Alberta Game Jam

Alberta Game Jam is Alberta’s first and largest province-wide game jam event, seeking to help unite and empower new and current game developers in our province. Whether you’re a seasoned developer already working in the industry or a beginner looking to get started, game jams are an excellent way to get connected with your peers, flex your creative and problem-solving muscles, and share your experiences by making games! If you’re new to game development, game jams are also a great way to learn the ins-and-outs of the process and start building up pieces for your portfolio. Anyone can learn to make games, and game jams are a great place to start.

Alberta Game Jam took place August 23-25th, 2019.
