The Global Game Jam Pärnu was back for the second time and was better than ever! The event was held in the beautiful Wasa Resort and Spa and was organized by Gamedev Estonia and Gamecan. 60 participants from all corners of the world, including the USA, India, Turkey, and more, came together to create 14 exciting game prototypes in just a few short days. The participants displayed remarkable collaboration and
creativity as they brought their ideas to life.
Food and housing were provided for all participants, making the event an all-inclusive and enjoyable experience. Teams from Gamecan, Full Cycle Game Academy, Ringtail Studios, Ringtail Academy, Tallinn University, and Ida-Virumaa kutsehariduskeskus all took part in the jam, making it a truly
diverse and inclusive event. The end result was a range of innovative game prototypes that showcased
the incredible talent and skills of the participants. The organizers would like to extend their gratitude to all the participants, sponsors, and supporters who made this year’s Global Game Jam Pärnu such a huge success.
Special thanks go out to our generous sponsors: Arvutitark, Red Bull, Creative Mobile, Placeholder Gameworks, Gimme Break, Wasa Resort, Simple Magic, EAS (Enterprise Estonia), and Pizzakiosk, who helped make this event possible.
