From the 5th to the 7th of November, be part of one of the teams that will be selected to create video games under the mentorship and guidance of South African and French games industry experts. This Jam aims to bring together a large and inclusive network of creators, authors, journalists, directors, game designers and developers to work as a team and share their skills. We welcome any students, professionals, and freelancers from the creative industries for a fun opportunity to learn new skills and network with each other.

NB: In order to be as inclusive as possible, teams selected will be balanced across gender, race, and experience level.

Main objective of the Jam? Make games together, meet people, learn, have fun !

How to participate:

Each participant will be selected from a call for application as the number of teams is limited.

Rules and values of the Jam:

Participants and mentors must be kind to each other

Everyone is allowed to go at their own pace.

Respect between each person involved in the Jam is mandatory.

Each participant must abide by the Code of Conduct and Anti-Harassment Policy enforced for this event.

This Game Jam is not a competition

This Game Jam is 48 hours long to give participants a timeline and structure in which they should be available if they want to get the most of it. Therefore mentors will only be available during this time.

There won’t be a prize at the end.

The goal is to finish in time to be able to showcase your game to a professional gamer/international audience for them to play.

Communicating and sharing knowledge is essential

This Jam requires participants to work as teams.

Mentors and participants will be there to exchange and share their expertise.

The purpose of this jam is to collaborate to learn how to create something new and explore new ways to do things.

Everyone is allowed to apply

Team size is limited but the selection committee will choose participants from different backgrounds and not only from the gaming industry.

Students are welcome to apply

Consider creatives from any industry as potential game creators.
