Who doesn't look forward to Santa Claus who travels on a "bison sleigh"?
GameCraft is back for the end of the year Christmas game jam. Are you ready to make some crazy games, laugh a lot and bring some holiday cheer?
Early Bird tickets are EUR5.00 till November 15th. Normal tickets are EUR10.00.
Registration starts from 08:30 to 09:00, please setup (and help if you are extra early), so we can start on time. :-)
Follow GlobalGameCraft on Twitter for more updates.
It's a game jam for people who are interested in game-making to come together under one roof to make games, meet people and generally have fun. GameCraft provides a venue so you can concentrate on making fun games. We also provide food and beverages throughout the day.
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 bring your own tools, laptops, sound equipment, peripherals, software, assets, etc. We do not provide any equipment.
No, you can make non-digital games like boardgames, card games, RPGs, other types of pervasive games. All you need to do is bring your own craft materials. We don't provide any on the day.
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!
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. :-)
The event takes place in St. Laurence's Church (left from the entrance).

A little bit of wind doesn't stop GameCraft on Saturday, but seriously, thank you to everyone who made it though. It was some storm, and from me to you... that's where the idea for the theme, Code Red, came from the red alert signal (Met Éireann). Although it can also be red for Santa, or a red button... so many possibilities!
Hence the introduction of the constraint of "One Finger" which led to much groaning from around the room. That certainly brought a smile to Mick's face as we raised the challenge of the theme.
After a number of enquiries about what constitute as "one finger" so as not the break the rules, everyone busily went ahead with their research or soldering as the case maybe with Owen. :-)
And the jam ends, time to clear the room to make way for playing games (and to make it easier to tidy up later).
“Code Red: Corridor Simulator (Christmas Edition)” is complete! Yay! LMAO :D #gamecraft— Anthony Cosgrave (@anthonycosgrave) December 5, 2015
Missing a few teams, can people share photos of the missing teams with us and I will add them in this post.
