Open Game Jam

29. September 2017 - 1. October 2017

| Free
Want to get together with a bunch of creative and talented people and create an awesome game? Want to try out some new and whacky stuff and have a lot of fun? Well then look no further!
Come and join us at the first Interdisciplinary Game Jam organized by TU Graz in co-operation with Game Development Graz.


Here you have one weekend to come up and realize an idea for a game! You can either try it by yourself or work in a team to complement your skills and create your vision.
What makes this game jam special is the focus on interdisciplinary work – people from all fields of studies (TU, KFU, FH etc) are welcome to join and encouraged to work together!

Game jams are a wonderful place to learn how to create games from scratch. You are invited to create games together from people from all different disciplines (programming, art, audio, management, testing…) and with various backgrounds and levels of expertise (industry experts, students, newbies). Have you never developed a game before? Don’t worry! This is the perfect place for you to dive into your first game dev experience!

A special workshop on Game Development with Unity will be offered as preparation before noon on September 29, 2017.
