It is that time of year again! Preparations are underway for the 11th annual Global Game Jam 2019! This year the jam is happening on the 25th - 27th of January 2019, so dust off your game making skills and get ready!
Last year we welcomed nearly 43,000 jammers in 803 sites across 108 countries, and we created over 8,600 games together!
We are so proud to still be the biggest and most diverse gathering of game creators in the world, and we welcome you to become part of the GGJ family for 2019 to help us grow our community bigger and spread the joy of game jamming to even more people.
If you want to run a site for 2019, you can register your site here. One of our volunteer Regional Organizers will be in touch to check you are all set up for success and help you with any issues or questions you may have. Please be patient with them, they are all volunteers and sometimes have a lot of sites to get through.
If you’re new to organising a GGJ site, don’t be scared - you’ll have plenty of support from the GGJ community and we’re here to help make your jam great! Have a look through our FAQ for Site Organisers for some idea of what to expect. You can always email questions to our help team, or talk to the community on Twitter @globalgamejam, just be sure to remember #GGJ19 hashtag.
Once you have spoken to your RO, and they are happy to approve your site, you'll be added to the most amazing Slack community where organisers all over the whole world prepares for a weekend of creativity and collaboration like nothing else on the planet.
Let’s make 2019 the jam best one yet!
Yours in jam,
Jo, Anna, Sabriana, Hernán, Lorenzo, Gwen and Johnson #GGJ19 Executive Committee
