Jam Site Description: 

Thanks for your interest in the second annual Global Game Jam in New Orleans! Our site will be located at Scale Workspace at 612 Andrew Higgins Blvd. 

For the jam, please enter the building on the Camp St side. There's a staircase with doves and a bunch of neat stuff in it (trust me, you'll know when you see it) that you can take up to the second floor. 

There is a 45-minute loading zone on the Camp St side of the building that you may use to bring your equipment into the building. If you need to coordinate with the organizer please email [email protected]

Unfortunately parking isn't great being downtown. I suggest parking beneath the Pontchartrain Expressway which is pretty cheap for all-day parking, and is only a short walk to Scale. Alternatively you can park in the neighborhood on the other side of the expressway for free. If parking isn't your jam, the St Charles Streetcar stop is right next to the building. 

During the jam, we will provide some snacks, lunch, and dinner to the jammers courtesy of our sponsors: Revelry Labs, High Voltage, TurboSquid, Parallax Visions, Scale Workspace, and Kinemagic. 

We look forward to jamming with you!
