What is a Game Jam?

The 4th Winter Game Jam is open to everyone who likes games and wants to create, test and talk about games. Starting on Friday the topic will be revealed to all participants at the same time. Then, after the ideas are pitched, team will be built around ideas and games are to be created. Finally, on Sunday, the projects are presented and can be played and tested. There is also a user voting to honor the best games in various categories where everybody can vote - so bring your friends and family ;) The game jam is not restricted to game designers or programmers, but is open to everyone who wants to build games. Each team is in desperate need for visual and audio artist, animation experts, web page writers, storytellers, testers, etc.

99% digital #klujam!

Due to the second lockdown we have decided to go 99% digital with our game jam. Please join in and register!

How so? We'll provide an online meeting for the topic announcement and the project pitching as well as for the presentation of games. Throughout the game jam we'll stream & code at the same time and we invite all of you to do the same! Using the Discord server we can stay in contact and have our coffee talks or the first morning beer together, just like in the good old times ☕

Connect!

We encourage heavy use of our digital communication channels including our
