Pride Game Jam Helsinki is an annual three day game jam that celebrates LGBTQIA+ people by creating a safe space for expressing one’s gender, sexual and romantic experience through art, music and video games.
The event aims to educate on LGBTQIA+ experiences, and help budding game devs to learn key skills in teamwork, design, and familiarize with relevant software. Everyone is welcome, including allies, regardless of skill level and background.
Pride Game Jam Helsinki is part of Helsinki Pride Week 2021, and is organized by Finnish Game Jam ry in partnership with Helsinki Pride ry. Last year our jam ran as a hybrid jam, and this year we’re fully online. The main platform for the jam is our Discord server, to which you will be invited after registration. Panel talks, workshops and speakers will be streamed directly through Twitch, and game submissions will be through itch.io.
