After a long time of reaching out for stories from around the world, Global Game Jam has produced a book ‘Global Game Jam Stories’ edited by Lindsay Grace and Susan Gold, and collected from many contributions of the GGJ community.
Lindsay led the project on putting the book together. When asked about the process of making the book, he said: “The charm of the book is the way in which each individual story weaves a sense for the entire Global Game Jam community. Some of the stories are funny, some are sad, but each is about individual actions contributing to something larger. It's amazing to see the common threads in both photos and stories across continents.“
