Want to make something special this Techweek? How about a game?!
Join the inaugural Game Jam Aotearoa, a fun and informative game creation event for people from any creative or digital sector to 'get involved and see what you can create in just one weekend'!
Think of it as a fun hackathon focused on game development, around a specific theme that no-one knows until the event starts.
You don't need to be a coder to take part - writers, artists, animators, musicians, designers and more are all welcome. Learn and contribute any way you can to help build something fun.
Game Jam Aotearoa 2020 is a nation-wide,virtual, collaborative event to inspire and grow innovation, experimentation, and collaboration in games.
Beginning on Friday evening at 6pm, with video keynotes and advice from leaders in the game development industry, the fun really starts with the announcement of this year's theme, kept secret until the last second!
These events are awesome for fostering friendships, increasing confidence and creating opportunities within the game dev communities. You get to challenge yourself and your creativity, while you explore new roles, and develop and refine your skills.
Please note: This is a virtual event, so teams can meet up to collaborate, but due to Covid-19 there is no physical Game Jam base this year.
Communications will be via video conferencing and other channels, stay tuned for further info.
There are over $1500 worth of prizes and giveaways up for grabs!
In order to be eligible for the prizes you must be currently residing in New Zealand. Participants must be a minimum of 18 years of age.
