Your English is not very good?  Don’t worry! Even though English is the official language, the Staff will try as much as possible to help with the communications and will provide helping material for the presentation of your projects. If the galaxy was able to understand Yoda and Chewbacca, surely we can understand each other too! 😉

This Game Jam has created thanks to the collaboration of various European cities within the event “StartupCities Summit 2020”.

 

Supplementary activities

Global StartupCities GameJam will offer interesting supplementary activities for devs (which will not be compulsory to participate in the Jam).

Friday, 20th November:

  • From 15:00h to 17:00h (GMT+1) we will speak with two indie developers who will talk about their experiences (both successes and failures!) in the videogame industry.
  • From 17:30h to 19:00h (GMT+1) there will be a workshop about video game design for a game jam, with tips & tricks and answers that will help you finish your project successfully.

On top of that, during the whole Saturday the 21st you will have expert mentors available to help you solve any doubts during development.

If you have little experience in game jams, these activities are perfect for you! You can ask questions and interact with expert developers. Don’t miss the chance!

Also, if you’re interested, you can sign up for StartUpCities Summit 2020 (Not obligatory to participate in the Jam!).
