Applications will be open until 25th of March 2019. After that applicants will be selected and contacted during the week of 25th to 29th of March.

What is the Isolation Jam?

Imagine a game jam, in the middle of nowhere, north west Iceland. Enjoy and experience the isolation and silence of the Icelandic countryside and get inspired while making games.


Game developers from all over the world have traveled all the way up here to make games and pet lambs. This time around though, we are trying something new. Instead of the farm we will hosting the jam at the fishing lodge Laxahvammur in an adjacent valley, 5 minute drive from Kollafoss Game Farm.

…and yes, you will be able to pet lambs. We will make sure of that.

You might ask, why the change in plans? Why not host the game jam on the good old farm. There are two reasons for that. The first one is that the farm was starting to get a bit too small for an event of this size. And second of all, We just welcomed a new member into the family in 2018, and therefor we now use the spare bedrooms for diapers and baby stuff. ;)


Laxahvammur lodge, in Miðfjörður, municipality ofHúnaþing Vestra. 5 minute drive from Kollafoss Game Farm, 25 minute drive from Hvammstangi. 3 hour drive from Reykjavík.

The Miðfjarðará river is one of the best angling rivers in Iceland which is why we have this amazing venue right by the river bed, and it just so happens that the angling season will not have started when Isolation Jam is, allowing us to have this whole venue all for ourselves and our games.
