Arabic Game Jam Developing Weekend 2014!
The weekend 25 til 30 september, the teams that were chosen from AGJ 2013 and AGJ 2014 got to be a part of a developing process. The three teams Strive, Fourpick and Unseen were chosen as the ones who made the best game concepts in AGJ 2013 and 2014 and therefore got the chance to get further help along their way. The mentors involved in this process came from, among others, Play3arabi, Na3m Games, Portaplay, and Ozma games and they held workshops and helped the teams develop their game concepts even further. The game concepts they started off with at Arabic Game Jam! The workshops evolved around marketing within the MENA region, project planning, pitch training, budgetting and what it means to be an entrepreneur in the gaming industry, On Tuesday afternoon the teams performed their new pitches in front of a jury and got tips on what their next step should be and other valuable insights. We wish our teams good luck and hope to here more from them and of course to see their game concepts out on the market in the future!
