Jam Site Description: 

Games Wales Game Jam #4 - GGJ17

Are you a creative games designer, artist, programmer or audio designer up for a challenge? If so, come and be part of the Global Game Jam. You will have the weekend to conceive and build a game.

Join up with over 90 countries (we had 632 Jam-sites last year) in a 48-hour mad dash to create something!

Doors will be open from 4pm on Friday evening for everyone to meet. The themes will be announced by Global Game Jam at 5pm so that the fun can begin and ending at 6pm on Sunday.

Do not come to the Jam with a team (This is GGJ policy!). Everyone will have some time to think and pitch an idea. Use this as a chance to collaborate with new friends or peers you don't know.

It doesn’t matter what tech/tools you use to develop your projects - GameMaker, Unity, Unreal, HTML5, Cardboard and cutlery, you can use whatever you want... and any type of game (including non-digital games like board, party, card games etc).

Everyone taking part will need to bring their own computers and equipment (preferably laptops). We are only able to provide power, Wi-Fi, chairs and desk space.

Games will be submitted to the Global Game Jam website on Sunday before the 3 pm deadline. Teams will then have the opportunity to present their game to everyone.

A big thank you to our sponsors:
