Video games are created in a participatory manner that is building them between different people. These will have to have all kinds of knowledge and profiles: know how to explain stories, draw, create 3D scenes and generate sound and music, program...

We do not have to forget that we must also know how to design memorable experiences, that is, to know "a little" about game design, which is psychology.

Sign up for Game Jam to jointly create powerful and group videogame concepts! It is not necessary to have previous knowledge, but you really want to participate. Unlimited places.

The groups will be formed in the same Municipal Auditorium of Amposta. Award for the winning team!
