International game week brings valiant game creators together to Meduusa Studio in Kasarminmäki. Gather your team and take part in game development sprint! Best games and gaming innovations will get honor and glory as well as prizes as well, in the grande finale Creative World -seminar!

Osallistuaksesi tapahtumaan sinun tulee rekisteröidä itsesi tapahtumaan Eventbritessa. Ilmoita jos sinulla on oma tiimi valmiina, tai jos sinulla ei ole, voit tiimiytyä myös paikan päällä. Kellä tahansa on mahdollisuus voittaa palkintoja, sillä raati keskittyy enemmän pelin ideaan ja innovaatioon, sekä ongelmanratkaisukykyyn. Oli sitten pelinkehittämistaitosi huippuluokkaa tai olet uusi alalla, ei hätää!

Tärkeintä on, että tehdään yhdessä uusia peli-innovaatioita ja pidetään hauskaa siinä samalla!

To participate in the event you have to register yourself to the event at Eventbrite. Inform us if you have a team ready, and even if you haven't, you can also find a team or team members at the jam site. Everyone has chance to win the prize, the jury will decide the winners based on the game idea, innovation and the actual problem solving... So if you think you're little rusty, don't worry! Everyone's got a chance, regardless of skill!

Most important part is, that we do this together and create new gaming-innovations! Of course not to forget about the core part: have fun while at it!

Lyhyesti RGJ:stä ja mitä se edustaa - RGJ: What is it and why is it happening?

Rapu Gamelab edustaa Xamkin Luovien Alojen TKI-yksikön toimintaa ja on osana toteuttamassa tätä tapahtumaa Kouvolaan. Pelinkehityksen aiheet voivat olla haastavia ja yllättäviä, mutta pelinkehittäjät keksivät lopulta aina keinon ongelmiin! Ongelmia voi löytyä niin arjen ikävien asioiden pelillistämisestä tai oppimisen paremmista keinoista. Rapu Game Jameissa aiheet ja ongelmat tulevat eri yrityksiltä ja onkin kiinnostavaa nähdä, mitä kaikkea pelit voivatkaan ratkaista!

Palkintotilaisuuksista, pelien palauttamisesta jne. tulee lisätietoa tarkemmin tapahtumassa.
Kilpailuun ei ole osallistumispakkoa, eli voit tulla tekemään pelejä myös muuten vain. Rekisteröinnin yhteydessä voit sitoutua kilpailuun. Rekisteröinti on pakollista jos haluat osallistua kilpailuun ja voittaa palkintoja!

Xamk RDI-department, Creative Industries has all kinds of projects and Rapu Game Lab has been born inside of this organization, it is small now, but it should grow eventually. We are proud to be part of organizing this event and making it happen! RGJ brings Game Jam site to Kouvola, finally, uniting people from Kotka and Kouvola! And whoever finds their way here! There are interesting assignments that are from different companies and to further to add in the mix, there are some special diversifiers for the competion!

There will be more information about the prizes and game submits. You don't have to participate in the contest, but it is highly advised if you registered yourself to the event. You can just jam all the way you want. Remember: You have to register in order to participate in the contest and win prizes!
