On the final weekend of the Pride Month, from Friday 30.6 until Sunday 2.7.2023, in partnership with the Helsinki Pride Community, FGJ is organizing its fourth Pride Game Jam! Throughout these three days, you will be able to create games and get to know the game making community – amateurs and professionals alike.
Pride Game Jam HKI is a three-day hybrid event organized by the Finnish Game Jam ry that celebrates LGBTQIA+ people by creating a safe space for expressing one’s gender, sexual, and romantic experiences through art, music, and, of course, games! This inclusive and vibrant gathering brings together diverse creators, both seasoned and aspiring, to collaborate and explore the intersection of gaming and LGBTQIA+ identities.
Whether you are an experienced developer, an artist, a musician, or simply someone with a passion for games and inclusivity, the Pride Game Jam HKI welcomes you to join this extraordinary celebration of creativity, diversity, and love.
Finnish Game Jam ry wants to thank game developing company Lightneer, which cordially offered their premises to hold the event in a very conveniently located office in the very heart of Helsinki in Kaisaniemi.
The amount of tickets is limited, so please make sure to secure your participation by ordering yours as soon as possible. Note that the event is hybrid, so pay attention to the ticket type (online or onsite).
