Due to the recently publicised eSport issues at Assembly 2014, Finnish Game Jam ry has halted the organising process of the ASM FGJ 14 game jam, which was to be held at Assembly 2014. We are waiting for a response from the Assembly organisers and will re-evaluate our participation based on that. Finnish Game Jam ry would like to officially state that it will not be part of any event which will support, directly or indirectly, fully or partially, any racist or sexist practices.
Finnish Game Jam ry furthermore urges anyone embracing the values of game jams – equality, inclusivity and collaboration – to not take part in or support any gaming related events which will not allow participation regardless of gender, race or sexuality.
