BYOG

BYOG (Build Your Own Game) is a game development jam where people interested in making games, get together and simply make games. Considering the diverse and nascent nature of game development in India, instead of doing it at a physical location we do it online. It is similar to Ludum Dare game jam and Experimental Game Project.

Anybody interested in making games or even learning how to make games should participate in the BYOG. The idea of the jam is to encourage collaboration, team building, experimentation, creativity and exploring something new and bold. It is not limited to students or working professionals, anybody and everybody is welcome to participate at the jam.

Started in 2010, BYOGs are one of the oldest game jams organised every year in the Asian continent and have a rich history of identifying and encouraging game development talent from the country. Past winners have gone on to win multiple international awards, launch successful game development companies, and make amazing games and careers.
