GameZanga is an event for game development enthusiasts all over the Arab World and beyond.
The Zanga, known in English as a “Game Jam” is one of the most popular game development activities in the world. It brings together developers of all skill levels and to meet, learn from each other, experiment, and develop games within a short time period and based on a specific theme. Game Jams are usually no longer than a week and the theme ensures all games are made within the jam time. It also offers a challenge and helps push participants to innovate and think outside the norm.
The Zanga is open to game development enthusiasts of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels, whether you are an industry professional or you’ve never made a game before. The obstacles to development are practically non-existent these days and there are free development tools available. Some tools make it possible to create fun games without needing to write a single line of code as well as plenty of content and libraries that you can use in your games for free.
GameZanga is a non-profit initiative by the GameTako community to promote and support the game industry. It is now organized by volunteers from game dev communities across the Arab World.
The Game Zanga was established in Palestine for the Palestinian developers & artists community.
