Global Game Jam NL
Innovation – Experimentation – Collaboration
The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world’s largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations. 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 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. GGJ 2019 is January 25-27 at a location near you. More info on GGJNL locations can be found here.
