The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is theworld’s largest game jam event. 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 atthe same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is allcondensed into a 48 hour development cycle. Although the event is heavilyfocused on programming, there are many other areas where people who don’t code can contribute to a game.
