Hi folks, it’s jam time again! We are going to run yet another hybrid event after the success of Galway Game Jam 19.


  • Thanks to support from Ardán and GTC for helping us realise this venue-based jam.
  • Super thanks to GameCraft (supported by Coding Grace) for sponsoring our post-jam drinks and food. This is a delightful way to wrap up the jam, giving people a chance to catch up, exchange stories and connect. This would not have be possible without the generous support from our geeky event friends at Coding Grace and GameCraft.

Theme: Propinquity

Yes, what a fun word to say! Pro-pin-quit-y... makes me feel like I'm smart, and now you too! But what does it mean? Propinquity describes nearness, and is a term used to describe the social connections that happen due to proximity.

The propinquity effect is the tendency for people to form friendships or romantic relationships with those whom they encounter often, forming a bond between subject and friend.
