What is Nordic Game Jam?
Nordic Game Jam is a game jam, which means you get a full weekend to make your own game based(-ish) on a theme.
This means you can expect 48 hours of brainstorming, experimenting, coding, drawing and playing together. You get the opportunity to work and have fun with other game developers from around the globe. And the result is having your very own game at the end of the weekend.
How is Nordic Game Jam different from other Game Jams?
We are an entirely non-profit and volunteer-run and have been doing that since 2006. (Check out the lovely organisers). Over the years the game jam has been filled with talks, workshops, portfolio-review and many other activities for the participants.
Nordic Game Jam is simply not only about making games, we want to gather people who have love for games and a strong support for diversity and inclusion in games. We want to create a welcoming and safe environment where we can get to learn each other and grow! You can read our Code of Conduct here.
Who can join?
Professionals, hobbyists, and students are all welcome at Nordic Game Jam. If you like to program, draw, design, brainstorm, produce or make sound, you will fit right in. If it’s your first time jamming, there is boundless help to be found from speakers, volunteers and other jammers. A big focus for Nordic Game Jam is to welcome everyone who is interested in games. Any level of experience.
