We often hear developers say at DevGAMM that game jams played a great role in their projects. Whether it were external events like Global Game Jam and Ludum Dare, or brainstorms and contests within the company, their value cannot be underestimated.
But not everyone understands yet how to take full advantage of game jams. While Piotr Iwanicki, SUPERHOT creator, will talk about participating in external events, Imre Jele from Bossa Studios is going to tell how internal jams helped launch their successful projects.
At Bossa, they believe that truly innovative games require disruptive production methods and novel use of technologies. Bossa team uses new tech and leadership approaches to inspire themselves to create better games in a better way. Their obsession with doing things differently shines particularly well in their regular internal gamejams which created multiple million selling games like Surgeon Simulator, I Am Bread and their ambitious new title; Worlds Adrift.
Imre Jele is a lifelong gamer and game-creator, expert in game design, narrative, crossmedia and audience engagement. He’s known for promoting innovative and collaborative creative approaches including Bossa’s regular internal Game Jams.
Throughout his colourful career, Imre has worked on a wide range of game genres and platforms. He’s Co-founder and Creator-in-Chief of Bossa Studios – winner of multiple BAFTA and other awards, creator of Surgeon Simulator and Worlds Adrift.
