Sensei Game Jam is a 48 hour event consisting in creating games – board games and digital ones. This year, participants prepared games at the Institute of Computer Science of the University of Wroclaw on December 8-10.

The main idea of Sensei Game Jam is to help inexperienced participants to create their first games with the help of mentors, who thanks to their experience can support virtually any game dev area. For us, it was an opportunity we couldn’t miss.
During event, over 200 participants were divided into teams, usually with 3-5 people in each. Participants could take part in one of two modes – classic where everyone could sing up alone or with team. Second mode was Sensei, in which participants were randomly assigned to teams, which could make it difficult to work in a team because they did not know their teammates.

Representation of the F44 Red Club participated in Sensei mode for the whole 3 days, which resulted in games created by them from the very beginning:
– Very Wild West by Adam Polok and Dawid Raszka – second place
– Retarded Terrorist by Edyta Legierska and Michał Drab – 7th place
– NieBoCorpo by Tomasz Honkisz and Daniel Dutkiewicz – 23rd place
The rivalry between over 50 teams was fierce, because participants were also juries. Despite big competition, everyone was very positive and helpful to each other.

Participation in Sensei Game Jam isn’t only monotonous hours of writing the code and pulling hair out of the head, but also an interesting event during which you can meet many interesting people which often share your interests. People who willingly discuss with each other on various topics and share their experience, knowledge and priceless know-how of game development, but also the entire IT industry.
