Gamejam Contributions
“In this paper, an analysis of game jam descriptions and definitions in academic papers is presented. A total of 20 papers from various publication venues from 2006 to 2014 are analyzed in terms of their conceptualizations of a " game jam ". The background of the papers and their contribution to game jam research are also critically examined. A further explication, " an advanced definition " , is proposed as a basis for future academic discussions and collaborations. The advanced definition sums up game jams as: accelerated, constrained and opportunistic game creation events with public exposure.“
