Event description
Games In the Woods is an online tree themed game jam for all ages

About this event

During the Urban Tree Festival we encourage you to create video games, interactive fiction, web comics, board games, escape games, card games – anything you want! The only constraints are time, the theme and your imagination. You are welcome to join alone or in a team to create digital and analogue games.

This game jam will run throughout the duration of the Urban Tree Festival (15-23 May 2021). If you have made a game for this jam, please join this show and tell event on Sunday 23rd May, where we will celebrate the fruits of your labours and sample games made by jammers.

To join the jam and submit your game go to

Please use #gamesinthewoods on social media to share images and details of your work in progress, and follow the British Library’s Digital Scholarship blog, which will share, showcase and celebrate games created during the festival.

Before and during the Urban Tree Festival, game jammers can meet and chat with organisers and each other on our Discord Server: So please join and say hello on there!

On the first day of the festival, Saturday 15th May, please join us for our online launch event where we will present the project and the team. The launch will be followed by two optional tutorials on Bitsy and Twine and will be an opportunity to learn how to use these tools and ask questions.
