The premier game creation event for young creators is back this July & August

Register your site now and and join educators around the world helping students learn the art of game creation and make a game of their own.

Similar to the primary GGJ® event in January, GGJ NEXT® is designed to stimulate collaboration and teamwork; it is not a competition.

If you are an educator GGJ NEXT® supports you with our effective and engaging curriculum videos to teach basic concepts in game development and provide you with lesson plans and projects for you to take into your classroom and students.

Even if you have never taught game making or game design before, we give you the tools to empower you to help kids in your virtual classroom or community to be able to explore their creative thinking and problem-solving skills through games.

“If we can create a global community in which people can talk to one another and meet, we can make a huge step toward world peace. I had an excellent experience! In my opinion, GGJ Next is best for connecting two generations of video game makers. GGJ Next is the best framework to help both of us (Mentors and Kids) learn together and help one another. ” – Ali Saffari – Site Lead, Mashhad, Razavi Khorasan Province, Iran
