Galway Game Jam 9 is happening at the PorterShed, Galway 10-11 March 2018. The event starts at 0900 10 March.
It's also our 5th Birthday Party! So they might be cake, that might also be a lie. You'll have to attend to jam to find out. We're running a 24 hour jam this time, with a break overnight in between. We will probably use the last hour as a showcase (2000-2100 on Sunday). Join us and make a game in a 24 hour jam, learn new skills and meet people interested in game development and, above all, have fun!
We’ll have some food later in the event as always – please do let us know if you have any dietary requirements because we want to include you.
Galway Game Jams are not for profit events. The ticket money is used to purchase food and pay for venue costs (eg a cleaner after the event).
9am to 9pm Saturday 10th March and 9am to 9pm Sunday 11 March.

No, not at all! The gamejam is for everyone from complete beginners to professional game devs. If you’ve never done anything like this before that’s totally okay. We would recommend having a look around the interenet for some tutorials in whatever aspect of gamedev interests you the most before the event, or attending some local game dev workshops – consider bringing a friend to work with! We will try to accommodate everyone as best as we can. Keep in mind there are some lovely folks attending these gamejams that would be happy to help a fellow jammer who’s gotten stuck.
Everything! You can use the Galway Game Jam to make any type of game.

Yes but we’d like you to observe some rules. Please use the bins for any rubbish you have. Please don’t eat or drink anything that smells strongly in the main game jam area. Please tidy up after yourself.
Pretty much all of them! The aim is to make stuff and have fun making. We encourage everyone to plan for a (very) small game. For example, a game that a single person can play in their web browser and complete in a few minutes.
These skills can be handy, but by no means definitive:
Of course you can always use the gamejam to try something new, and I totally encourage it!
