What is a GameCraft about?
It’s a game jam for people who are interested in game-making to come together under one roof to make games, meet people and generally have fun. GameCraft provides a venue so you can concentrate on making fun games. We also provide food and beverages throughout the day.
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!
Is there an age restriction to participate?
Yes, GameCraft events are all adult events (over 18s) unless specified. Normally when you sign up, you have to agree that you are over 18 before completing your registration.
Do I have to be in a team?
Nope, let us know when you check-in at registration on Saturday morning (09:30-09:59), 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. :-)
What about ownership of the games we create?
All games and content produced during GameCraft events remains the full property of their creators. GameCraft makes no claim to anything participants create. When you take part in GameCraft events you own everything you create.
All trademarks remain property of their respective owners.
Can I play games made at the jam?
Yes; we will try and get folks to upload their games to: https://itch.io/jam/dublin-gamecraft-a-gamejam-yule-never-forget
