Sofia Game Jam WEEK is a three-part initiative of open to the public events about game development and digital artistry. Each event is dedicated to a specific topic, features experienced speakers from the industry, and also gives an opportunity to young people to meet directly with Bulgarian game companies and learn about the job opportunities there.
Sofia Game Jam is a 48-hour hackathon where we make games and invite important people from the game industry to tell us what’s what. Everyone is welcome! No matter if you are really into game development or you are just a gamer who wants to try making games – SGJ is the place for you!
The Jam is a non-profit event fully run by volunteers known for fostering friendships while increasing opportunities among participants. It’s not a competition, but rather a way to stimulate innovation, experimentation, and collaboration in the Bulgarian game dev community.
Our ultimate goal is to create a space where everyone is free to experiment with game mechanics, explore their imagination and try out new ideas. And check this! We are part of Global Game Jam – one of the fastest growing initiatives in the world. In 2018, 42,800 participants from 803 sites in 108 countries around the globe created 8,606 games for 48 hours!
We were one of those locations!
And now we want to do even more…
