The Global Game Jam brings the community together for a weekend to make games (maximum of 48 hours).
The goal is to come together and make a game. All locations all over the world share the same theme and constraints for the jam. It is a unique opportunity for people to create, collaborate and practice their game making skills, and invites everyone of any skill level to take part. Previous experience is not necessary. Participants rapidly prototype game designs and hopefully inject new ideas to help grow the game industry. Designers, developers, artists, musicians, knitters, gardeners, architects, everyone and anyone is welcome to try their hand at making a game during the GGJ.
You can lean many new skills and support your team by contributing ideas, playtesting, and giving moral support. You can as well work on a non-digital game, which won’t require programming skills! The brief time span is meant to help encourage creative thinking to result in small but innovative and experimental games. The GGJ is open source, hardware & software agnostic and all projects are released under a Creative Commons license.
Come and try out new ideas and push yourselves, within reason.
