Participants will be given a theme with which they will have 48 hours to create a game, after which they can be judged by our panel and given the Austrian Game Jam Prize!
Before the game jam officially kicks off, we have invited our good friend and indie developer/producer Des Gayle (Square Enix Collective, Digital Legends Entertainment, Exient Ltd) to hold a keynote speech at 2pm on Friday, open to all. During this opening ceremony, you will get to see some new Austrian projects, as well as try out the latest EIZO & Wacom have to offer, courtesy of our partner, CGShop!
