At the Chaos Communication Camp 2019, I gave a talk about “the why and how of game jams”! This is an extended version of my earlier talk Dare to Ludum Dare, offering a more general view on game jams.

Here’s the recording - you can switch between English audio and a German live translation via the cog icon. If you prefer, there are also English and German versions on YouTube. You can open the slides here.
