About this Event

Welcome to the BCI Game Jam!

Please remember to register for the main event at our itch.io webpage !

Activities will kick off on Friday November 8th at 5:30 p.m.

Goal of the jam:

This game jam is motivated by the hundreds of children who, until recently, may never have been able to play a video game before. As BCI technology grows and matures it will continue to enhance the lives of children (and adults) who have lost significant motor functions. This game jam aims to push the available experiences offered by BCI to new levels for these individuals. We all cannot wait to enjoy the wide variety of gaming experiences you will create!

Our Theme:

Accessibility in gaming. In particular- integrating BCI as a control scheme for games. We want this game jam to highlight the importance of considering accessible game design and game play for all players.

Local Events for BCI Game Jam:

This ticket serves as entry to the local events of the BCI Game Jam at the Edmonton Site. These events will include access to a creative space for game development over the weekend, access to BCI hardware to prototype your game developments during the event, and more!
