On the 20th - 22nd January 2017 we'll gather again for the biggest game making event in the world. During one weekend, over 200 game developers, game students and game/tech enthusiasts will gather and go together to create great game ideas. During the event we will brainstorm and pitch ideas, divide into teams, and create as many games as possible within 48 hours.
Everyone is welcome, we need all kinds of skills - from programmers to game designers, artists and musicians. People with no previous experience are also encouraged to join us, share their perspective and learn more about game development. If this sounds like fun, check out our signup section!
Global Game Jam Hamar 2017 is held at the Hedmark University College.
We’ll be welcoming you by the front entrance to the main campus
During the whole event, the school will be open to the participants. You may come and go as you wish, and if you don't want to leave at all that is fine. The location will be open 24-7 with guards available the whole time. There will be sleeping areas and food available at all times (bring your own sleeping bag and ground pads/sleeping mats).
Nicki will kick off our event on Friday 20th of January. She is a California based voice over artist, known primarily for her work in video games. A few of her most recognizable roles include "Lili" in Doublefine's Psychonauts, "Lilly" in Telltale Games' The Walking Dead, and the incredibly well behaved children in The Sims 2 and 3.
