Game Jam

Educational Game Jam at ECGBL 2017

As a new initiative at ECGBL 2017 we are pleased to announce that we will be running a Game Jam – a day event on Wednesday 4 October at the FH JOANNEUM University of Applied Science, Graz, Austria. We will use the Game of Games, developed at the University of Twente to guide this Game Jam.

Unlike other Game Jams this event will ask participants to work in groups to come up with a pre-prototype design for an educational game – the specification of which will be provided by the organisers.

We will start at nine AM with a value proposition game leading to bright ideas that we will develop during the day. To focus the ideas we will work with a general theme to be announced. Behavioural change will be leading our MDA design. Before six PM we will have created working prototypes that can be demoed during the conference. In the early afternoon they will be tested on fun, flow and feedback mechanisms.

The Game Jam is open to anyone to attend and we expect to have a multi-national group. Numbers will be limited so early registration is recommended. Participants should bring a laptop or tablet with them. No prior experience is required because we aim to have multi-disciplinary groups
