Jam Site Description: 

This is our fourth time running the Global Game Jam in the Green Bay area. 

We are proud to be co-hosting the site with professors from UWGB!  As always we will have local speakers for the first half hour of the jam followed by a projected video of the jam theme.  This will be followed by an hour of brainstorming and then jamming all weekend (the jam site is open 24hrs a day from the time we start until the presentations).  A detailed schedule will be posted closer to the jam as we finish rounding up speakers.  Speakers will probably include local developers from Lost Boys Interactive and other area businesses.  We are securing pizza to be provided on Friday night and Saturday night.    

There will be a culminating "show and tell" session at 4pm on Sunday in the main area of Urban Hub.  

A note about this "hybrid" jam:

While we'd love to see you in person, we realize this is the age of covid and you may not feel comfortable participating onsite in all of our activities.  You may register as an onsite jammer or a remote jammer; we're fine with either.  When you register to be remote, you can still participate in the jam launch on Friday and the final presentations on Sunday.  Also, troughout the jam we will be streaming jam sessions via Twitch (details pending).   In addition, we will be actively using the discord server for GBGJ! 

We will be following the Covid-19 protocols of the venue (Urban Hub Green Bay).  These protocols are set by the city of Green Bay, since this building is owned by the chamber of commerce.  Current protocols are face masks are not required for vaccinatted people and recommended for those not vaccinated.  Full details can be found here: https://greenbaywi.gov/1237/COVID-19-Resources
