Hi and welcome
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 16:00 on Friday evening for everyone to meet. The themes will be announced by Global Game Jam at 17:00 so that the fun can begin and ending at 18:00 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:
