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.
