      What food will be available?
      - As always, we're aiming to provide pizza on the Saturday night however all jammers should ensure that they have enough snacks to see them through!

      Is this an 'all night' event?
      - GGJ 2024 is a 48 hour event - this does not mean you should, or feel pressured, to work through a full 48 hours.
      Jammers should act responsibly during this event, taking plenty of breaks and cease working when they are feeling tired.
      We encourage safe working practices and reserve the right to ask participants to leave should we feel that you are putting your own (or others) health and safety at risk.

      - Before the event contact [email protected] with any questions.

      I'm not a student at Abertay, can I still attend?
      - No, this event is open to students, invited graduates, academia and industry professionals only.

      If you work in games, academia or are are curious about games development and would like to attend, please contact us to discuss the potential for being invited to attend our site on [email protected].

      What is the hashtag so I can get to know my other jammers before the event?
