Game development

The game development competition is intended to encourage the demo creators and everybody else to design interactive entertainment. It is not about creating the next Half-Life, Starcraft, or World of Warcraft, but creating something smaller and yet much more creative - as a result the games are usually fun and often wacky.

As a visitor you will be able to download and play the games to make up your mind before  for them. If you can not run the game yourself there will be recorded videos of the game in action.

The deadline for all the Gamedev compo entries is on 28th July, 2017 at 18:00 Finnish time (EEST or UTC+3). We will publish all the entries on 31st of July.
