N64brew Game Jam 2021

It’s back for the second year in a row, the N64 Game Jam 2021 hosted by N64brew! The one last year had a great turnout with 14 submissions and five winners. This year it will be running from when the theme is announced on the 9th of October until the deadline on the 8th of December 2021. The judges will then announce the winners on the 12th of December.

Like last year, I will go through each of the entries to show how they play.

Signing up

Get familiar with the discord channel and use this form. You can find a team to work with on the Discord, or simply find out more about the rules.


The theme for the game jam 2021 has been revealed! It is “Control”! It is up to contestants to interpret what that means and implement it into their game.


There’s a different set of judges this time, and here they are:

  • Giles Goddard (Mario 64, Star Fox 64, 1080 Snowboarding)
  • Kaze Emanuar (Super Mario 64 modder)
  • LuigiBlood (64DD expert)
  • Samuel “Kaiser” Villarreal (Nightdive Studios, Turok remasters)
  • Buu342 (N64brew discord admin)


The game jam will be donating the pot of money to a charity instead of sending it to the winner. However, the winner will be able to choose which charity the prize money goes to. The current total is $100 but it is open to donations from a generous public.

More to come!

We’re still in the early stages of the 2021 game jam, so keep your eyes peeled for updates!
