– Who is welcome to join? –

We are looking for kids from refugee background to participate in playing and making fun with kids from dutch heritage. Playing with each other gives the kids the opportunity to show square games and connecting to each other. We then have developers who will make a digital version of the games played on squares.

–  WHAT IS A GAME JAM? –

“Jam” is a reference to musician jam sessions, not traffic or spreadable fruit.

The goal is to come together and make a video game, or non-digital game like a board game or card game. Participants rapidly prototype game designs and hopefully inject new ideas to help grow the game industry. We share a common theme and constraints. We ask participants to create a game from beginning to end in a prescribed time. The brief time span is meant to help encourage creative thinking to result in small but innovative and experimental games.
