Global Game Jam

January 29, 2010 5:00 pmtoJanuary 31, 2010 5:00 pm

NYU Game Center and ITP are co-hosting a weekend of digital game-making January 29-31, as part of the second annual Global Game Jam (GGJ). GGJ is ‘the largest game jam EVER’, with 125 locations around the world, ranging from Bogota to Copenhagen to Manila (see http://www.globalgamejams.org/Locations/country for a full list).

The NYU GGJ takes place at 721 Broadway, and runs from 5:00 p.m. Friday, January 29 to 5:00 p.m. Sunday, January 31. All participants in the GGJ worldwide will be constrained by the same rules and limitations, and the final creations will be shared on the GGJ website.

Game Jam participants work in small teams to complete games by the end of the 48 hours. You sign up as an individual and form teams with like-minded jammers on site. Though it helps to have experience in building games, all are welcome to participate with your graphical, audio, programming or other skills!

In order to participate, you must register at http://www.globalgamejams.org as soon as possible — space is limited! Make sure to select “New York University Game Center” as your jam site in your profile in order to be signed up.

For more information about the Global Game Jam (http://www.globalgamejams.org) or to volunteer for the event, please contact Matt Parker (mp612@nyu.edu).
