Game Jams

Game Jams are game development challenges, where video or board games are created under tight time constraints (e.g. 72 hours) and to fit a predefined, but often vague theme (e.g. "10 seconds" or "connected worlds"). Their main goal is to provide people interested in games the opportunity to create something, share it and collect feedback afterwards - although sometimes they are used by game developers to prototype new concepts internally as well.

Here at KOM we organize local gatherings for global game jams like the Global Game Jam or Ludum Dare since 2013, combining the global community with a local one. While the former provides the theme, motivation and additional after-the-fact feedback, local participants are able to easily discuss game ideas, give immediate feedback or help each other in case of technical difficulties. Our gatherings consist mainly of students and scientists from TU Darmstadt, complemented by invited game developers, colleagues from other universities and even hobbyists (we intentionally do not require pre-existing game development experience).
