We the Teachers of Game Design and Technology (GDT) and Interaction Design (IXD) at Chalmers University and Gothenberg University in Lindholmen, present you with this first Game Jam of 2023. In this game jam you get to make a game based on a certain theme in just one weekend! After submitting your game there will be a panel of judges who will rate and vote on the games.
Game jams are a fun way to challenge yourself, meet other devs and talk about your games and their progress. And of course the best part is that in the end you will have made and finished a game that you can share with friends, family and your fellow developers.
Are you new to game dev and don't think you can finish a game in such a short amount of time? Well give it a shot anyway, it's worth a try and you'll probably learn a lot!
Join our discord server for any notifications about the jam and to meet other participants and hype yourself up before the event!
Please note there are no limits to the type of game you can create for the jam, as long as it fits the theme! Some examples could be computer games, vr games, ar games, boardgames, cardgames, an interactive experience, interactive stories etc.
Also note that if you cannot make the first day it is ok, you have all weekend to make your games! To participate in the jam please create or log in to your account here on itch.io and sign up for the jam. Join our discord server for updates!
Anyone and everyone are welcome to the game jam!
