Aspiring Game Dev?

The Great Journey gives you friends and colleagues as well as a creative workspace with hardware and software. A place  dedicated to creation and collaboration free of charge.  


Creating games is a co-lab enterprise. The TGJ way is to team up with people with different skills. This is the place to meet game devs, to learn, build a team and make games. TGJ provides the workspace, hardware and software a local/global network.


Writers, musicians, actors and coders. 3D/2D-art, sculptors, philosophers, designers and many more. Anyone set to create a digital experience! If you’re a beginner – don’t worry TGJ is also a place to develop one self.


The workspace is open weekdays 08.00 – 16.00 and Meet-ups on Tuesdays and Thursdays 17.00. we strive to make it an inclusive and safe environment for all. Tuesdays are for girls and non-binary. As a member you can apply for a tag which gives you access out of office hours.


The hub is located in Karlstad Innovation Park. Sommargatan 101A, 656 37 KARLSTAD. A stone’s throw from Karlstad University.

We the community!

The Great Journey is the hub for game developers. Each and everyone interested in making games regardless of experience, level or background are welcome. As a community we share beliefs, resources, needs and risk. We support and inspire each other to overcome challanges and achieve goals!

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what the community say:

It is an opportunity to share my programming knowledge especially in the field of game development with others, such as C# and C .

For me TGJ brings inspiration by enabling a meeting place for all people engaged in VR and AR. We have already found new and innovative uses for this technology and I know there will be more!

TGJ is for me an inclusive place where creative people come together to grow and learn about game development. It doesn’t matter what background you have. Wether you’re interested in the art aspect of it, or if your’e just sitting on a very good story and you want to bring it to life.
