Introducing the Global Game Jam Indie Studio Support Program!

GGJ Indie Studio Supporter Graphic

We are excited to announce the launch of the Global Game Jam Indie Studio Supporter program. 


Created as part of our ongoing commitment to supporting and strengthening our community of jammers, the Indie Studio Supporter Program was envisioned as a way that smaller game studios can both be a supporter of Global Game Jam and be supported by GGJ year-round. The program aims to make financial support of the organization accessible to smaller studios in ways that our event sponsorship might not be and equitable to those around the globe. Our goal is to create a true partnership between GGJ and our indie studio supporters through promoting your work, creating community and more. 


The Indie Studio Supporter page will go live on the Global Game Jam website the week of July 1, but the application form is now open! Sign up now to be featured on the page when it launches. We will be highlighting our first handful of indie studio supporters in our next newsletter! [Update: The Indie Studio Supporter Page is now live! Check out some amazing indie studios here.]


Join here: Global Game Jam Indie Studio Supporter 


We truly want this to be an effective and useful program that helps serve the needs of indie studios. We know that the jam means so much to so many of you, and we are committed to continuing the work we do there. However, we’re also looking to experiment and innovate around ways that we can better engage with you. 


You will see more from GGJ on the program over the coming weeks as we roll it out. If you’re part of an indie game studio, we’d love for you to join! If you’re not a fit as an indie studio supporter, there are still ways you can support Global Game Jam. Whether it’s as an individual donor, as an event sponsor and/or just by sharing with any indie studios you might know and across your networks to help get the word out.
