During the second weekend of the festival, the annual global game jam takes place! 

Be ready to team up, unleash your creativity and make the most amazing game you and your teammates possibly can!

Each edition there will be a secret theme that will be revealed at the start of the event. We will provide you with a location, food and a separate sleeping area so you can work your magic during these intense 48 hours.

What about COVID-19?

We want everyone to be safe with regards on the COVID-19 pandemic, while maintaining enough freedom for the whole Jam experience to stay enjoyable.

To ensure safety, only participants and staff will be allowed access to the Jam site.

Entering the Jam requires you to have a Covid Safe Ticket, a negative test, and not have any recent symptoms.

A negative test can be a proof of testing from the pharmacy dating from the last 48 hours, or a negative self-test on location.

Where do we sleep?

As sleeping hall we will be using the silent, dark concert hall with soundproof walls and double ventilation. You should bring your own mattress and sleeping bag though.

Where do we shower?

There is no shower available, please shower beforehand and provide the necessities to ensure a pleasant experience for others.

What should I bring?

  • BYOD: The hardware you need to make games
  • Multi-plugs and network cables
  • Sleeping bag and air mattress
  • Clothes, deodorant, toothbrush and other personal hygiene necessities

I have certain food restrictions or allergies.

All food will be vegetarian by default.

You can list your dietary requirements during registration, and we will take them into account.

I have more questions.

Feel free to ask them on the Game Jams in Flanders Discord!
