In order to participate in a game jam, you do not need to be a professional game developer, even though you might end up in a team with one or more. Whether you can program, design games, think quantum, draw, model, create audio, compose music, or make coffee: you are needed! Being a (quantum) game maker is a constant learning process – come and learn together with others!

AROUND THE GLOBE
The main site for the Quantum Game Jam is in Finland. There are satellite sites around the globe, which are organized independently and you can also organize one. If you don’t have an access to a physical game jam site, you can participate from your home as an online jammer if you have your own team or can work independently (similar to Ludum Dare).
Each Quantum Game Jam location is organized independently. Depending on the local jamming cultures and the resources available, you might find differences in group forming exercises, additional program, facilities, available technology, opening hours, sponsored meals, participation fee etc. If you are unsure of the details, please do not hesitate to contact your local organizers.
HELP FROM QUANTUM PHYSICISTS
Each team without quantum team member will have a small chat with quantum physicists to get feedback on the idea and answers to quantum questions. The main site at Helsinki will have quantum physicists as participants in the teams. This year, the main site will be run from an actual quantum lab! You are welcomed to join the main site!
The Quantum Game Jam is a 48 h jam where the participants create games together in teams (or alone, if you so wish). The overall theme of the Quantum Game Jam is quantum physics and the specific themes are provided for the participants at the beginning of the jam. The theme videos are also released to the online participants.
GAMES & THE FUTURE OF YOUR PROJECTS
The Quantum Game Jam games are created from scratch within the jam weekend and released at the end of the event under a Creative Commons license (Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike). The event is co-organized by the University of Turku, Aalto University and the Finnish Game Jam organization with the help of several organizations around the globe. Our physicists are aiming to find interesting game prototypes to develop further in order to contribute to quantum physics research questions and learning quantum intuition.
