The "very kiwi, very winter, very annual, very shared" KiwiJam will take place from July 21-23 this year.

The 48 hour game jam will be held in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch.

The rules are simple: you just have to come along and make a game in the theme announced, or work on your own existing project.

You can enter as a pre-formed team, as a solo competitor, or LFG (looking for group) and the organisers will help you find a team.

There will be a cap on the number of competitors and there is an entry fee of NZ $20 to cover food and spot prizes.
