- St Louis GGJ

Lopata Gallery at Washington University
    • This event is open to all local creators (and even their remote friends)! Students from any campus are also welcome.

      Accessible Parking:

      We are excited to announce the St Louis Global Game Jam locale and all the information that comes with it. Online and In-Person participants are both welcome!

      For Global Game Jam, we will be using the STLGameDev Event Discord to handle announcements and online participation.

      (Please feel welcome to also join our community-run Discord, which is active year-round even after GGJ ends.)

      Visitors will be on guest internet, so it’d be more reliable to download large files at home before arriving. This venue was designed primarily for students with notebooks. Guests with “LAN party"-style full tower PC rigs may struggle to find comfortable spacing and wattage accommodations. Folks with large computer and electrical needs should adjust their technology footprint accordingly and consider remote participation.
      Venue may fill up fast. Reach out and let us know if you have any questions.
