Now more than ever, IndieCade is focused on supporting creativity, connection, and hope for the future. We invite game creators from across the world to join Climate Jam, to explore solutions that can address a rapidly changing world.
We invite developers from across the globe to join, contribute, and virtually connect.
The goals for the jam are to take action and raise solutions. We believe this generation of creators care deeply for our planet and holds the power to inspire while using games as a platform.
IndieCade is pleased to collaborate with the Games For Our Future team. With their incredible experience of running many jams that foster social change and collaboration we are all in the best of hands.
At this moment it is all the more relevant to think about people, nature, and resilience in the face of global crises.
