One theme, three days, an endless amount of potential. Austrian students form teams with professionals from various fields – such as programming, art design, level design, and sound design – and create playable game prototypes within the extremely short period of three days. VIENNA DESIGN WEEK visitors are invited to watch the developers at work and take part in a question-and-answer session. Finally, processes and games will be presented. The latter will then be playable until the end of the festival. This will make the praxis of game development accessible and the richness of creative collaboration tangible. GAME JAM offers emerging professionals a platform for networking and exchanging ideas, and is intended to lay the foundation for further collaboration.
Participating institutions: Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt, Danube University Krems, University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria – Campus Hagenberg, University of Applied Sciences Salzburg, HTL Spengergasse, SAE Institute, TU Wien, etc.
