Blending Game Jam - Second edition, 2017

The Blending Game Jam is a multi-medium game jam organized by the Bbug. You take a typical game jam, and you blend it with boardgames, cardgames and every other kind of games. Fun guaranteed!

What is a game jam ?

A Game Jam is an event usually for video game creation over a specific period of time. In practice, this means that the participants will form teams and create video games on a given topic, all in less than 2 days. A Game Jam is a good way to learn about the creation process of games, improve your coding skills, try out new ideas, meet other enthusiasts and build your professional network.

Been there, done that... (What's different this time ?)

Like last year, this jam is also open to every other kind of games creators (card board games, wargames, role-playing games and so on). It's quite logical actually ; those two communities have a lot in common ; obviously the love of games, interest in game design and, of course, quite often a will to create awesome stuffs and share it to the world. Who knows ? Maybe you'll meet perchance an awesome game designer or coder who is the perfect person for your future studio.

Secondly, and thanks to our partner, the Bifff (Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival), you'll be able to show your prototype during their festival (both in the lobby and on stage) and pitch it against the competition for a chance to win the audience award. While it has never been so affordable to create a game, it has become very hard to advertise efficiently your project amongst the numerous games that are being made each year. Seize this opportunity to test thoroughly and promote your idea in front of a lot of people.

Third, VR gears will be available on site during the jam thank to Screen.Brussels and the Microsoft Innovation Center - Brussels. There is no excuse not doing some VR stuff!

Finally, Ludilab will give a talk about game design and then empower your team.

We hope you'll have a lot of fun creating some awesome games.
