social-header.pngThe Indies VS Gamers event is an upcoming, multi-part game jam hosted by Game Jolt and supported by YouTube Let's Players PewDiePie, Markiplier, and Jacksepticeye.

It invites people of all skill levels to create a game in 72 hours. Games must feature a scoreboard and be based on a theme that will be revealed on the first day. The game jam portion begins July 17th and ends on July 20th.

In the week following, everyone will have the chance to play and rate the games submitted. Game Jolt will host competitions for the top 5 games and PewDiePie, Markiplier, and Jacksepticeye will play them on their YouTube channels.

The last game jam Game Jolt ran in partnership with YouTube star PewDiePie resulted in nearly a thousand new games and over 1.5 million downloads. That's a lot of games and a lot of publicity if you're an aspiring game designer!
