Slavic Game Jam is the 48-hour hackathon which goal is to make games related to a given theme. Everyone interested in game development is invited to take part. The upcoming 4th edition will for the first time be a competition-free event. SGJ 2018 will focus purely on creative and social aspect of game development. Instead of presenting games and voting, participants will have an opportunity to play each other’s games, talk and share their experience. Additionally, there will be many interesting lectures, workshops and a Pre-Party. Three previous editions received a very warm welcome from journalists and participants. Over 300 people took part in the last one thus allowing SGJ to join the pantheon of the biggest game jams in Europe. It was supported by big companies such as Epic Games, Microsoft, Techland, AMD and many others.
Games from previous editions
The originator of the Slavic Game Jam is KNTG Polygon, a student scientific association from the Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology, which bravely unites university gamedev since 2009. Right now it can be proud of over 400 registered facebook users and about 100 people regularly attending weekly lectures and workshops. For the last few years the association was responsible for organizing PolyJam – Warsaw edition of Global Game Jam. Polygon is also organizing Game Dev Fest which gathers many gamedev experts to share their knowledge and experience acquired over many years of work.
