Global Game Jam 2017

20th January,2017 to 22nd January, 2017

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.

We have a mix of older laptops available with the following software: Adobe Creative Suite (including Flash Builder), MS Office, Visual Studio. These computers can support various development environments including Java, Python, Game Maker, Processing, JavaScript/HTML5, and C#.

Q: I’ve never made a game before!

A: Great! Maybe you don’t know how to program but can provide assets (art, sound, etc…) or you are an experienced game player and want to take a stab at testing or design. We want you here!
We’ll also be making tabletop games (board, card, live action, etc…) so don’t let not being able to program keep you from participating!

Q: What kind of skills should I have to participate?

A: It depends! Do you want to make a digital game or a non-digital one? It’s great to have knowledge in programming and game design, in visual art and sound and music, and in writing. Rather than think that way however, try this: “What kind of skills do you want to practice at the game jam?”. This is a great environment to try new things!
