Game Jam

A Game Jam unites developers, graphic artists, game designers or newcomers from different working areas and challenges them to develop a completely new game. Biggest challenge: The lack of time. You have only 48 hours for the complete development process – after that period of time, your game has to be finished.

InnoGames Game Jam

Besides the rooms that we offer you, we will also care of your stamina. Next to the traditional pizza, we provide lots of snacks and drinks, including tons of energy drink, so you can turn the night into day! In case you want to sleep, you should bring you own sleeping bag. The same applies for your needed hardware.

Game Jam V WinnerThemes search

As every Jam has a theme, you are invited to suggest one. Our last themes were: “Lost”, “Space”, “Survival”, “black / white”, “heartbeat” (global game jam) or “violence”. Other Game Jams had, for example, themes like: “you only get one”, “10 seconds”, “minimalism”, “Evolution”.

We are looking forward to your email and hopefully to see you soon.

It’s time again! – InnoGames invites you to Game Jam

Finally, one of my favorite events is back up: The InnoGames Game Jam! For the sixth time we gather professionals and beginners of game development and have them create completely new games within 48 hours. Divided into teams, everyone who has the desire to create games is invited: from game designers to graphic artists, sound specialists and programmers.

There are no technical limitations to what is possible – You decide which platform you want to program or what language you use for it. The only requirement is your software must free to use and freely available. During our past Game Jams we already had a lot of cool games emerging. The winners of the fourth Game Jam created the entertaining Jump & Run „Hans and Jamal“, which you can try for yourself here. Last Game gave birth to the Tower offense strategy game “Frankenstein”.

Now you wonder where the whole event is to take place? As with the last Game Jams, we will once again open the hallowed halls of our Hamburg office and sponsor with greasy food and lots of energy drinks. The only thing you need is your hardware, lots of creative ideas and of course perseverance, because you will hardly sleep!

The Game Jam will take place between June 21 and 23: Gotten interested? Then just send us a mail to gamejam@innogames.de with a short introduction of yourself and an explanation why exactly you would like to participate in the Game Jam. We look forward to your applications!

4th InnoGames Game Jam: Developing Games in 48 Hours

Together with developers, graphic artists and game designers, you will face the challenge of developing a game about a given topic in only 48 hours. What type of game will be totally up to you: Do you want to create a jump & run? Go for it! Are you more into action games? Also fine! Have you ever tried developing a pure text adventure? Now is the perfect time! The participants of the last InnoGames Game Jam created 14 games with a “survival” theme. However, a Game Jam is not only about developing, designing and coding nonstop for 48 hours. Having fun together and exchanging with others is also a part of a Game Jam, of course, as well as lots of energy drinks 😉 You can read in our corporate blog what it was like to take part in our 3rd InnoGames Game Jam.

The 4th InnoGames Game Jam will again take place at our Hamburg offices. Besides InnoGames employees, the event is also open for external guests. Of course, we provide attendees with free food and drinks. Additionally, we have some cozy sleeping places in our office for you and your sleeping bags.
