Crossing borders and trying out new things are central components of a Game Jam. New teams or game developers work together in proven constellations to create new computer games in 45 hours of collaborative work at the Online Game Jam. The focus is on fun, creativity and enthusiasm for digital games and the current challenge of working well together in virtual space.

The Online Game Jam starts on Friday, November 6 at 6:30 pm with the presentation of the topic and ends on Sunday, November 8 at 4 pm. Selected games from the Game Jam will then be presented by Twitch streamer OddNina in a Live Let’s Play.
