April 8-10th 2016 (pre-party April 7th!)
Even though the talks begin early on Friday 8th, there is no need to be there in order to participate in the game jam (though it would be great if you could join the talks we have prepared for you!) Group forming however will begin later on during the day. If for some reason you arrive later than that, don’t worry. Stop by the info desk and we will help you find a group!
What to bring:
If you’re participating in the digital games track then the first thing you’re going to need is, of course, your own computer! We also recommend that you bring an Ethernet cable with you (while we will do our best to maintain a constant wireless connection going, you don’t want to be cut off when uploading your game in the last 5 minutes of the jam!). From there on, all the tools you may bring are up to you: tablets, mind readers, Oculus Rift devices, Kinect, Wii Remotes…
For the board games track, we will provide you with all sorts of material that you can destroy, break, cut into pieces and transform into anything you may need. But of course, you’re more than welcome to bring your own stuff from home. Otherwise, you might want to look at the 3D printer and laser cuter that we have available during the jam.
Where to sleep:
If you are planning on taking a break from the game jam (hey, not everyone does that!) then you will probably want a proper place to sleep. For that matter we have made a special deal with Danhostel Copenhagen City, where all participants can get unexpensive housing alongside other NGJ attendees, with several options to choose from.
It is important to take into account that sleeping at the game jam venue is not allowed (it’s a restriction that applies to every university in Denmark), which is why we insist that participants have a look at the housing options mentioned in the link above.
