Repeal Game Jam Galway – Together for Yes

15 April @ 10:00 - 17:00

Tickets are still available via the Eventbrite link.

Repeal Jam Galway is a Game Jam that will take place on Sunday, April 15th from 10am-5pm. The venue is located on William St West in Galway City’s West End. The office between the Blue Note and Claddagh Cabs.

Admission is free, with donations being accepted for Together For Yes.

A call to action via a tweet and brought us together for #RepealJam with support from ARC. During the event, we will be raising funds for Together For Yes Campaign.

The 8th amendment is a topic that affects everyone in Ireland, but the experience of its impact is very personal and often private. Games have a unique ability to put the player in another person’s shoes, present them with the same choices and let them experience the realities of different situations.

Political games are a campaign device that is slowly growing. These games reach different demographics than those usually targeted in campaigns and often have an ability to appeal to people of different political affiliations.

Repeal Game jam is a creative event in support of the campaign to repeal the 8th amendment. We’re looking at using games to reach different people who may not be as informed on the referendum or who don’t think they’re affected by it.

Although primarily a game jam, all mediums are welcome to join and get creative for repeal.

Games created will be uploaded to: http://itch.io/jam/repealjam
