Join This Jam Site
Notes: 

Come join us for this year's Global Game Jam at the Facebook campus in Menlo Park, CA! We'll do everything we can to make you feel at home while you make new friends, stretch your skills, and team up to create your own amazing games.

Please make sure to register on our EventBrite site. We will require you to have a ticket to attend.

This site doesn't have a competition. Everyone makes games, everyone shows off what they've made at the end, and in the middle we all eat together. We've had the most fun when teams work together and new teammates are welcome, so we're going to keep doing that.

Bring a sleeping bag and pad if you're planning to stay overnight - the floor is hard. But everything else is as awesome as we can make it.
