ASPIRING GAME DEV?

We help you develop games no matter if you run a hobby project, a start up or an established game studio. We offer a meeting place for co-labs, learn game design and workspace for your game project. A place dedicated to creation and collaboration free of charge

HOW

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/ software and a local/global network.

WHO

Graphic designers, artists, writers, musicians, actors and coders. 3D/2D-art, sculptors, philosophers, designers and anyone set to create a digital experience! If you’re a beginner – don’t worry TGJ is also a place for self development. 

WHEN

The workspace is open weekdays 9 am – 4 pm.
Meet-ups on Tuesdays and Thursdays 5 pm. We strive to make it an inclusive and safe environment for all. Tuesdays are for women and non-binary. As a member you can apply for a tag which gives you access out of office hours.

WHERE

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

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 .

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.

TGJ has encouraged me to develop my personal skills by giving me the opportunity to learn from experts in different domains. TGJ is a place which gives one exposure to see things from different perspectives

At The Great Journey I’ve found friends and means to be able to work with the passion we all are sharing; games.

STAFFAN OLSSON

3D-artist / Animator / Technical Artist

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!
