What is Stealthjam?

Stealthjam is the world’s first global stealth game jam. Show up by yourself, or with a group of friends, and spend the next 48 hours by torchlight creating new kinds of stealth gameplay.

Why a “stealth” game jam?

We love stealth, and want to see stealth gameplay explored more! Stealth is about so much more than sneaking through shadows, hiding behind boxes, or donning a disguise. We’re beginning to see indie developers take stealth to new and interesting places with games like MonacoMark of the Ninja and Gunpoint – but it’s time to dig even deeper.

What kind of exploration are we talking about?

We’ll let 2012’s stealth game developers give you an idea!

“I’d like to play something that gets more into the psychology of the people hunting you.”
-Tom Francis, Gunpoint

“Hiding your motives, goals, and loyalties is an equally interesting form of stealth.”
-Nels Anderson, Mark of the Ninja

“…The thrill of outsmarting your pursuers and the fear of being caught.”
-Andy Schatz, Monaco

You can find more inspiration in our Trade Secrets Stealth Interview Series.

  1. I\’d love to see another event in Melbourne next year, too, if there\’s others interested.

    🙂 Hope the event in Sydney was a great success.
