What is Chillennium?

Chillennium is an annual 48 hour student game jam that takes place at Texas A&M University. Organized for students, by students, this unique event brings participants from universities across the nation together to collaborate with experienced industry professionals and compete for awesome prizes! Teams ranging from 1 to 4 participants will be given a common theme and will then have 48 hours to plan, design, and develop a video game from scratch. Artists, programmers, and designers are all invited! No previous knowledge about games is needed, just a passion for creation!

Games will be judged by a team of industry professionals and sponsors. Judging will begin immediately following the game jam's ending. Games will be ranked on a scale from 0 to 5 for their Innovation, Quality, and Completeness in the categories of Programming, Art, Design, and Sound for a total maximum score of 60. The three teams with the highest overall scores will be awarded the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for Best Overall Game. Additional prizes will be awarded to the teams with the highest individual scores in Programming, Art, Design, and Sound. To encourage innovation, there is also an award for VR.

When & Where?

Chillennium 2022 will take place at the Texas A&M Hildebran Equestrian Center. It will start on the afternoon of Friday, April 1,st at 4pm and end 48 hours later on Sunday, April 3rd at 4pm.
