Retro Game Jam is open for everyone interested in developing games for older hardware. No prior experience on retro development is required, but we encourage to do some research of the platform of your choice before the jam.

There will be a selection of retro consoles with development tools available and of course you are welcome to bring your own. The jam will have a theme revealed on the spot. You can come alone or as a team. There will be short brainstorming and team forming session at the beginning. 

The Studio is open 24/7 for jamming. If you want to sleep on location, note that there is no separate sleeping room and you will need to bring your own mattress. Please tell us if you have any special needs regarding movability or allergies etc.

Everyone has access to the following:

  • A (shared) working desk, Wifi, Toilet, Microwave.

  • Coffee, non alcoholic beverages (BYO if you want alcoholic ones).

  • Selection of retro consoles & televisions.

  • Workshop with tools.

Here are platforms provided by the jam! You will also get deployment tools to run & test your game easily on the target system via sd card or burned cd. Of course, you are more than welcome to bring your own hardware as well.
