Next year, Finnish Game Jam will be organized for the fifth time. During these years we have learned a lot, grown quite a bit, and realized that we have something special going on in here. We started from three cities with about 100 participants – in 2013 there was 12 locations and over 500 jammers. We have grown to be the largest game development event in Finland.
We have had committed volunteers making this possible, and it was time to take the step to create an official association around the event. Thus now Finnish Game Jam is not just the event. Finnish Game Jam ry is a registered association, whose main purpose is to coordinate and organize the Finnish Game Jam event and to support the game jamming activity in Finland.
