21 September 2022Ty Talor: “Global Game Jam's ability to connect people forces innovation by providing restrictive prompts, giving people the venues to meet, iterate, inspire, and create prototypes. My general advice to anyone who asks how to get into the game industry is: do as many game jams as possible!”

Please join us in congratulating Zain ul Hussan on his promotion to Director of Technology of Global Game Jam! Zain has been toiling tirelessly behind the scenes keeping our website up and running so you all can register your sites, join the jam, upload your games and create your teams. He is also working hard on a new and updated version of the site that will hopefully launch in time for GGJ 2024 so keep your eyes out for that.
