One of the great traditions that has developed in nine years of Global Game Jam ® is the production of gorgeous posters for individual sites. 2017 is no exception, though with over 700 locations around the world we can't show you all of them. Instead, here are just a few that have caught our eye here at GGJ headquarters...
Some went for the classic video game character look, such as Valdivia in southern Chile:
Bristol in the United Kingdom also gave us a colourful cast of characters, though with a more cutesy theme:
And the University of Suffolk has beautifully captured the spirit of the jam - working together to make something wonderful:
For their first ever jam, Armenia went with a very literal "jam" theme:
And Flensburg in Germany also gave us a tasty offering:
Some sites created imaginary video game worlds, such as Lithuania:
And Melbourne, Australia packed theirs with local references:
At the other end of the complexity scale, other sites went with simple, bold designs, such as the Unity 3D site in San Francisco:
Cambridge in the United Kingdom also favoured sharp, bright lines:
Meanwhile, Tunisia in Africa favoured a textured, hand-made aesthetic:
Santiago de Chile gave us this chaotic cartoon scene:
And finally, in their weekend program, Macedonia reminded us of the potential pitfalls in video games:
