What we're about

Make a game in under 48 hours, and meet some amazing emerging designers for your personal projects. Each year, the Global Game Jam showcases the creative talents of more than 36,000 inspired programmers, artists, and designers at 700 sites in 95 countries around the world. We are proud to host a DC site.

Think of it as a hackathon for game development. We will come together, form teams (non-programmers welcomed too!), and make original games. The global phenomenon of the Game Jam will make news, while each local team builds new skills, be it in programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a two-day development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all backgrounds to participate and contribute.
