INDIE9000 – Open for sign ups!

Finally! INDIE9000 returns in full force this May! We’re now open for sign up, we’ve found a location, and our game engines are tuned and ready. INDIE9000 is ready to launch!

The summer will be kickstarted with another brand new edition of INDIE9000. This time, INDIE9000 will take place on top of one of the tallest buildings in Aalborg, the old powerplant “Nordkraft”, now repurposed as a cultural and creative hub. We’ll be jamming on the 11th floor in this awesome building, which is situated smack in the center of Aalborg. Hopefully the great view won’t distract you from making awesome games too much. As always, our core values remain the same: hygge, making new friends and game development..

Who can join?

INDIE9000 is for everyone who want to develop games. It doesn’t matter if you have never developed a game before or if you are a hardened professional. All that matters is that you are eager to create cool and awesome games and want to use a weekend with like-minded people who share your love for developing games.

Programme for the weekend

After arrival there will be a short introduction of the INDIE9000 concept and theme. When this is done people will be free to talk about their ideas and form teams. At 10:22pm everyone will present their game idea.

The rest of the weekend will be pure game development, until Sunday around noon, at which point all the games have to be handed in and presented. After this people will be able to see each others’ games and vote.

The rest of Sunday until 3:00 pm will be spent playing cool games, talking and taking a breather after a weekend of hard work.

Public game presentations, and awards

Sunday, we’ll finish the jam off with a presentation of the game productions in front of judges and participants at the gamejam, which will be finished off with a presentation of awards in different categories.
