IGJAM #13: The InnoGames Game Jam returns
Thursday, October 13, 2022 — Eleven years after its premiere and five years after IGJAM #12, the 13th InnoGames Game Jam will take place from November 11 - 13, 2022. The latest edition of the popular game development event once again promises sleepless nights, endless pizza, creative excellence and lots of fun. Registration is now open. Participation - either online or on-site - is free of charge.
Game development in turbo mode: At the 13th InnoGames Game Jam, professional and amateur gaming enthusiasts of all skill levels will join forces to develop video games. From the idea to the design to the finished game - what can otherwise take months or even years happens here over a single weekend in November.
"We can't wait to finally host another InnoGames Game Jam. Anyone who hasn't stumbled across a budding game developer in a sleeping bag in the office on a Saturday afternoon or looked into a sea of tired but happy faces during the final game presentations on Sunday, will find it hard to comprehend what we have been missing. We are excited to see what great new games will emerge from the unique mix of innovation, collaboration, experimentation, and high time pressure that only a game jam can offer," explained Michael Zillmer, COO and Co-Founder of InnoGames.
At IGJAM #13, the focus is once again on fun - but developers looking for a competitive element will not be disappointed. At the end of the jam, everyone will have the opportunity to play and evaluate the games that have been created, with the winners promptly announced on both the IGJAM website www.igjam.eu and on InnoGames' social media channels. The rights to the games developed during the Jam remain with the respective teams.
