invites you to join
the biggest game-making event in the world!

On the 26th - 28th January 2018 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 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 2018 is held at the Inland Norway University of applied sciences. We’ll be welcoming you by the front entrance to the main campus building.

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).


Martin Jonasson aka. Grapefrukt has been making games since Windows was for Workgroups and has somehow done it for a living for the past five years. Once, he made a game called Rymdkapsel that turned out pretty well.


Martin Fasterholdt is a gameplay designer at Playdead, where he worked on the game INSIDE. In his spare time, he frequently takes on obscure challenges in games. For example, trying to play Dark Souls without using the analog stick to move.
