Why hard core mobile games just might work

Do you have a smartphone at hand? Then unlock it for a second. Come on, take a look at it! Now tell me: how many of the games you have installed feature cutesy graphics or social experiences that cater to everyone? We wouldn’t be surprised if the majority of your games fit that description. Don’t worry, we won’t judge you...

5 Students, One Game Jam, a Stikbold Game

Every year we see some great games coming out of Nordic Game Jam. Many of them become an amazing showcase for participant’s portfolios. But others become much more: their teams continue to actively develop the game.

Go from beginner to pro with Unity with our free lectures

Here at Nordic Game Jam we are big fans of Unity, the popular game engine that was born in Copenhagen and quickly caught on with indie game developers, especially in the mobile market.
