What is a BYOG?
BYOG (Build Your Own Game) is an annual game jam where game developers from all over the country come together to make a game within a limited amount of time, based on a set of themes. Starting in 2010, BYOG is the oldest game jam organized every year in India and has a rich history of recognizing and encouraging game development talent from the country. Past winners have gone on to win multiple international awards, launch successful game development companies, and make great games and careers.
There are many reasons why you should participate in the BYOG:

Get your ideas validated and evaluated by an incredibly experienced jury.
Get honest, constructive feedback on your ideas.

Team up with your friends and foes to celebrate an exciting gamedev weekend.
