Have you ever wondered what a Game Jam is all about and what you can do there? From the 14th to the 16th of September, you can find out for yourself at our 4th InnoGames Game Jam. Together with developers, graphic artists and game designers, you will face the challenge of developing a game about a given topic in only 48 hours. What type of game will be totally up to you: Do you want to create a jump & run? Go for it! Are you more into action games? Also fine! Have you ever tried developing a pure text adventure? Now is the perfect time! The participants of the last InnoGames Game Jam created 14 games with a “survival” theme.
However, a Game Jam is not only about developing, designing and coding nonstop for 48 hours. Having fun together and exchanging with others is also a part of a Game Jam, of course, as well as lots of energy drinks ;) You can read in our corporate blog what it was like to take part in our 3rd InnoGames Game Jam.
The 4th InnoGames Game Jam will again take place at our Hamburg offices. Besides InnoGames employees, the event is also open for external guests. Of course, we provide attendees with free food and drinks. Additionally, we have some cozy sleeping places in our office for you and your sleeping bags. Therefore, all you need to bring is a personal computer and some motivation to create games.
Are you interested? Just send a mail to gamejam(at)innogames.de and tell us a bit about yourself and why you want to take part. You can find additional information about the InnoGames Game Jam on our homepage at: gamejam.innogames.com.
Hamburg’s games industry wants YOU!
Heavyweights from Hamburg like Bigpoint, Innogames and Gamigo have built operations spanning the globe. And there are more startups waiting in the wings. What unites them all is their need for new business partners and creative minds. 500 open positions in Hamburg present both an opportunity and a risk: It is the opportunity for game designers and programmers from Britain, Europe and overseas to have a flourishing career in Hamburg. And there is the risk of growth being stunted if our rising stars are not successful in recruiting international talent.
As the prime partner for the games industry in Hamburg, we would like to establish a direct dialogue with you. Please contact us if you are seeking new business partners or are considering a career move to Hamburg. With a population of more than 1.8 million, Hamburg is an international seaport that has much more to offer than just a booming games sector. When the workday is over this city will thrill you with its richly varied arts and music scene, culinary delights and dazzling nightlife.
