Global Game Jam is just over a month away! This year, there are three sites in London:
Be nice to all jam at the same site, rather than spread around everywhere, so if anyone has a preference or has already registered at one location, let us know in the comments.
Don't be put off by the start-finish times. You can come late on Friday or early Saturday if you have a job or family commitments (though usually the earlier you get there, the better).
For anyone not familiar with GGJ:
The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event taking place around the world at physical locations. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development. It is the growth of an idea that in today’s heavily connected world, we could come together, be creative, share experiences and express ourselves in a multitude of ways using video games – it is very universal. The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48 hour development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.
The GGJ stimulates collaboration and is not a competition.
