A 2-day game making event.
Attempt to make a game or prototype in a super short timeframe.
This game making even aims to be a creative, collaborative and welcoming event. We are open to people of all levels of experience and welcome different types of games; video games, board games, card games, table top games etc.
Organisers will assist team formation on the first day.
Games made at the event will be played by everyone at the end of the event, so people can see what everyone has been working on and get a chance to play each others games. We may assist people wishing to order food as a group at the end.
Day 1 – Sat 21th – 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
Day 2 – Sun 22th – 10:00 am – 6:00 pm (4pm submission time.)
Theme/Limitation: TBA – Please discuss on discord/facebook!
Discord server: https://discord.gg/ah4WcdW
We will announce the theme on Saturday morning that will serve as a focus or design pillar for your game. Themes and limitations are great for your creativity – they remove the problem of having a “blank page” of infinite possibility. Feel free to interpret the theme is your own way. Use this as a core part of your game, or at the very least a starting point for your game idea. Hopefully, this focus will serve to channel your creativity and experimentation.
Check our facebook event page and our discord server on the lead up to the Galway Game Jam 14 for updates!
We will not be providing food; please arrange food and snacks for yourself. Our venue is located in the city centre, so there are plenty of options for you to get a bite to eat. There are also the Saturday markets and Sunday markets if you are up for a short walk!
There are some kitchen facilities available. You are permitted to eat & drink at the gamejam and are responsible for cleaning up after yourself – thank you!
Organisers and volunteers, identified by “STAFF” badges and during announcements, will be around during the event. Feel free to ask them any questions and bring any issues to their attention.
