Event Details: 

Create a game in 48 hours! The yearly returning Global Game Jam will take place in Leeuwarden again this year for the 10th time! The event will once again be held in the beautiful old prison building: De Blokhuispoort.

What it's all about

The goal of the Global Game Jam is to create a game in 48 hours in a multidisciplinary team. The only guideline is the theme which is announced at the start of the event. It is possible to create both digital games and board games.

At the end of the jam, all games are presented and people can play eachothers games. In order to encourage experimentation and cooperation there will not be a competition.

All games are developed as open source. The end product and source files are uploaded to the main site on globalgamejam.org.

Teams

It is possible to participate with a preformed team, but you can also create a team on the spot. There's usually a good mix between preformed teams and individual participants and usually the preformed teams are also open to extra team members.

Facilities

There will be a small kitchen on location with a microwave, fridge, coffee machine and some other basic kitchen equipment. You can't prepare food there, but you can warm things up if you want to. However, we expect this will not be needed since there will be plenty of food and drinks.

Please bring your own equipment:
Computer/Laptop
Power extension chord
UTP cable (wi-fi is also available and preferable)
Headset
Controllers
Cables

There is good wi-fi coverage on location.

Food

Dinner, coffee and tea will be provided on site and are included with the entry ticket. Brunch is not included this year.
