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. This year, we're going online!
Join up with over 95 countries (we had 700 Jam-sites last year) in a 48-hour mad dash to create something!
Virtual doors will be open from 4pm on Friday evening for everyone to meet. The themes will be announced by Global Game Jam so that the fun can begin and ending at 5pm on Sunday.
Do not enter 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).
Participants will need to have access to your own equipment - we wil provide information on how to participate online closer to the time.
Games will be submitted to the Global Game Jam website on Sunday before the 3pm deadline. Teams will then have the opportunity to present their game to everyone.
About The Arcade Vaults
The Arcade Vaults, is an unique venue and community in the centre of Cardiff for all things videogaming. Founded in 2016 as an events company, they've gone on to support anyone who makes games, plays games both old and new, wants to learn about games, or would just like to engage with the community in this amazing world of games.
At the heart of The Arcade Vaults and its community are the players and the creators. They believe that everyone should have the opportunity to play videogames and even more so, anyone should be able to make them and understand how they are made.
