Get on the A MAZE. Train Jam from JHB to Playtopia Festival this December

Welcome to the 2nd A MAZE. Train Jam South Africa, in partnership with Goethe-Institut Johannesburg.

The main goal of this first A MAZE. Train Jam South Africa is to bring, with the generous support by Goethe-Institut Johannesburg, newcomers, student game makers and digital artists around Johannesburg to the 2nd Playtopia Festival in Cape Town and to meet with the international and national scene of playful media creators like in the good old days of A MAZE. / Johannesburg.

Besides the 20 full sponsored tickets for talents from Johannesburg, there is this year 25 more tickets for sale for jammers who are excited to support the idea of a train jam, building communities, making new friends and are ready for adventures.


Departure from Park Station Johannesburg: December 1, 2019 – 12:30
Arrival at Cape Town Train Station: December 2, 2019 – 15:30/18:00**

Please note that you need to cover 3 extra nights until Playtopia festival opening on Thursday December 5th.
The train company changed travel dates to Wednesday, Friday and Sunday … taking the Wednesday train would mean we will miss the festival opening and cannot show the games at the exhibition.

This ticket includes a license to jam at A MAZE. Train Jam South Africa, snacks, coffee and water, a unique t-shirt, part of the train jam hypertalks and exhibition and access to a self-pay half price (300ZAR instead of 600ZAR) festival ticket supported by Playtopia for Playtopia. Link and password to the 50% discount festival pass will be sent after registration.
