About

Hi, we are happy to announce that we are starting a co-living community for game developers, located in Sweden! Last year we were out looking for houses and participating in various auctions. We found the perfect house, but unfortunately an other party sealed the deal before us, and we gave up for the time being. We had been planning for this for a few years and it was very disheartening when we saw our dream house slip out of our hands. Just a few weeks ago, things changed. We got a call from the person who bought the house and he was asking if we still had an interest in buying it. He had renovated the place and was now looking to sell it again. It caught us by surprise to say the least and we are now doing everything we can to get the all papers signed as fast as possible. We are in agreement with the salesperson and are ready to go forward, we just need to sell our current homes.

To help us get this show on the road a soon as possible we are launching four game jams, one for each season. We will use the money we raise to decorate the place, put in individual locks for the different rooms and more. The house is a dream and we want to share it with you.

About Spelkollektivet

Spelkollektivet is home for game developers from all over the world who wants to live and work with like-minded people while focusing on their projects for 3 to 12 months at a time.

It lets you focus. While living in Spelkollektivet you don't have to deal with everyday tasks such as cooking and cleaning. You therefore have more time for your game development dreams.

It's cost efficient. All you need is included in the rent. Healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner, fruits, private room, shared office, consumables such as toilet paper and laundry detergent.

It's so much more. You'll have access to: gym, workshop, virtual reality room, pool, jacuzzi, three different types of sauna, streaming / podcast room, marketing and help from experts.

The jams

There will be four jams in total over the next year, one per season. We are looking to have around 40 participants per jam, it is going to be a cosy event where you will be able to make new friends.

We will supply you with all you need for sleeping, so no need to bring an air mattress or such, and if you opt for a private room, you will have a real bed.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner is included in all the tickets, as well as coffee and tea. To let people get to know each other we will be making randomized teams each day when making dinner.

The jam itself is roughly 5 days on 6 days, but you are welcome to come earlier to relax, for a total of 9 days.

The house

There is a lot of different facilities available to use when participating in the jam. Feel free to spend the day working in the Jacuzzi if you want! The house has around 26 rooms in total, so there's plenty of room to do a game jam.

The pictures we're using are from a game jam we hosted in the house in 2015 when we rented it. We do not have new pictures because we don't get access to the house until 1st of April and the current owners are renovating.

Risks and challenges

The main risk right now is that we do not have a signed contract since we are selling our current homes to get the loan with the bank. We are in agreement with the owners and are looking to sign a contract ahead of time, so that we have 6 months to get everything fixed with the bank if needed.
