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 grilled stuff! (veggie-friendly =P) This year, you will be able to attend to this game jam on the location of your choice: Technoport in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg or, TCRM-Blida in Metz, France.
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.
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.
Starting 2pm on saturday, jammers will arrive with their computer (and whatever else is required), then they form teams (or already have one), the theme is announced, and the party begins. At 7pm, we throw the BBQ!
On sunday, at 2pm, the games are presented and we start playing while eating pizzas. After that, we'll have an "after-jam" until 5pm where each group can share and talk with the others.
Four minutes away from the train station ("Belval Université" stop). The building is adapted to people with reduced mobility.All the necessary maps are available here.
15 minutes away from the train station. By tram ("Mettis"), line A, "Pontiffroy" stop. 1 hour and 20 minutes away from Paris by train. Free parking lot in front of the building.
From Saturday, August 26, 2017, 2pm up to sunday, 2pm~5pm (you can stay a little longer if ou feel like it to talk and play some more).
