The second edition of the Climate Game Jam was held from March 17th to 19th 2017. Nearly fifty artists and developers spent 48 hours creating video games about climate change. This year, the theme was 2 degrees Celsius to the end of the world (about 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit).
Organized by Hakatah, the event took place in the Castle of Castries, near Montpellier. The public was able to meet the participants, and watch some documentaries devoted to the environment while pedaling on bikes to generate electricity.
A jury made up of local elected officials, professionals and video game enthusiasts awarded several prizes to the prototypes presented by the developers on Sunday evening.
