Insert Game Here is Omaha’s freshest summer game jam event dedicated to teambuilding and the growth of the professional game development community in Omaha. To fuel this weekend-long event our official Caffeine Sponsor is Roast Coffee in Aksarben Village. As always, we are 100% FREE!
All participants will receive free coffee on Saturday and Sunday, a pass for a free drink at any Roast Coffee location, certificate of participation, laser cut swag, and a chance at some of our absurd, non-competitive “Awards of Questionable Value”.
We welcome first time game developers! Designers, artists, musicians, programmers, voice actors, hobbyists, educators, and anyone is welcome to try their hand at making a game. Participants should bring anything needed to make your video or physical game. If video games aren't your thing or access to hardware is an issue, you're encouraged to test the waters by making a board game!
Anyone can participate, as long as they are over the age of 18. More information and registration can be found at insertgamehere.org
Friday is focused on helping everyone meet each other, create teams, wrap their heads around the quirks of a game jam, and prepare for a weekend development environment. Saturday we announce the theme bright and early, and teams start their project from absolute zero. Sunday, teams are given time to polish their game before the space is open to the public for playtime and voting.
