Here’s a sample of testimonials from some pirates of the past:
Making games in a world lost in time and bursting with exotic life was an experience beyond my wildest imagination. It was life-changing and humbling to watch the other game developers under pressure produce magical, innovate games using tricks that I’ve never seen before.

For a game jam that takes place on boats in Thailand Pirate Jam is brilliantly organized.
In fact for any jam, Pirate Jam runs impressively smoothly.

Pirate Jam is a one-of-a-kind experience that manages to blend sailing and adventuring with intense game development, making it the most enjoyable game jam I’ve ever taken part in. Having been to the event every year since it started and seeing how it has developed, I can’t wait to see what’s next.
