Notes: 

Welcome Jammers!

This is our first Gobal Game Jam in Rijeka, Croatia so we invite you to join this creative experience and try to make a playable game in 48 hours. 

Event starts 25.1. at 18:00 and ends 27.1. at 16:00. The detailed schedule is going to be announced later. Registrations on site will be open from 2PM so you can come earlier, pick up your accreditation, go check-in to Hostel and leave your things and then spend an hour or two enjoying Rijeka, sea views or a coffee on Korzo (main square)

Location of the event is at RiHub, coworking place for creative industry and central site of Rijeka - European capital of culture 2020. They were kind enough to provide us with the place. There will be space for making games, eating (internal kitchen), drinking (tons of coffee) and also toilets. Sleeping is provided in a beautiful hostel Happy in a center of Rijeka, 5m walk from GGJ site. For more questions see Q&A.
