On September 14-16, the InnoGames Game Jam held its fourth edition. During three days full of creative ideas, little sleep and even more energy drinks, a mix of internal and external developers, graphic designers and game designers tinkered together at their game ideas.
Last week, InnoGames employees boarded buses with beer in hand to an unknown location. The annual InnoGames summer party started out with a hand out of pirate gear - eye patches and bandanas – revealing to attendees that a Kartuga event was in store.
Last Monday, the Game Developers Conference Europe (GDC) was the start of a loooong exhibition week for InnoGames. At the GDC booth, colleagues from HR, PR, marketing and business analysis were represented - we have had many good conversations with interesting new contacts and refreshed the existing ones. The presentations at the conference were very interesting for developers, game designers, graphic artists as well as producers and colleagues from marketing.
Have you ever wondered what a Game Jam is all about and what you can do there? From the 14th to the 16th of September, you can find out for yourself at our 4th InnoGames Game Jam. Together with developers, graphic artists and game designers, you will face the challenge of developing a game about a given topic in only 48 hours. What type of game will be totally up to you: Do you want to create a jump & run? Go for it! Are you more into action games? Also fine! Have you ever tried developing a pure text adventure? Now is the perfect time! The participants of the last InnoGames Game Jam created 14 games with a “survival” theme. However, a Game Jam is not only about developing, designing and coding nonstop for 48 hours. Having fun together and exchanging with others is also a part of a Game Jam, of course, as well as lots of energy drinks ;) You can read in our corporate blog what it was like to take part in our 3rd InnoGames Game Jam.
As you know, even if we spent most of our working time in front of a screen, we are still a very sportive company. This Sunday, it was time again for our annual fun sport event – the dragon boat race 2012!
