DBX Game Jam – The Games

This year during DBX some of our community got together to form the Desert Bus for Hope 10 Game Jam which resulted in 11 new games. If you’re missing Desert Bus a little bit, here’s a chance to experience Desert Bus in a whole new way. Thanks to everyone who shared their creations with us.

Forza-HorizonHave you ever spent the week of Desert Bus for Hope going, “Man, I just don’t have enough to do.” or “I wish I could spend more time looking at video games.”


Us neither.

But there are people who did! In fact, they decided to get together and spend the week of Desert Bus for Hope 10 engrossed in a Desert Bus themed game jam and they would like to invite you to join.

So, if you’re feeling a hankering to discover the nuts and bolts of game design, or maybe you’re a seasoned game designer and want an excuse to create something Desert Bus related, or maybe you’re just watching Desert Bus for Hope and are *gasp* BORED?!?!? (We forgive you, it’s fine. We’re all friends here.) Consider joining the Desert Bus Game Jam.

You. And other members of the DB community. Everyone welcome.

This event is fan-organized, so it’s not directly affiliated with us, but we’re super happy to promote events organized by our awesome community, and particularly those that involve creating something.

A game jam. You join a team and together you make a game in a very short period of time. In this case, 3 or 6 days.

Like all good things, the internet. Specifically,

Saturday, November 12 at 5pm EST for the first round and Tuesday, November 15, 5pm EST for the second. You can join for one or both rounds.

Join at: If you have questions or concerns, discussion and answers can be found here:

Happy jamming!
