playful challenges


In the Linz Hackathon/Makerthon, the city invites all interested parties to spend a weekend working together on ideas for games in the city. These can be digital games, classic board games or games or play equipment in public spaces.

Whether solo, in a team or across generations - the main thing is that the games developed address a current challenge (e.g. with AI, digitalisation, social issues, the environment, climate protection, etc.), which can raise awareness or even be solved through playful discussion.

Take part from 15 to 17 March 2024 at last by Schachermayer and develop your game for our Linz of the future!
There is a total of 12.500 euros to be won!

(1x 5.000 euros for the best digital game idea, 1x 5.000 euros for the best analog game idea, and 1x 2.500 euros for the best game idea for social engagement)

Registration is now open using the form provided below until 13. March 2024!

Note: If you sign up as a team, each person must register individually!
