Eco Echoes: Tinderbox Game & Music Jam

Games Jam Poster Edit V3

A one day online creative jam making music & games inspired by environmental awareness and action, presented as part of The Dear Green Bothy

Join us for Eco Echoes, a one day creative jam where we invite people to write songs and make games around an environmental theme.

We will start the day with a welcome and some live music, then a short talk from artist & game designer Yann Seznec!

The Music and Game Jam will then begin, where people can write and record songs and make games in their own time.

The theme is environmental awareness and action – jammers can make any kind of game and/or music that explores this theme, in any format. This could be anything from a fully fledged digital or online game; to a physical, board or card game made with recycled objects found around the house; to a song or piece of music! Whatever takes your fancy!

Throughout the day there will also be an optional songwriting workshop, and we will have a couple of meetups on Zoom and/or Discord scheduled throughout the day to share works in progress.

And… We will end the event with a live play-through and open mic to share the games and songs!
