BBQ Game Jam

Nancy: August 27-28, 2021 Register!

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 !


Game Jam ?

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.

BBQ Game Jam ?

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.

How will the event unfold ?

Starting 4pm on friday, jammers will arrive with their computer (and whatever else is required), then they form teams (or already have one), the theme is announced at 6pm, and the party begins. At 7pm, we throw the BBQ!
On saturday, at 6pm, the games are presented and we start playing. After that, we'll have some time where each group can share and talk with the others and the public.
