This summer, GAMERella organizers are planning a global event to help aspiring and emerging game-makers around the world get to the next level! Founded in 2013, GAMERella is a free, learner-friendly and supportive game jam, dedicated to finding ways to better serve people who are often excluded from traditional game-making spaces. The Global edition will feature new, playful and innovative structures rooted in research, experience and participant feedback of the past 8 years. Anyone can sign up from anywhere in the world!
Hundreds of people have made their very first game at GAMERella, the world’s longest running inclusive game jam. Now it is time to level up! Make your next game, learn about the industry, make connections across the globe, get a job or start your own indie studio! Whether that is to make your next game, start your own indie studio or get a job at a AAA — GAMERella is here for you! As always, GAMERella invites women (cis/trans), trans men, non-binary/genderqueer folks, BIPOC and any others who feel they haven’t reached their potential in game-making, to join GAMERella Global in a weekend of fun game-making.
All you need to participate is a computer, internet access, and to clear your calendar on July 9-11, 2021.
GAMERella Global 2021 is co-presented by Concordia University’s Technoculture, Art and Games (TAG) Research Centre and EA Motive Studio, and is supported by Autodesk and Behaviour Interactive.
