Notes: 

We are excited to host the Global Game Jam in downtown Frederick!  

Organized by the Frederick Game Dev Meetup Group and sponsored by Cowork Frederick.

If you would like to speak with the organizers, or chat with other participants in advance, join our Discord channel!

Who Can Attend?

There are no experience requirements to attend -- we welcome anyone with an interest in games, and will be looking for a variety of skills including: art, sound, music, game design, and programming.

Please try to attend for most of the weekend, as a courtesy to the other jammers.

Depending on the number of participants, we may be able to all work together, or to break up into multiple teams.  We welcome any variety of tools and types of games as well, including tabletop and board games, etc.

Food & Drinks

Participants will be responsible for their own food and drinks, but there are a number of local restaurants, cafes, and shops within short walking or driving distances.

We will provide snacks and drinks, but we encourage participants to bring their own, or some to share, as well!

Sleeping

Participants will be responsible for finding their own sleeping accommodations for the two nights of the jam.
