Announcing the 4th Clockwork Game Jam Event (2019Q4)


We are now happy to announce our 4th Game Jam event in 2019. This time, let’s try to allow open public voting, we hope more people will participate in this event.

Theme: Robot

Which is your favorite robot? Astro Boy, Arale, Doraemon, Transformers, Bender, Marvin, D2R2, Baymax, WALL-E or the Iron Giant? It’s time to bring your dreams into reality. You can build a robot world, have an adventure with your robot friends, or even fight against the evil robot overlord. Please feel free to blow us away.

This time, many thanks to C9 and M.T Law, we are providing some character designs that you can use in your games if you want.

C9 and M.T Law are great independent artists who created the “Tin Town”. We welcome other artists to contact us to be featured in our future Game Jams.


Tin Town was once a quiet and happy place where Senior Courier Robert has been living in for years until the dark force, Bubble and Iron Ball, infiltrated in. Robert and his assistant Bob have been fighting against the dark force since then. Things are different now. Can they kick the dark force out of town like super hero movies? Or the dark force wins eventually?

Development Environment: any language that runs on GameShell

Specification of the ClockworkPi GameShell device could be found on

Deadline: must submit your game by Jan 12th, 2020; open public voting ends on Jan. 31th, 2020

Every 200 CPI points can exchange one GameShell kit. (CPI points are not redeemable for cash)


I’ll have to pass this time, but for anyone that’s interested and still looking for a software to develop with, GB Studio has just released a new version with some fine new features (additional colors, menus, etc.).
It’s super easy to get started with and a lot of fun (and free)! :smiley:


I may try and get something done this time. Got far too busy to get anything more than splashes and a menu for Q3.

Hardest part for me is coming up with a good idea that isn’t too complicated to complete in the limited time.
