42 – Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything- and so we shall gather together for 42 hours to create a new video or tabletop game.

Welcome to CoMo Game Jam V! That’s right V – 5 – Five. This is third year of game jams, now, with nearly 50 games made so far! After the kick off and theme tournament you will have 42 hours to make a new game using whatever tools you prefer!

Do I need a team?

Come as an individual and join/lead a team

-or-

Gather your crew and bring the entire team for the Jam (still be on the lookout for other talented people to join your crew)

Attendees will be given a few minutes to come up with a game concept and pitch to the group. People join projects they’re interested in helping with.

We have advisors, food, and drinks throughout the weekend to keep you moving.

Who should attend?

  • indie game developers
  • game developers
  • tabletop creators
  • artists
  • musicians
  • storytellers/writers
  • business & marketing folks
  • People who love games

What if I don’t know anyone?

Great! We didn’t know anyone when we started this either, there was 2 game devs and a supporter who wanted to find other people to play/work with. Our last event had 60 people attend, most didn’t know anyone when they started. One of the magical things at a gamejam is the space between working when you connect with people over your love (or hate) of different games. 

How much does it cost?

Nothing. Really.

We are fortunate to have great sponsors from Regional Economic Development Inc. (REDI) to Hawthorn Bank, and Columbia College. The support from the community has helped propel our game creators forward. We see no reason why Mid-Missouri can’t become a HUB of world-class game creators and our supporters agree. We strive to keep the entry no-cost and utilize sponsors to cover food and drinks throughout the weekend so your team can focus on making a great game.
