Global Games Jam 2016

  • over 2 years ago by Jason Magee

Global Game Jam (GGJ) is an annual event in which people get together for a weekend to create games. In 2014 GGJ had 485 sites across 76 countries. This years is next week from the 29th to the 31st.

I am entering the one hosted in Guernsey with a team of friends. We’ve met up a few times now to figure out a genre and nailed it down to 3 but a theme is announced on Friday so that could blow our existing ideas out the water. Technology wise, we’re going to use GameMaker Studio which is free, although I own a Pro licence from a previous Humble Bundle.

Are any of you entering this year? It’s not too late to sign up, you can find your nearest site here. The website also has a list of games made over the years which is worth checking out here.
