GENERAL INFORMATION This event is organized by Arctic Game Lab. The event will run simultaneously in five Swedish cities at the same time (Boden, Luleå, Piteå, Skellefteå and Umeå).
Are you are an idea person, illustrator, programmer, 3D-artist, sound designer, musician or just have a general interest in creating stuff? We would love for you to come! During the event you will participate in a team that creates a game (analog or digital doesn't matter) that hopefully is playable when the event is over.
The purpose of the event is to have fun and get to know other game developers. Computers and other equipment must be brought.
