Now that you've had time to get acquainted with Leadwerks, it's time for the Summer 2016 Game Tournament.

WHEN: The tournament will start Monday, July 25, and end Sunday, August 21th at 11:59 P.M. (Pacific Standard Time).

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Publish your summer-or-other-themed game to Steam Workshop or upload it to the games database before the deadline. You can work as a team or individually. Use blogs to share your work and get feedback as you build your game. If you need models for your game, we've got a summer model pack for you to use for free from Leadwerks Workshop.

Games must have a preview image, title, and contain some minimal amount of gameplay (there has to be some way to win) to be considered entries.  It is expected that most entries will be simple, given the time constraints.

PRIZES: Rather than a competition, this tournamant is a "co-opetition". Everyone who participates gets a prize!

If this is your first game tournament entry, you will receive a cool Leadwerks sticker in the mail.

If this is your second game tournament entry, you'll receive a collection of three limited-edition professionally printed postcards featuring beautiful Leadwerks screenshots. Send them to a friend or put them on the wall.

If this is your third game tournament entry, you'll receive a rockin' Leadwerks T-shirt in the mail.  Wear it to show how cool you really are.

If this is your fourth game tournament entry, you'll receive the new Leadwerks hoodie!  This gorgeous garment makes you look like a Silicon Valley startup geek.  This light jacket is perfect for air-conditioned spaces that are just slightly chilly.

If this is your fifth game tournament entry, you will receive a Steam Controller.  The Steam Controller lets you play your entire collection of Steam games on your TV—even the ones designed without controller support in mind.

Bonus Prize

All participants will receive an 11" x 17" printed poster for the Summer Games 2016 Tournament!  This limited-run item will be printed only once, only for this event.  This is your only chance to get this poster, ever.

Make games and have fun!



My mind is exploding with ideas.
Can we buy the sweatshirt if we want it but it's not our fourth game "co-ompition"? Because that looks amazing and I really want one
Are we able to continue developing an existing project and release the updated content before the deadline as our entry or are only new games allowed as entries?

If your game has been entered already in a previous tournament, it can't be re-re-entered.  If you have just been working on it and haven't released it yet you can enter it as a new game.

Question, for those of us who live over seas(australia) are we eligible for the prizes? and if so do we have to pay shipping? i assume all this has been worked out in previous game tournaments but as this is my first just want to clarify.

Anyways i look forward to participating(i love doing game jams) and hopefully i can pick up enough lua knowledge to put something together lol.

Shipping is free.  It's on me.
Aww yes. Been waiting for this
I'm confused. It says "summer-or-other-themed game", so does that mean it needs to summer-themed or it can be anything?
Can be anything, but it'd be nice to see as many summer-themed games as possible
I just returned to Leadwerks after a long break. Unfortunately I will be away from Civilization during this time. I will save my efforts for a Winter game then. Good luck to you all summer gamers though
Thank You. =)
Maybe a silly and late question ^_^ but considering i already got a game "done" (which was my exam game :) ) and considering i won't be really fully on the laptop for atleast another 4 days (house sitting in a nice place which really motivates to "relax" and all that ) considering i still need to think up a proper idea.. So to my question at last!

Is it oké if i entry as first with my exam game and later for funs entry another proper summer game? (if i can call it that with the time i'll have haha) i wanna stay in the theme but at the same time don't want to miss an entry point :)
Sure, sounds good!
Awesome ^^
would be nice if game worked in game launcher for everyone , spent months on this only to have it black screen on windows 7 HELP:(
