What we're about

We are hosting frequent events for game developers and game designers in the Munich area. We're a very inclusive group: If you can read this, you are welcome to join us for any of our events at any time. It doesn't matter if you're indie, employed, freelancer or student. Both experts and newcomers are important parts of the group. Join us if you want to meet like-minded people and improve your skills and knowledge in development and design. And yes: We explicitely want more non-white, non-German, non-male, non-straight and otherwise interesting people at your meetups. So join us and have a good time.

Mini Game Jam

Werk 1

You have always wanted to make a game but never found the right people? You're already making games in your day job but they take years to complete? Why not try something new? Munich Indie is a loose collective of people in Munich, Germany who like to create games. We organize semi-regular (read: a handfull every year) 24-hour game jams. What is a game jam, you ask? "A game jam is an organized get-together with the intention of creating a full game – from conception to completion – in a pre-determined, short period of time." That means if you want to work with other enthusiasts (professional game developers, students and hobbyists alike) on making something innovative in a very short time, then feel free to join us for the next jam. You should have some applicable skills (programming, 2D/3D art, audio, game design, writing) but do not have to be a master in any of these. Check out http://www.munichindie.com/ if you want to check out some examples of the games that we made in game jams over the last few years. This time we want to try a new concept: We will split the jam into two parts, the first day will start at 10 am and end around 10 pm, the second day will start at 10 am and end around 6 pm.
