The 2nd Winter Game Jam is open to everyone who likes games and wants to create, test and talk about games. Starting on Friday the topic will be revealed to all participants at the same time and random groups will brainstorm games. Then, after the ideas are pitched, team will emerge around ideas and games are to be created. Finally, on Sunday, the projects are presented to a jury and a price for the most awesome project is awarded.
Our beloved Gamebert is now on Facebook! Background stories on Gamepics and the Game Jams are what he contributes to the general noise of the internet.
Gamebert is the figure of game related activities at Alpen-Adria Universität Klagenfurt and the mascot of the Game Jams there.

From July 12th to July 14th, staff and students affiliated with the Klagenfurt Game Jam have gathered at the Turracher Höhe for a retreat to discuss the status quo of gaming at Universität Klagenfurt. Organised by Assoc. Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. Mathias Lux, the team of fellow professors, as well as university and student assistants, has taken a moment to celebrate the achievements of the past year, ranging from the most successful Game Jams in the history of AAU to the second Game Pics Show and the impressive start of the Game Studies and Engineering master’s programme, as well as to organise their future strategies and offerings. The serene landscape of the Gurktal was no mere backdrop for strict work, though: once the daily meetings were over, there was enough time to explore the beauty of the mountainside by hiking.
