What is a Game Jam?

Game Jam brings together all types of game creators to build new games from scratch. Jammers typically work in small teams of 2-8 people during the event, the teams can be formed at the event or before it. The theme of the game jam is announced on Friday night and participants try to produce a game that fits the theme before the deadline. Making a complete game with just 48 hours and limited resources sounds hard, but participants have unlimited creativity with them and everybody is helping each other to reach their goal.

Game jam gathers the community of game developers, amateurs, professionals and students of any skill level to create, collaborate and practice their game making ability. Jam atmosphere is full of creativity and new ideas, it encourages jammers to look outside of their comfort zone and create something amazing and unique. The Finnish Game Jam is an annual event that gathers over 1000 jammers and organizers around Finland.
