JAM Productions was a computer game development company based in the United States. It is most notable for creating the 1993 first person shooter Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold, and its 1994 sequel, Planet Strike.

The company was founded in 1993 by Jim Row and Mike Maynard, former department heads of Gamer's Edge, who were soon after joined by artist and fellow co-worker Jerry Jones. After the company folded, Maynard later worked for 7th Level, Ion Storm, Third Law Interactive, TKO Software and later id Software (who originally suggested him to Apogee Software in the first place).

The name was created from the initials of the two founders' first names: Jim and Mike.
