Charlitas Deluxe

On Thursday before the start of MálagaJam Weekend 17, we will have a series of very interesting talks with personalities from the sector who work in renowned videogame development studios.

This small event is an excuse to see each other’s faces before the game jam starts, as well as to listen to some cool people who have a lot to contribute. We will have Fernando De Luna from Odders, Dobra Studios, the Coordinadora Sindical del Videojuego and Anna Guxens from Larian Studios.

The Charlitas Deluxe will start at 17:00 on 25 January at the Polo Nacional de Contenidos Digitales. Admission is free until full capacity is reached and you can attend even if you don’t have a ticket for the jam.

If you can’t make it, you can watch it live on our Twitch channel. We’ll be waiting for you!

A gamejam you won’t forget
Why choose MalagaJam?

We take care of you and you enjoy yourselves

We have been working to support the local video game industry since 2015.
Venue of the Global Game Jam No. 1 in Spain, No. 1 in Europe and No. 1 in the world.
We bring together creators from multiple disciplines at all levels.
We work and care for you to make it a diverse and safe event for everyone.
What is MálagaJam?

We are a non-profit organization and organise game jams.

Since 2015 we organize one of the best game jams in Spain, among other events. At our event you will meet many professional and amateur developers, both from Malaga and from other parts of Spain. During the weekend you will be able to benefit from their experience and knowledge.

With this edition, MálagaJam Weekend accumulates 9 consecutive years being the local venue of the Global Game Jam, the largest in Spain and Europe. It has also received the DeVuego Award 2018, 2019, 2022 and 2023 for the best game jam in Spain and the DeVuego Award 2023 for the best organization.

What is a game jam?

You have 48 hours to develop a video game or board game.

You will have to base your game on a specific theme that we will give at the beginning of the event. At the end, each team will present their game to the rest of the teams and after a vote of all participants, the best games will be awarded with a trophy.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never made a game before or if you don’t have anyone to assist, the first part of the event is focused on team building and there’s always someone who needs your skills: be it programming, drawing, composing, modelling, writing or telling jokes!

Thanks to the Polo Nacional de Contenidos Digitales we have an incredible space divided into rooms where you will meet with your team to create and even stay overnight if you want to live the whole experience.

What sets us apart?

A diverse space that is committed to human value.

One of our main objectives is to promote diversity in all its aspects, which is why we work to make it as safe and accessible as possible for everyone. To this end, we have the presence of the organization FemdevsGaymer and La Madriguera who will be available during the event to advise you on representation.

Everyone who respects this philosophy is welcome, although minors must have permission or be accompanied by an adult.

To encourage human connections and to help you unwind a bit, we will be holding light-hearted games and raffles throughout the weekend to have a few laughs and distract us.
