What kind of game jam experiences do you have? Did you organize a game jam yourself? How was it? How many jammers participated in the jam, what were the highlights? Or maybe you experienced something surprising or exciting at a game jam somewhere? Did you make new friends? Jammed with your child? Brought your dog to the jamming site? Made an interesting game project? Fooled around in a creative way?

*The book project*
The Finnish Game Jam Stories book project will combine a selection of stories from the exhibition and new submitted stories into a physical book. The planned publication date for the book is in 2024 and there will be a pre-order possibility organized by the Finnish Game Jam organization. The draft of the book will be made available for the Finnish game jam community to comment in Spring 2024. The editorial board consists of Annakaisa Kultima, Kati Alha, Elina Koskinen and Timo Nummenmaa.If you are interested in publishing your story in our book project, make sure that your text is fluent, easy to read and that your grammar is checked. The language of the book is English. There is no minimum length for the stories, the maximum length for the stories is 10 000 characters. We also welcome photos as accompanied with the stories or with a short description of the photo. You must provide credits of the photographer.
