About the Game Jam


No previous experience in creating games needed. You could be a traditional artist, a creative writer, a project manager who loves to plan, a creative coder, a 3D modeller, a musician, a designer or just love games of all kinds! No skillset or skill level is required. It’s 100% open to everyone!*

Not all games have to be digital or played on a computer, we encourage people who want to create board games, card games, games played in a space or with words. All kinds of games are welcome!


We encourage folks to work in groups of around 4-5 people of various skills to get together to create a game.

If you make some drawings, write a piece of code, draw out a sample board game it’s all fine! the idea is to get together, generate and develop ideas together and get to wherever you are on Sunday. You can always carry on after the weekend is over :)


We’ll reveal a theme on Friday evening to help guide the creation of your games and remember, you don’t need to have a finished game at the end of Sunday!


At 5pm on Sunday, there will be the option to tell the other attendees about the games you’ve created. There’ll also be the option to have the games available to play or show at the Pride Gaming event!


If you need any help, we’ll have a few folks that have made games before to lends a hand with planning, coding, artwork and various other game creating skills.**


The only materials we can’t provide is a computer for everyone, so if you want to use your computer or any special equipment then please bring these along***


We’ll also have an opt-in visit to the VR lab on Saturday. A 5-10 minutes trip from the venue where you can see what exciting developments in Bristol are happening around VR!


This event is open to people in the LGBTQIA+ community only. At this time, our cis and straight allies are valued as supporters but we want to keep the jam as a space for LGBTQIA+ folks to express themselves and champion their creative efforts. We ask you with kindness to respect this.
