THE THEME IS:
YOU CAN'T DO IT ALONE


Bonfire jam is a jam presented by Spelkollektivet, a co-living space for game developers in Sweden. Spelkollektivet has existed since 2017, and is made up of a diverse group of developers from around the globe. At Spelkollektivet, everything that you could possibly need is included in the rent. That’s right, cooked meals, a fully furnished room, an office space, coffee, toiletpaper, and utilities are all included in the rent. So the rent must be expensive, right? Wrong! Take a look at prices and information here: https://www.spelkollektivet.com/prices/



So… “What is the catch?” you might ask… There is none! Spelkollektivet allows you to live with other awesome and inspiring game developers, without the distraction of having to cook meals and go to the store. Of course, you can still do all that stuff if you want! Does this sound interesting to you? Fill out the form on the website, and come live with us for a while! Now, onto the jam. 




Bonfire jam is a 48 hour online game jam, open to anyone who likes making games. Never made a game before? No problem, a game jam is the perfect opportunity to learn. You will be given a theme, and you can choose to either ignore it or incorporate it into your game. To get the maximum “jamming-experience”, we recommend utilizing the theme! But whatever floats your boat! We at the house will also be participating and streaming the jam/theme announcement, so you can get a peek into the goings on here at the house. We'll also be streaming your games once the jam is over!


Can I work with a team? 

Yes! But to be eligible for the prize (more about the prize below), you can’t be more than 4 people on a team. You can join our discord to find a team and chat about the jam!

Can I use pre-made assets?

Sure, but please credit them in the description of your game. The same goes for pre-existing code-libraries or template projects.

When is the theme announced?

The theme will be announced via the livestream on 28th of August, 19:00 / 7 PM CET.


We at Spelkollektivet have assembled a fine panel of developers who will pick their favorite games. The teams who made these games will be invited to come live at Spelkollektivet for FREE! That’s right, 2 months of free living (includes accommodation, office space, food and more) in the idyllic Swedish country-side where you can focus on your projects without any hassle. In order to be eligible for the prize, you can’t have more than 4 people on the team, you can't be a current or former member of the house, and you also have to be 18 or older. It’s of course totally okay if you can’t accept this once in a lifetime-opportunity, and just want to participate and make a game for fun!
