Global Game Jam 2020
What is GGJ?
The GGJ brings the community together to work together for a weekend to make games. It is a unique opportunity for people to create, collaborate and practice their game-making skills, and invites every one of any skill levels to take part.
What Is a Jam?
"Jam" is a reference to musician jam sessions. The goal is to come together and make a game, either digital or non-digital (analog) game like a board game or card game. Participants rapidly prototype game designs and inject new ideas to help inspire and grow the global game industry. We share a common theme and constraints. We ask participants to create a game from beginning to end in a prescribed time (maximum of 48 hours). The deadline of 48 hours is meant to help encourage creative thinking which results in small but innovative and experimental games, some of which have been developed beyond the GGJ into a commercial success.
When is the Jam?The Global Game Jam® is an annual event. The GGJ will start at 5 PM on 31 January 2020 and goes for around 48 hours through 02 February 2020.
