Supporting Game7's First Game Jam
Our team at Rensa Games is excited to announce that the Game7 community has voted to launch its first-ever game jam on our "Showcase" platform! This event is a unique opportunity for developers in both traditional and blockchain game development to come together and collaborate. We look forward to playing innovative and exciting games, and want to thank Game7 for their generous sponsorship of this event.

Game7 is a bold attempt to create and gamify a community passionate about shaping the future of gaming by helping fund builders, empower educators and support creators. Game7 believes that the future of gaming should be owned by the community and welcomes anyone who wants to contribute to the future of sustainable gaming.
Rensa Games is building a unified platform for video game development, distribution, and crowdfunding. We developed Showcase as a unique and powerful tool that hosts game jams and other competitions on-chain with automated features, including:
• Team formation
• Funding prizes
• Submitting entries
• Judging entries
• Prize distribution
Showcase runs competitions efficiently, transparently, and autonomously. Prize pools are visible to all participants in real-time, and are distributed automatically after voting for the jam is complete.
There will be three challenges offered, each targeting game developers with different levels of familiarity with blockchain technology.
Challenge 1 is 🖱️MOUSE ONLY MADNESS!
This challenge is meant for game devs with no previous blockchain knowledge. Create a game with all input done by mouse only! Make an action game, an RPG, a light gun game, and more – everything besides the controls is up to you!
Challenge 2 is 🔗 WEB 2.5 GAMING!
This challenge is meant for developers experienced with the blockchain/crypto space. Make a game featuring at least one blockchain element used in a creative way. These can include smart contracts, currencies, NFTs, and more. It should be relevant within the gameplay/narrative of the game!
Challenge 3 is 🔄 SWAP IT!
This challenge is meant for Web3 developers working on complex topics such as interoperability. Create a game that best demonstrates trading in-game items represented by NFTs across chains. The chains you choose are up to you and your team!
Game7 has generously sponsored each challenge with $3,000 of prizes on offer...
🥇 1st Place: $1,500
🥈 2nd Place: $900
🥉 3rd Place: $600
...for an aggregate prize pool of $9,000. Good luck!
• Registration: Friday, February 3rd - Thursday, February 16th

The Game7 game jam is a fully remote event. All are welcome to participate, provided they follow the Official Rules and Code of Conduct.
