The original idea for organizing a game jam on Sami culture came from Tony Manninen, the founder of Oulu based game company Ludocraft. Manninen is full of great ideas and we are happy to make this one happen!
We are also proud to announce that Ludocraft is sponsoring the Sami Game Jam! Ludocraft was founded as early as 1994 as part of a university research group that later became an independent game studio. One of the early members of the Ludocraft team, Mikael Latva is also taking part of the event as a jammer.
Tony Manninen and Ludocraft are looking forward to see what kind of games are born at the jam.
