We had another record-breaking year at Global Game Jam. 28,837 people registered for 518 jam sites in 78 countries and 5438 games were produced. We estimate actual in-person participation to be about 21,000 people, based on registered team members and known number of organizers.

...and the last hour in Hawaii goes away, it's time to say a BIG THANK YOU to all our volunteers, regional coordinators, site organizers, collaborators, that have put so much effort in making this a reality. Also, thanks to all our participants, we hope you've had as much fun as we have making this for you. The Global Game Jam is a great opportunity to connect with people, to share experiences, and create something. Videogames do not escape to our own cultures, and it's a great moment to step back and admire and celebrate our differences and our similarities.
