It’s so soon! We posted a cool schedule on the event page.
We’re also having a pre-jam-drink-up at Pixel Kafé.
NMS started with twelve guys in a basement in 2008, we’ve come a long way since then, as have games as a whole. The past years we’ve peaked at almost a hundred participants, each making all kinds of strange and wonderful things.
The event has always tried to be as inclusive as possible, mainly by staying completely free.
However, looking back at the list of participants of previous years it’s looking all too homogeneous, in many ways reflecting our industry at large. We want to be a part of a change for the better, so starting with the 2015 event we’re changing things up.
The first step is the sign up process, instead of assigning seats on a first-come first-serve basis, we will now open up for “requests” for a one week period. After that the organizers will try to distribute spots in the best possible manner.
Signing up early is still important, but it no longer guarantees you a spot.
Once the spots have been assigned you will be notified (even if you didn’t get a spot) and can start booking your trip/accommodation.
A waiting list will be kept in case the venue fills up before everyone gets a spot.
A new thing for 2015 is the possibility to sign up as a group. Pick a unique group name together with a maximum of three friends and we’ll treat you as a single entity. This means you no longer have to worry about your friends getting a spot and you being without.
Please don’t make groups bigger than four people.
The second step is our adaptation of a Safer Space Policy. It’s far too easy not to consider your fellow participants experience when you are in a place you’re comfortable in. By explicitly stating that any harassment is unacceptable, we hope to remind participants to be on their best behavior and consider everyone’s experience while at No More Sweden.
This year, we’re back at STPLN in Malmö. The dates are 17th to 19th of July.
Here’s the best 20 seconds from each game presentation, I made a full edit but it ended up at almost an hour, so it felt like complete overkill. I had to cut the board games because they made no sense when presented that quickly.
The top voted game this year with 17% of the votes was BJERN by Kian Bashiri and Maria Norkvist.
In second place came I LOVE HORSE by Mårten Brüggemann and Martin Jonasson.
The third top voted game was A Fistfull of Blueberries by Emil Nilsson, Martin Rasmusson, Rasmus Jarl and Linus.

The attentive jammer also notices the International Local Multiplayer Championships planned for Saturday night. Since everyone’s been making multiplayer games lately, we figured NMS would be a great venue to challenge each other in the games we’ve made. We’ll figure out more details during the jam, but make sure to bring any zany games you’ve made and we’ll shout about them some.
If the gods of internet smile upon us, we’ll live stream the entire thing too.
Oh, and since the weathers’ looking promising, don’t forget your swimwear!
NMS2013 has now filled all 80 spots. See you in a few weeks!
Hello everyone. I’ve been meaning to write this blog post for about a month now, but, as it turns out, it releasing two games for four separate platforms takes up quite a bit of my time. Sorry!
Either way, No More Sweden 2013 is a thing! We’ll be at the same location as last year, you can read more about this on the information page. That page will be continuously updated with more info as we get it. You can go there and sign up right now!
One of our ambitions this year is to make an effort to even out the gender balance for the event. Last year about 10% of the attendees were women, we know we can do better here and we’ll need your help to do it.
There are two parts to this plan. Firstly we need to make our event as inclusive as possible, this basically means being nice to everyone and respecting them for who they are.
We’re pretty good at this already, but there’s always room for improvement.
The second part is outreach, bring anyone you feel can make NMS a more interesting place and we’ll have a great time together!
Barbecue at 19:00 today, we’ll provide the fire. You bring something to grill.
