GitHub has announced the 5th edition of its Game Off game jam, hosted on from November 1st to December 1st 2017.

GitHub Game off is a month long game jam that encourages people to create games using open source engines, tools, etc. People are free to use closed-source engines as well.

With Game Pencil Engine now being an open source engine we will like to enccourage you to join the game jam using it.
