WHO CAN JOIN?
Everyone is welcome. From all skill levels, age, etc. If you are uncertain, feel free to contact the organizers (us)!
However, Global Game Jam does have an age-requirement of being at least 18-years old to participate.
WHAT TO BRING?
- Bring your Laptop / Workstation
- Extension Cords
- Sleeping Bags
- Charging Cables / Plugs
- Storage Devices (Hard-Discs, PenDrives)
- For Tabletop Designers, bring your own stationeries and protective sheets to not make a mess.
2) Pre-formed Teams
- Individuals (the OG format)
We love developers to meet up with new developers and form new ideas so we'll also be running Idea Pitching and Team Formation sessions. We always encourage new collaborations!
- Pre-Formed Teams
For groups that have a fixed team that want to participate, you will have to add a challenge of your choice.
- Either using the 'Random Game Name Generator' inclusion to the Theme. Randomize three and pick one.
- Using ChatGPT to ask for a game suggestion.
This will be a additional element for teams that want to challenge themselves and have a bit of fun while you're at it.
