Castle Game Jam

Castle Game Jam allows participants to experiment and exchange knowledge for 120 hour in a beatiful castle. The attendees are generally made up of artists, musicians, programmers and others in game development related fields. All kinds of games can be created during game jams but the main focus of Castle Game Jam is primarily digital games for PC, mobile or consoles.

We find Örebro Castle on a small island in the river Svartån which runs through the heart of Örebro, situated in Sweden between Stockholm, Gothenburg and Oslo, Norway. With a total of almost 1,000 m2, divided between five rooms for participants, the castle will offer us everything we need while at the same time providing us with a historically interesting environment to further stimulate our creative capacity. Örebro is a city of roughly 100,000 inhabitants and offer a wide variety of i.e. food and activities. The castle is located close to the central train station, which you can reach easily by train or bus from many locations in Sweden. We will gladly help you find the best route for your trip to be able to join us.

Due to Swedish laws, alcohol is not allowed to be consumed or stored in the castle.

If you are a parent who wish to bring along your child and spouse, this is perfectly possible. Please contact us for more information or if you have any questions.

Each team will be given 3 minutes to present their project with the help of a projector. The team could either play their game, use slides or have a video montage. The presentations will be recorded and streamed live. After each presentation, there will be 1 minute for feedback and questions by judges who are there to help teams improve their presentational skills.


There are 7 rooms in the castle which we may use for the game jam. Some are huge, some are smaller. Rooms will be given labels to help people working with similar tech sit in the same area for better exchange of knowledge.


We will be inviting press, streamers and YouTubers as per usual who will be covering the event throughout the week. You will be able to submit work in progress to them and they will be playing it and showing off your work to their audience. We do this to help shine light on you and your work, and to better give you feedback throughout the week on how others feel playing your game.


We will be inviting expert volunteers who will be attending the game jam solely to help teams by answering questions about their engine and tools. This way everyone will be able to bounce off ideas with someone outside of their team, someone a bit more objective.


Each award category has a trophy, and the big category "Game of the Year" has an extra large one.
