What is Indie Galactic Space Jam?

It’s THE collaborative Game Dev Event that
works closely with the Space Industry held annually in Florida

Indie·Galactic·Space·Jam
noun
1. an event in which individuals come together in a physical environment and attempt to rapidly prototype a game (video or otherwise) focused on some element of space in a limited amount of time; a “space-y” game jam: She was on the team that made that awesome game I love at the Indie Galactic Space Jam!

This will be the 7th ever Indie Galactic Space Jam, and we’re excited to bring this event back after a year hiatus due to Covid-19. This year, we’re back with fun challenges to create space focused video games, and a great opportunity to connect with an amazing crop of talent, mentors & leaders from both the Space and Video Game industry. This is your chance to build something extraordinary with talented peers from all over Central Florida. Become part of a team or stay a lone (space) wolf charting a course to fun and excitement.

Everyone is welcome to participate throughout the 48-hour Jam. We’re looking for artists, programmers, game designers, UI & UX designers, sound designers, writers, poets, interpretive dancers, people excited about games, people excited about space, people who like to eat pizza, and people like you. Register today and get ready to jam!

Our 48-Hour Mission

Central Florida is brimming with tech talent- you know it, we know it; it’s time to work together and let everyone else know it!

Our goal is to bring together people from various creative and technical fields to develop fun games that generate excitement among the public about space travel & exploration. Our dream is that these same individuals find new ways to work together and form lasting relationships. We hope to put the national spotlight on Central Florida and show off our unique combinations of talent and, even more, that the games we make help promote interest in STEAM education to the generations that will carry these concepts into the future.

Are you ready to join in?

Food everyday, Working with awesome talented people, working on something cool like Space Games, lasting connections & opportunities

Compelling Games require
a smart mix of combined skills

I absolutely loved the event. It was great having actual representatives from the Kennedy Space Center and NASA Engineers there to give us feedback on the game. This made the experience so unique, having people that knew so much about the space industry. I definitely learned a lot and it was really fun incorporating that into our game.
