A MAZE. presents

'Games that only make sense when you are stoned' JAM

Hi stoners, How are you? 

Last year in November Thorsten S. Wiedemann invited Paloma Dawkins to join the A MAZE. Cape Town Pop Up at Playtopia in Cape Town. Paloma is working and has released some really trippy VR and game projects. With her art-style, mindtwisting game mechanics she created her own unique signature as game maker and digital artist. So Paloma and I took a taxi from Thambo Airport in Johannesburg to Bannister Hotel (official A MAZE. Hotel) in Braamfontain. On the way to the hotel… it’s a 30min ride and costs 300ZAR (fyi) we’ve been chatting about future projects and Paloma came up with this brilliant idea of making a stoner arcade filled with games for stoners only.  Here we come let's do a game jam to fill an arcade with an old game genre.

Now a few months later and before the A MAZE. / Berlin 2019 - April 10-13, 2019 we wanna make that stoner paradise reality and tease you with our 3rd  A MAZE. Game Jam. 

Paloma Dawkins, Gianluca Pandolfo and Thorsten S. Wiedemann want to invite you to the “Games That Only Make Sense Playing When You Are Stoned Jam” which will be held online from March 15-31, 2019 . All the submitted games will be legally showcased at A MAZE. / Berlin 2019.
