The department of Game Design at Uppsala University, campus Gotland
This is the highly informal blog of the GAME-department. We use it mostly to document the things we do outside of running one of the worlds strongest game educations. For information about our education, programs and courses, check the official site at Uppsala University.
As part of the yearly Gotland Pride celebration, we would like to see all of your inspiring, truthful, beautiful, strange, queer, dreamy, throbbing, challenging, difficult, joyous or riotous explorations of what games are or could be; be it concept art, character designs, demos or finished games, or relevant written stories (for example about how life in the games industry is as a non-binary gender-bender).
The goal is to put together a virtual exhibition of all these works and publish it to the public during Gotland Pride in November.
Deadline for submissions: November 3, 2020 at 23:59.
For more info on how to submit work for the coming virtual exhibition visit the google drive folder and read through the instructions found there: http://shorturl.at/gnrP8
