Why Are We Organizing This?

In a time when some popular game jams restrict the use of AI tools, we believe it’s crucial to provide a platform specifically dedicated to showcasing the incredible possibilities AI offers game developers.

We want to see these jams thrive and empower indie developers with the tools they need to boost productivity and unlock their full potential.

What Are AI Tools?

AI tools, particularly generative ones like Stable Diffusion, open up a whole new world of possibilities in game development.

From accelerated workflows to in-game features, you can harness the power of AI for texture generation, lifelike AI non-player characters (NPCs), and realistic text-to-speech functionality.
