    • Farset Labs has organised Northern Ireland’s only public site of the international “Global Game Jam” hackathon for the past 11 years. For the fourth year in a row, we're partnering with our friends at the NI Game Dev Network to coordinate both the in person site but also to support anyone participating remotely.

      You'll be well fed throughout the event on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

      Get your ticket on Eventbrite - they're used to plan building capacity and catering orders!

      Join the chat on the Farset Labs Discord!

      Keep up to date social media using the #ggjbelfast hashtag.


      Your ticket price partially covers catering for all 3 days, with the majority of costs covered by our sponsors.

      Concessionary prices are available to those with low/no income. Use the promo code GGJ-CONCESSION at checkout to buy your tickets with a 50% discount.
