Qaos Games arranges game jam in Malmö
The gaming studio Qaos Games will arrange a game jam in Malmö next week. For 24 hours, participants can enjoy the experience of creating mobile games together.
The event will take place at Media Evolution City in Malmö, November 13-14th. Qaos Games are the organizers of the game jam, with support from The Springfield Project. The venue is provided by Crunchfish.
”The purpose is to create mobile games during 24 hours. Developers and designers are divided into teams made up of 2-3 people. Some will come there alone and be matched according to the demands. Others come there with their team. After a short introduction the teams can begin,” says Sebastian Lindén, Co-founder and Creative Director of Qaos Games, to Smashdig.
Game jams have become very popular in the gaming world. Big names such as Minecraft creator Markus ”Notch” Persson has participated in international game jams in the past. In bringing the concept to Sweden, Sebastian Lindén is clear on what he and Qaos Games find important with these types of events.
”It’s important to have fun! We forget that sometimes. We also think it’s fun to meet skilled people. We look at it as a way to find out what can be achieved together in a short period of time. In Sweden we have loads of talented game developers. We think it’s important with initiatives connecting these people,” says Lindén.
What are your expectations of the event?
“That everyone who participates are satisfied and could imagine doing the same thing again. It would also be fun if they would mention the event to all their friends,” says Lindén.Qaos GamesThe Springfield ProjectCrunchfish
