After a four year hiatus the Moray Game Jam, one of Scotland’s premiere annual game-making events, is returning to UHI Moray this year from the 10th-12th of March.
The Jam will task participants with creating a digital or board game, based on a thus-far-unrevealed theme, within 48 hours.
The Moray Game Jam has long been a staple of the Scottish games calendar, drawing in developers from across the country to create exciting projects year on year. In addition to the Jam itself, which will be judged by an all-star industry panel consisting of Louisa Gallie, Kenny MacAlpine, and Stuart Muckley, the event will also feature workshops and talks by key figures in games and games education.
While a Moray Game Jam hasn’t been held in four years, the 2023 version presents a chance to come back with a bang, as event organiser Jacqui Taylor notes:
“UHI Moray, with partners, are delighted that the Moray Game Jam is returning after 4 years to Moray. The success of the previous Jams saw teams from across Scotland travel to the most northerly Game Jam and create exciting video and board games and we hope that the 2023 one will be even more of a success. We will be running innovative workshops open to the public on the Saturday, delivered by industry and educators, and the Gaming Playground on Sunday will be open to anyone to come and try out the new games. We are indebted to our sponsors and partners for their support in making the Moray Game Jam a reality for 2023.”
