Eldon Building
    • Welcome to the site page for the University of Portsmouth GGJ!

      The University of Portsmouth (UoP) has been teaching games development for the last 17 years, being one of the first courses of its kind in the UK. As a student on our TIGA-accredited degrees, you'll develop the skills to turn ideas and concepts into reality, using industry-standard design and development techniques.

      For the first time, we aim to be a Global Game Jam site! This event will be hosted in Eldon Building by the School of Creative Technologies, and is open to all current staff and students at UoP.

      In the interest of wellbeing and productivity, we will be hosting this jam based on real world "work-hours". The standard 9am till 5pm, from Monday to Friday. The building will be open till 8pm on most days, so you can stay and work longer if needed (but please don't exceed 48 work hours).

      We will be hosting this event in a hybrid manner, so you are not required to physically be here in Eldon building (you may Jam from home if you wish!). Discord will be used to facilitate virtual participants, but please do attend physically if able!

      More details and full itinerary will follow at a later date.
