GAME JAMS

What is a GAME JAM?

It is the meeting of diversities for improvisation in the creation of games.

The goal is to meet, form teams with people of all kinds of profiles and create a video game. We have 48 hours to base, design and create from beginning to end a video game that encourages creative thinking and contributes to the improvement of our society.
