What’s in it?

Bratislava Game Jam Session is a one day game-jam-like event, where people gather, share knowledge and build things. The topic of the session is creatures and characters. Come with your computer or other favorite tools in the morning, dream and design your own little being, and show it to other fellow game designers in the evening. We are interesting in everythig you breathe life into. Be it plants, animals, creatures, heroines. Anthropocentric or not. Their cognition, emotions, culture, memories, history, fashion, stories, interactions. What you create is only yours, and can be used in your future game.

This is also a warm-up for Bratislava Game Jam 2019. A good start for both BGJ veterans and anyone hesitating.
