During the Millenium Web Meetings, the must-go meeting point for fans of new communication technologies, you’ll be able to participate in a different kind of game jam. Instead of a video game, during the Cross-Over Lab (December 2nd – December 4th) you will have 48 hours to develop the prototype of a GameDoc, the perfect marriage between a video game and a web documentary, combining factual message with playful interactivity.
To succeed in your mission you’ll need various skills on your team: an author, a game designer, a graphic designer and a web developer. Just like traditional game jams, participants will have to work around a central theme. Inspired by the marvelous city of Brussels, your GameDoc has to provide an answer to the question “How to live together in the modern megapolis?”
At the end of the competition a professional jury, spearheaded by web documentary veteran David Dufresne, will judge the pitches and hand out different awards.
If you want to participate, either as a team or as an individual, you can head over to the Cross-Over Forum where you can already present your project’s idea, pose questions to other users, and form teams for the days of the competition. The call for entries is open until Sunday the November 20th. On the November 23rd the participating teams will be announced. Don’t hesitate to think out of the box and good luck!
