PARTICIPATE IN THE FIRST MAJOR PHYSICAL BELGIAN GAME JAM
In collaboration with Howest Digital Arts and Entertainment, DAE Studios is proud to announce the “Unwrap Game Jam” – The first physical Belgian game jam on a scale that has not been seen before! Every student, alumni, hobbyist, or studio can participate! 72 hours filled with creativity. Save the date: from the 14th-16th of February, you can participate in the first edition of the Unwrap Game Jam!
The game jam was originally organized by Howest DAE during the creaweek. A week that focused on exploring the creativity of people in various domains. One of the activities was a game jam. DAE Studios offered its support to bring the game jam to the next level and open it up to everyone in Belgium.
The game jam provides a great opportunity for developers to experiment with new ideas, meet other developers, and challenge themselves to create a game in a short amount of time. It is also a great way for developers to showcase their skills and get feedback on their work. The upcoming game jam is sure to be a fun and exciting event for all the participants and spectators.
The Unwrap game jam is open to all Belgian game developers!

We are so excited that we can host a physical event after so many months of lockdowns and virtual events due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be wonderful to interact with people in person again and experience the energy and excitement of a live event. The Unwrap game jam will be held in “The Square”, one of Howest’s campuses. We expect over 200+ participants!
Did we mention that free pizza will be provided during the game jam? Another reason to participate, who doesn’t love free pizza?
On Thursday 16th, at 3 pm, we’ll wrap up with a grand showcase moment! Each team will receive the opportunity to present its game to a jury of renowned Belgian industry professionals. You will receive points from each jury member and, as such, could be elected as a winner by the jury.
Next to a jury, your team could also win the community prize! Your games will be live on itch.io to play. May the odds be forever in your favor.
