Game Jam: Get a Sneak Peek of the Newest Gaming Platform

Peter Jaschkowske, a German game developer and co-founder at NFT-MAKER, has talked about the upcoming game jam that aims to celebrate the impending game launchpad initiative. 


Hello, I'm Peter Jaschkowske. I'm a game developer and a co-founder at NFT-MAKER. After finishing my Bachelor's degree in early 2022, I now lead the Game Launchpad project full time. I created some of my first games on the side, which led me to work with larger projects. After finding my success in game development, I got invited to exhibit one of the games at Play 2017 in Hamburg. I advocate making NFT games accessible to advance user experience so that they can be licensed and sold outright within secondary markets by the rightful owner. In my private life, I like studying Japanese. 

The Idea that Stands Behind the Jam

In the world of gaming, there are a few constants. One is that game developers are always pushing the envelope to create new and innovative experiences for gamers. Another is that game jams are a great way to foster creativity and collaboration among developers and players. To celebrate our forthcoming game launchpad initiative everyone is invited to join us with some game jamming action. 

We are all about promoting games to simply entertain. Our model will follow a new non-play-to-earn concept in which developers are not required to add any incentivization, making games available for pure gameplay. This concept promotes games as just being about having some good times without worrying about earning a token or how it will turn out. We believe this is a meaningful change needed so NFT games can become even more accessible than before and provide a fun and creative environment.  

The three winners of this game jam will walk away with the following prizes:

  • Prize 1. Graphics Cards: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 GAMING OC 8GB V2 
  • Prize 2. Monitor: AOC Q27G2U/BK 27 inch, 1440p, 144hz
  • Prize 3. Mouse:  Logitech G603 

The NFT-MAKER game jam event is an excellent opportunity for developers to showcase their skills and connect with potential partners. With access to NFTs, game developers have access to amazing games, so this is a golden opportunity for anyone looking to get their foot in the door of NFT gaming. The event will take place during the launch week of our game launchpad demo, and it will be a great chance for developers to get their games noticed by the right people.  So mark your calendars - the game jam starts on the 10th of July, 2022! 

The Game Jam: Theme and Planning

The theme of this game jam will remain a secret until the day before. We want participants to explore what they can do with their creativity - but there's one thing that all developers should start doing: start brainstorming now! The game jam will also be a great way for game lovers and NFT enthusiasts to come together and explore all the exciting possibilities that lie ahead in the world of gaming. Sometime around the game jam event, we will be showcasing the demo version of our brand new venture, the game launchpad, which will allow community members to purchase games as NFTs at a discounted price before they are released. 

Game Launchpad: How to Get Your Hands on NFTs for the Newest Games

One of our visions for the future is to prepare for crowdfunding events (following the successful game launchpad demo and game jam). Crowdfunding efforts will allow our fans to get their hands on the products they want as early as possible, but it will also help raise funds for developers to continue developing innovative and exciting new games. Such possibilities will allow gamers to pre-purchase NFTs, which will provide them with unique ownership rights over their gaming assets. Generally speaking, not only does this allow early gratification for game purchases but also ensures authenticity. 

When a user wants to access a game, they will need to have the relevant NFTs in their wallet. These digital tokens can be bought, sold, or gifted at their discretion, giving users complete control over their gaming experience. Even though these NFTs are traded between users, game developers can still receive royalties from any secondary sales that may occur. This ensures that the developers remain fairly compensated for their hard work while also opening up new opportunities for gamers to get the most out of their favorite games. Whether you're an experienced gamer or just starting on your journey into the virtual world, having access to NFTs unlocks endless possibilities for creating an immersive and enjoyable experience for everyone. 

We believe that NFTs could create a new way for people to access and own video games. This would allow players more ownership over their games while still providing revenue for developers. If a player no longer wanted a game, they could sell the NFT to recoup some of the cost. This model could create a new level of transparency and trust between developers and customers. 


With this project, we demonstrate our vision for a new way to distribute games through Access-NFTs. We want to stay away from the usual "play to earn" games and hyped-up land sales within this project model. We hope to provide a way for indie developers to monetize small games, just like those made during this competition. We instantly share the news on our social media channels, so stay tuned and don't forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.  

Thanks for reading, and I hope this piece helped explain how the game launchpad system works. To conclude, the benefits of NFTs are two-fold: they give players more ownership over their games while still providing revenue for developers. What's not to love about that?
