Global Game Jam is an international hands-on Game Festival which takes place in over 450 cities world wide on just one weekend. The participants will produce experimental computer games which will be uploaded to the main GGJ website at the end of the weekend. From there everyone can download and play the games.
Global Game Jam is a wonderful opportunity for participants to expand their horizons, challenge themselves, and meet new people. Right away you will start developing a playable game with strangers who share the same passion as you in just two days. At the end you are tired but happy.
