Game_JamGame Jam: a concept that brings together game designers and game enthusiasts for anywhere between 24 and 72 hours with the purpose of planning, designing and creating a game. Since they started more than a decade ago, Game Jams have been going on regularly, all over the world often with specific themes.

Recently at Wikimedia Deutschland in Berlin, there was the Free Knowledge Game Jam; where participants were  challenged to create a game that makes use of publicly accessible free and open licensed data and/or tools. A concept with far reaching impact, not only for game makers but for society as a whole.
Today on the program, we’re walking around the Free Knowledge Game Jam learning about these talented participants and their unique projects.
