There are growing needs of a game industry but lucky there are people that want to get into making games. I had a little presentation on exactly that subject on IGDA Las Vegas Meetup where I’ve shared a few tips that can greatly help newcomers.
“How crazy it will be to host the Global Game Jam site? ” – someone said back in late 2014. That was enough to make it happened! Starting from our first edition in 2015, Foundation Lublin GameDev is hosting Global Game Jam site in Lublin which is called “LubJam”.
From the beginning of it, attendees created over 50 games! And all of them are available at the Global Game Jam website!
Foundation was created two years after Lublin GameDev group started. It continues doing things that the group began and expanded with new initiatives.
Of course in the very core of Lublin GameDev community are still people and casual meetings. But besides that Foundation continues to organize Lublin GameDev Barcamps, GameDev Workshops, LubJams to encourage people to reach out for greatness in games that they are doing.
It all started back in 2013 on the way to Digital Dragons in Cracow as we had this crazy idea to create gamedev community in Lublin so we don’t need to drive to other cities to meet new people. And back then Lublin was the only city in Poland that had a pub with consoles which was and still is named Padbar. So couldn’t ask for more. 😃
