Game Jam+ 2019 (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, from 19:00 on Friday to 17:00 on Sunday.
Just like the game jams you know, jammers will have 48h to design and develop a game FROM SCRATCH! They will have the 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, the 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 voting 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 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!
For the Dublin Branch of the Game Jam+, and thanks to our incredible sponsors, prizes will include the following:
1st Place: 2 months of online acceleration and mentorship with industry experts + one person will be chosen to represent their team in the grand finale in Brazil
2nd Place: Games Guild of Dungeoneering (Steam) and The Darkside Detective, provided by the Irish studios Gambrinous and Spooky Doorway.
3rd Place: Game Eliosi's Hunt Keys (Steam).
