2024 Feedback Form!

Submitted by xenjade on

Hi all! If you haven't yet, please take a moment to fill out the 2024 feedback form, that would be very helpful!


(Did you find food to be an important part of your experience? This is how you can guarantee there will be food next year ;) )

Thanks for jamming with us!

    • We are back with an IN-PERSON jam site! Join us at 370 Jay for something old, and something a little new.

      This year our site encourages local developers and faculty to register to be a mentor for a student team! Participants that opt-in to be a mentor will be placed on a team comprised of student or amateur devs to work alongside them on the project.

      PLEASE ALSO REGISTER THROUGH OUR RSVP LINK TO ENSURE ACCESS TO THE BUILDING: https://nyu-game-center.ticketleap.com/ggj/

      Getting Here: 370 Jay Street. We're still in Downtown Brooklyn right off the A/C/F/R at Jay Street / Metrotech. Enter the building on Jay Street next to the Marriot.

      Jam Hours:
      Friday - 7PM-9PM (Doors at 6PM)
      Saturday - 9AM-9PM
      Sunday - 9AM-3PM (Judging 4PM-6PM, Awards at 7PM).

      NYU Game Center Jam Kick-off & Site Structure:
      On Friday at 6PM, we’ll kick things off with the official GGJ keynote videos and theme announcement (the same kick-off that happens all over the world!). Following the kick-off, everyone starts to brainstorm ideas, form teams, and make games. The weekend is casually structured, and you’re welcome to work at whatever pace you like, with whomever you like, using whatever you like.

      What you’ll need to bring:
      Any digital hardware you’d like to use to make a game
      (laptop, chargers, controllers, etc.)

      Game exhibition and awards:
      On Sunday at 4PM, everyone exhibits their game for all attendees to play. A team of judges (comprised of NYU Game Center faculty and local indie developers) give out a few fun awards.

      Do I need to be a game making expert to jam?
      No! The jam is a great place to learn some new skills. You can start with a non-digital game, join a team on Friday evening, or take advantage of the jam tools and teach yourself something new!

      I can’t attend the whole weekend! Can I come play the games on Sunday?
      Yes! The showcase on Sunday is open to everyone, and you are welcome to come play what everyone cranked out over the weekend!
