SideFX Announced the Houdini Game Jam 2021

Everyone is invited to participate and use Houdini to make games for a chance to win game dev prizes.   

Houdini Game Jam will take place over the course of one week from December 3rd to December 10th, 2021. The game jam will begin when the theme is revealed via live stream on SideFX’s Twitch channel at 11 am PDT on December 3rd. Game jammers will then have one week to build their games and submit them to the ITCH.IO page before the deadline of 5 pm PDT on December 10th. 

Game jammers are encouraged to use the hashtag #HoudiniGameJam21 for social media posts about their game development. The eligible game entries will be played by the judges and prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winning teams. 

SideFX is providing temporary Houdini Indie licenses for use by game devs during the jam. You may fill this form to receive it. 

All of the eligible game entries will be played and judged by a panel of Houdini, 3D art, and game dev professionals.
