SpeccyJam - A new retro game jam inspired by the ZX Spectrum begins today!

Finally it's here, a game development jam many of us have been eagerly waiting for since it's first announcement some months ago. A jam so damn awesome that it has an impressive judge panel that are well known in the retro scene. Judges such as Jas Austin who coded the Speccy version of Sega classic Altered, Beast, Colin Jones responsible for Rock Star Ate My Hamster and Clive Townsend produced ninja adventure, Saboteur. It's the Speccy Jam,  in which indie developers from around the world will come together on the 29th August - 5th September to create brand new retro inspired games in the flavour of that great 8-bit system, the ZX Spectrum

As we mentioned on our previous article. The rules state that developers can work alone or with a team and can use any method to develop a ZX Spectrum game on any device or platform. As long as it conforms to a resolution of 256 × 192, use only 15 ZX Spectrum colours listed in the jam and is encouraged to make your game sound like a Spectrum game.

Above all though, your game must work and be completed by the 5th September. So if you're a developer or someone just wanting to play the latest ZX Spectrum style game, make sure to check out the site for the Speccy Jam Here

This is going to be one hell of a speccy spetacular trip, come on devs let's see those awesome Speccy inspired games!
