Frequently Asked Questions

What is a game jam?

A game jam is an event where you join a team to make a game in 48 hours. You can make the best game of them all and challenge yourself with new game ideas and technologies.

Who else is going?

The jam is for professional game creators, students of games and anyone else interested in making games! We welcome programmers, artists, designers, audio creators, writers, producers and anyone else to join the fun!

In 2018 people from 31 different nations participated!

Where do i sleep?

It’s sadly not possible to sleep at the venue. Copenhagen has a lot of great hostels that can accommodate any visiting jammers.

The venue is open 24/7

What’s for dinner?

Your ticket includes 6 meals. The game jam is 100% vegetarian, so we don’t mess up the climate too much while making games.

There is free toast if you get hungry between meals. Also free coffee, of course! Finally, there is a Netto nearby for any other needs!

How old should I be to attend?

Game jamming is for all ages but at Nordic Game Jam we work all night and might drink a few beers so participants between 16 and 18 years old are only allowed under supervision or parental consent.

Do i need a team?

No, it’s totally fine if you don’t have a team. On Friday we will do a group forming event and everyone ends up in a team.

(If you want to work alone, that’s totally fine as well.)
