But what is a game jam?

A game jam is an event for people to make games based on a theme (announced at the beginning of the jam) within a given period of time. It can be 8 hours or even up to 24 hours.

Do I need to bring anything?

You bring your own tools, laptops, sound equipment, peripherals, software, assets, etc. We do not provide any equipment.

Is it all about digital games?

No, you can make non-digital games like boardgames, card games, RPGs, other types of pervasive games. All you need to do is bring your own craft materials. We don’t provide any on the day.

Am I able for a game jam?

YES! You like games, and having fun. You don’t have to be a programmer, if you can draw, tell stories, make music, and more… come along!

Do I have to be in a team?

Nope, let us know when you check-in at registration on Saturday morning (08:30 till 08:59), and let us know what skills you have, and we can form a group in the morning before we announce the theme.

How many can we have in a team?

As many as you want. :-)

Where is DIT Grangegorman?

The event takes place in St. Laurence’s Church (left from the entrance).
