This summer, we invite all creative people, graphical designers, musicians, developers, hackers to participate in a relaxed atmosphere to the Barbecue Game Jam: one day of video game creation accompanied with sun and barbecue ! This year, you will be able to attend to this game jam on the location of your choice: High School of Arts and Crafts in Luxembourg, Limpertsberg site or, TCRM-Blida in Metz, France.
Gather video game creators, ranging from hobbyists to professionals. Mix everyone in teams. Wait for 24 to 72 hours and you will get innovative games and a great social experience.
A game jam is not a competition, but rather a moment of sharing passion, of learning, of innovation or of personal challenge, and above anything else an unforgettable moment.
The BBQ Game Jam is slightly different. It spans over a single day, teams consist of 1-5 jammers and the objective is to create games based on a given theme. All this while eating grilled stuff.
Starting 2pm on saturday, jammers will arrive with their computer (and whatever else is required), then they form teams (or already have one), the theme is announced, and the party begins. At 7pm, we throw the BBQ!
On sunday, at 2pm, the games are presented and we start playing. After that, we'll have some time until 5pm where each group can share and talk with the others and the public.
From the train station in bus, via line 2, "Limpertsberg" stop. Or by car: a 200 free parking spots is available at the High-School
15 minutes away from the train station. By tram ("Mettis"), line A, "Pontiffroy" stop. 1 hour and 20 minutes away from Paris by train. Free parking lot in front of the building.
In Metz, it will be from Saturday, August 18, 2018, 2pm up to sunday 19, 2pm~5pm (you can stay a little longer if ou feel like it to talk and play some more). The hours are the same in Luxembourg, but the event will take place from Saturday, September 22, up to Sunday 23
