Jam Site Description: 

University of the Arts London (UAL) is hosting Global Game Jam for the third time.

This time the event is proudly supported by Game Dev London.

It is organised by the BA (Hons) Games Design staff from the London College of Communication (LCC) campus placed in the heart of London at Elephant & Castle.

Due to COVID-19, it will be all hosted in a blended (hybrid) format. We hope to do as much as we can in person within the time and space allocated to us, but with the new Omicron variant, we might be forced to go online only (thus MS Teams backup space).

We will start on Wednesday 26th and carry on in-person till Friday 28th, 29th and 30th you will be able to complete the game online with your team

Individual teams may diverge into their own Teams/Discord channels.
