an improvement of an existing game of yours can fit! Kajams are perfect to learn, experiment and improve your gamedev skills. Detailed rules here.

The topic of the next Kajam will be chosen by its host and announced upon the start of the event. Follow us on Twitter or Reddit to stay updated!

EDIT: The Kajam is cancelled - what about we host something different this time? To be announced shortly!
