What is a game jam?

A game jam is a hackathon for video games. It is a gathering of people for the purpose of planning, designing, and creating one or more games within a short period, usually ranging between 24 and 72 hours, and some even longer.

Do I need experience to participate?

No experience is required, but work is mostly self-directed and requires a certain degree of self-commitment. We encourage attendees to come in with a basic set of skills or go through some tutorials before the event. Alternatively you can also choose to download tutorial projects from the game engine of your choosing.
