A MAZE. Museum Online Game Jam


Game meets museum: At the A MAZE. Museum Online Game Jam, game experts will embark on a three-day virtual marathon from July 19 to 21 to come up with game ideas that fit the eight research museums. Do you program, develop and design games and are you full of ideas for an exciting knowledge game? Then sign up and join in.

People, animals and plants, technology, cultures, and ideas: we all circulate, adapt to new environments, and help to shape them. Our world is in motion. And that’s what makes it so fascinating and appealing - but sometimes also threatening. We would like to explore this world of motion and shape the future together. Help the Leibniz Research Museums to inspire active exchange about a world in motion with your game idea! The Leibniz Research Museums and A MAZE. / Berlin 2021 - 10th International Games and Playful Media Festival are pleased to invite you to:

By creating a concept or, if possible, a playable prototype for a browser-based museum game or game application we want to bring people together, make science and culture more accessible, understandable, useful and enjoyable.

All idea submissions will be featured on the Research Museums’ website – and if your idea is chosen by the jury, we’d like to implement your game!
