Hey everyone!

Just wanted to share the link to our Lethbridge Game Developers Discord for quick communication between organizers and participants: https://discord.gg/4BbhDvuj. Please use the GGJ 2024 channel for all things related to the jam - this is also where we will post important updates and links.

See you soon,
Ally

      Jam & Site Hours
      The jam will run from 5:30pm Friday, Jan 26th to 5:30pm Sunday Jan 28th.
      The physical site will be open during the following times. Note that outside of these times the room will be locked and inaccessible and will not be supervised by an organizer:
      4:30pm - 10pm Friday, Jan 26th
      9am - 10pm Saturday, Jan 27th
      9am - 6:30pm Sunday Jan 28th
      * Doors will open one hour before the jam starts, and it's recommended to arrive at least 30 minutes early or 45 minutes early if you need assistance with equipment.
      * There will be a presentation of the projects immediately following the jam which will run until around 6:30pm on Sunday.

      Site Amenities
      Security: Security will be on-site for the duration of the jam, however the college or jam organizers are not responsible for personal items.
      Accessibility: There is elevator access to the 3rd floor. For more information about other accessibility options please contact the organizer.
      Food & Drink: A snack table will be provided during the event with free drinks and small snacks. More food options are available nearby at the Fairway Plaza (approx. 3-5 min drive and 15-20 minute walk).

      On-Site vs Hybrid / Online
      While the jam will be hosted primarily from the in-person location we support online and hybrid options for remote participants via Discord where there will be a stream during the jam and channels for participants to communicate. Note that you do not need to be entirely in-person or entirely remote, and can switch between both options as needed. If this is your first jam or you will be joining without a preformed team we do highly recommend at least attending the first day in-person to help you meet your fellow jammers and join a team.
      * The Discord link will be sent out to participants 2 days before the jam starts.
      IMPORTANT: If you will be attending fully online please contact the supervisor. If there are no fully online participants then the event will not be streamed.
