Global Game Jam Sydney is a local site for the Global Game Jam, an annual event that takes place simultaneously in more than 140 locations around the world.
For 48 hours, over the weekend of Jan 24-26, a group of about 100 game designers, developers and artists - both amateur and professional - will come together for an intensive Jam Session, forming small creative teams to design and prototype innovative game ideas. We provide the space, the tools you need and even catering. You make the games, and the IP stays with you!
It's a fun weekend, but we also hope it's something more. We want to stimulate the game development scene in Australia. We have the talent, the creativity and the resources to create a truly Australian games industry, we just need the initiative to give it a go. We hope that Global Game Jam Sydney continues to be a spark that helps ignite the flame.
