Nordic Game Jam opens up ticket sales

The biggest game jam in the world is getting ready to welcome developers from the Nordics to Copenhagen once again.

Nordic Game Jam has now opened up the ticket sales for the next edition of the jam, which takes place from 6th – 8th of February 2015. Announced only minutes ago at the latest Spilbar arrangement in Copenhagen, the organizers also had another  pleasant surprise for this year’s participants: The next iteration of the jam is also going to be cheaper than last year. This time, the admission will be $85 for students and $100 for professionals. That’s $15 cheaper than last year for both categories. However, there will only be 250 students tickets available.

The organizers also revealed the design for this year’s poster and t-shirt, the latter of which can also be pre-ordered when buying the tickets for the Jam. The t-shirt sells for approximately $16 for all sizes.

 

As last year, Nordic Game Jam will take place at Aalborg University Copenhagen’s premises in the Copenhagens Sydhavn-area. And just like last year, there will also be a pre-party the day before the real Jam kicks off, which will be the 5th of February for the 2015 edition of the Jam.

The speakers for the next edition of the jam are still to be announced. Earlier years have featured keynote speakers such as DennatonVlambeerGreg CostikyanManveer Heir.

 

The Nordic Game Jam has previously acted as a great networking event for indies in the Nordics, and has resulted in games such as Dark Room Sex Game, Johann Sebastian Joust and Stikbold, as some of the more notable examples. The jam started in 2006 with only 40 participants, but has since grown to a hefty 570 participants at the Nordic Game Jam 2014-edition.

Last year, the participants were even lucky enough to get a free Nexus tablet, as google decided to hand one of these out to each of the participants, but so far the organizers have kept quiet regarding any similar happenings at the 2015-edition of the jam.

 

Tickets are available for purchase at the Nordic Game Jam website here, and more information about the jam can be found at the official website here.
