Winter Scene UCCS by Jeffrey M Foster
    • The Bachelor of Innovation Program and EPIIC will host the 13th Annual UCCS Global Game Jam at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs from January 26-28, 2024. The jam will be primarily held in-person in the BI Lab in Osborne Center A-206. The jamming starts at 5pm Friday 1/26/2024 (we will open our doors to hang out and catch up about 4:30pm).

      Remote participation is still being sorted out.

      Online servers and resources are TBD but we will use Discord again to organize.

      If you are a new participant and need the Discord server info please register for the event and then email Angus Chassels (UCCS Entrepreneur in Residence/UCCS Faculty) who is the organizer of this event.

      You can also contact Angus with any event questions by e-mail: [email protected]

      The Global Game Jam is a 48 hour event, but like many locations, our physical site closes at night (approx 1am-9am) so participants can get rested for the next day. REMEMBER: Participants should plan to attend the entire duration of the event in person (or online) as your team will need you to complete your game!

      Traditionally the focus in the past has been on PC video games but V/R & A/R, board, dice and card game makers are also very welcome.

      We have had some amazing table top games developed over the years!

      Registration is FREE but you MUST REGISTER to participate!! No exceptions!

      UCCS and the Global Game Jam organizers are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of race, color, sex, disability, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran’s status, age, or physical appearance.

      Event security is provided by the UCCS Campus Police.
