GameCraft Foundation is delighted to support Game Jam+ Dublin.
Game Jam+ 2019 will begin - The game developing world cup!
With almost 40 jam sites participating in 8 countries and 4 continents the 3rd edition of the world's biggest competitive-location based game jam is coming to shake things up in the indie game developing industry!
Is your body ready?
The FIRST STAGE will happen between August 2nd and August 4th.
Just like the game jams you know, jammers will have 48h to design and develop a game FROM SCRATCH! They will have support of awesome mentors during this process and at the end of it, jammers will have to pitch their projects to a group of judges - just like they would for a publisher or investor! From there we'll GJ+ 2019 first batch of finalists.
Yes you heard it right, first batch. The other teams that didn't quite manage to secure their spot as finalists with the judge's choice will have a second chance through the ONLINE POPULAR VOTE. The vote period will last for a whole month after the jam, and then we'll select one extra team per jam site. Now to the next level!
The SECOND STAGE is the moment where all the finalists from each jam site will learn from seasoned developers - of many different backgrounds and areas - how to better and improve their projects, through online workshops and personal mentoring!
And those that didn't manage to be selected as finalists? Don't worry about a thing, all jammers will have free access to some of the workshops as well!
In November we'll have the FINALE in Rio de Janeiro, where we'll bring all the finalists and organizers together and host an amazing festival, with awards and activities involving many categories!
Prizes will include acceleration, one person of the winning team will be chosen by the jury to go to the grand finale in Brazil and much more yet to be announced.
So what are you waiting for? Bring your friends and start a new Game Jam+!
Be our +1!
Mick and I dropped into Game Plus Dublin to see what's happening at Pulse College on Sunday. I took photos and videos of some of the juror playthroughs, all the pitches and of course, the winners.
A congrats to the winners (good luck deciding who's going to Brazil), to everyone who participated (there were 7 games made in total over the weekend), to everyone involved including volunteers and jurors and, last but not least... Jairo, for making all of this happen for the first time Dublin.
