This jam is now over. It ran from 2022-09-15 21:00:00 to 2022-09-18 21:00:00. View 17 entries

The theme of 2022 is PATTERNS! 


We welcome you to join the online Quantum Game Jam, an event where you will collaborate with game developers, quantum physicists, visual artists, musicians, coders and others in order to develop games that connect to quantum physics either through real machinery or simply thematically -- the theme of the event is revealed on Friday! 
Materials about both game development and quantum physics as well as the event itself are provided for anyone interested, but do not feel obligated to study them! No prerequisites required, merely the curiosity and an interest in quantum games!

Attendance certificates

You may also earn a certificate for attending the talks related to the jam and for joining a team that publishes a game on Sunday! Join the talks, answer a few questions with your name and email and we will send you a QWorld certificate!  There will be preparative talks on Friday (14:00 UTC+3), one talk Friday evening and more on Saturday  (12:00 UTC+3). See the schedule below and come listen for more info at the event! Full info found again at the Materials -folder under Talk Questionnaires.

Recordings of the talks will be available through https://www.youtube.com/qworld19

THE IDEA OF THE QUANTUM GAME JAM

You join our jam on Friday, we tell a bit about quantum physics and games and then reveal the THEME of the jam. After this you have a little time to brainstorm a game idea around this theme and propose it to others and/or just listen to the ideas of others. We then help you find a team, create a channel for you and off you go! You have until Sunday to develop the game together with your team and present it then to the world.  All games will be published through this itch.io event page together with an accompanying video and screen shots. A more detailed schedule is presented below. 

This in in particular we are collaborating with the Quantum Game Hackathon 2022, that is starting later this month -- by further developing your jam game, you are able to participate the hackathon and aim at the prices!
