Details

The Global Game Jam is the world's largest game jam event taking place around the world at physical locations.

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 Co-op will be open during the entire event and there are food options within walk-able distances at all* hours. (*if you consider 2am Dunkin Doughnuts "real" food.)

The GGJ stimulates collaboration and is not a competition.

This event is $20 for non desk renting members of the co-op. Please bring cash at the door.

The structure of a jam is usually that everyone gathers on Friday late afternoon, watches a short video keynote with advice from leading game developers, and then a secret theme is announced. All sites worldwide are then challenged to make games based on that same theme, with games to be completed by Sunday afternoon.

You don't need to come with a team, solo and impromptu teams are welcome!

The jam is known for helping foster new friendships, increase confidence and opportunities within the community. The jam is always an intellectual challenge. People are invited to explore new technology tools, trying on new roles in development and testing their skills to do something that requires them to design, develop create, test and make a new game in the time span of 48 hours.
