Do you believe?

Do you believe in love, Yahweh, Buddha, Allah, or yourself? Do you want to explore how a belief can inspire game design… http://ow.ly/i/gSgzV

Rami Ismail – Religion – Gamejams We are

Rami Ismail – Religion – Gamejams

We are proud to announce that Rami, known for his inspiring blogposts, critical talks and out-of-the box thinking, is this year’s face on the Games [4Diversity] Jam flyers. With his partner Jan-Willem Nijman, Rami participated in many gamejams, sometimes even shorter than 2 hours! His witty remarks and constructive criticism correspond well with the missions statement of Games [4Diversity].

Games [4Diversity] tries to contribute to a better representation and inclusion of socio-cultural minorities in popular culture. We do this in positive and constructive ways. Most known is probably the annual jam session: Games [4Diversity] Jam. Having explored how the design perspectives are influenced by different perspectives (LGBTQ in 2014 – Ethnic Backgrounds in 2015), this year’s theme surrounds believe systems and religious convictions.

We are honored that Rami offered to help us in spreading a more positive an constructive position towards religion, namely that it can be inspiring and connect people. Do you want to join us making a difference? Sign up for this year’s Games [4Diversity] Jam. We found a very fitting space: the Dominican Church in Zwolle, the Netherlands.

Come to the Games [4Diversity] Jam 2016: I Believe! On March 26-27th, and be inspired by fellow developers and connect to existential thoughts and perspectives.

Ever jammed in a church?

This year you can! This year’s Games [4Diversity] Jam will explore how religious believes and personal convictions influence our design process. Will the gameplay, designed from a Buddhism perspective differ significantly from an Islamic game? We will create better insights in this question by adopting religious perspectives and develop a game in less than 36 hours.

What better place to explore religion in games than a church!? The Dominican Church and Monastery in Zwolle open her doors for game developers this Easter Weekend (March 26-27). In this inspiring neo-Gothic church we will create games that show how positive and beautiful religion can be, if canalized in positive and constructive ways.

Come to the Games [4Diversity] Jam 2016: I Believe! And be inspired by fellow developers and connect to existential thoughts and perspectives.
