Join Game Jam Aotearoa, a fun and informative game creation event for people from any creative or digital sector to 'get involved and see what you can create in just one weekend'! 

You don't need to be a coder to take part - writers, artists, animators, musicians, designers and more are all welcome. Learn and contribute any way you can to help build something fun.

Game Jam Aotearoa 2023 is a nation-wide, virtual, collaborative event to inspire and grow innovation, experimentation, and collaboration in games. 

Beginning on Friday evening at 6pm, with video keynotes and advice from leaders in the game development industry, the fun really starts with the announcement of this year's theme, kept secret until the last second!

These events are awesome for fostering friendships, increasing confidence and creating opportunities within the game dev communities. You get to challenge yourself and your creativity, while you explore new roles, and develop and refine your skills.

Please note: This is primarily a virtual event that encourages collaboration across the country, however teams can meet up to collaborate in person if they choose to.

In addition to the fun of making a game, we also have prizes to give away!

In order to be eligible for the prizes you must be currently residing in New Zealand and be 18 years or older.
