We’ve 2 themes to choose from:
Target audience for game: 3rd level students and educators
The Cybersecurity Gamejam 2021 is being organised as part of the CYBER.EU.VET Erasmus+ project. The main objective of the project is to strengthen the European VET capacity to recognise and manage cybersecurity threats (e. g. phishing attacks, botnets, financial and banking frauds, data fraud et.).
The project will help to improve the skills of VET educators in relation to management of cybersecurity threats, which is very important especially considering their central role in the knowledge transfer of good practices and skills to their students.
Last but not at least, this project will also help to increase the awareness of teachers, students and their families about the importance to recognise such daily risks, which can have both economic and social impact.
Games developed during the Gamejam will be included in the Cybersecurity Awareness Training material developed as part of the project.
Throughout the day we will remain on Zoom/Email to support you during the session. Feel free to log in and out as you please.
Most people are joining the Game Jam as an individual rather than a team. Both welcome!
The submission of games will automatically close at 19:00.
The winning game will be announced at 20.30 on Zoom and the prize will be posted to the winners home (1 x 1forAll voucher).
The winning game maker will be invited to speak at the European Cyber event to showcase their game (optional).
On competition all game makers will be sent a certificate of participation in this European 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.
You use your own tools, laptops, sound equipment, peripherals, software, assets, etc.
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! We need more designers, crafters and makers!
You can use a beginner-friendly game making tool like like Twine where you create interactive stories that you can share and play online - perfect for uploading to itchio.
Another one is FlatGameMaker, a plugin for Unity and also beginner-friendly: https://dreamfeel.itch.io/flatgame
Both of these tools are beginner-friendly.

Nope, let us know when you check-in at registration on Saturday morning (08:30 till 08:59), and let us know what skills you have, and we can form a group in the morning before we announce the theme.
As many as you want, but more than 1, it’s fun to work with a team of people. 😊
