We’re so excited to announce Twitch Developer Jam: 2019! This Extension Jam aims to encourage developers to create awesome “game-matched Twitch Extensions” that bring more game content, better functionality, and tailored interactivity to some of our most popular games, like Fortnite, World of Warcraft, and Grand Theft Auto V!

What’s a game-matched Extension? Glad you asked!

Game-matched Extensions are powered by game data to deliver rich, meaningful real-time experiences that prioritize viewer interaction and participation.

Winners and finalists will be awarded from a total prize pool of $60,000 and will receive highlights on TwitchDev Weekly! It’s important to remember that your game-matched Extension needs to be approved by our review team and released by the submission deadline to be eligible to win.
