Mobo Game Jam is a global game-making challenge which will see young innovators from across the UK and Nigeria compete to create games that combine creativity, compassion, and computational thinking to solve a worldwide problem.

Designed to be accessible to all, the Mobo Game Jam encourages inclusivity, sustainability, and humanity in nurturing young innovators’ ideas.

Individuals and teams aged 8 to 18 years are invited to submit a game or game concept that explores how to achieve a future where everyone has access to clean water. Entries must meet a set brief, which will be delivered by the renowned storyteller ‘Grandma Wura’, a fictional character created by Proud African Roots.
