The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is the world’s largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development.
Attn jammers! Global Game Jam gives creatives an opportunity to develop games among friends and new acquaintances in 48 hours with the Portland Indie Game Squad!
The event kicks off on Friday evening at the Art Institute of Portland with a keynote, icebreakers, idea generating activities, and team forming (approx. 1-2 hours). After jammers are satisfied with their ideas and teams, they will work on their games until they approach the deadline on Sunday afternoon, when they can share our games with each other in a showcase setting! To support a fun, inspiring environment, jammers are welcome to stay on site (48 hour access) at the Art Institute for the entire weekend.
The event is free, and registration is open to the public (18+). GGJ provides great opportunity for total beginners, industry veterans, and anything in between. PIGSquad will be hosting events leading up the the jam, and after for those who want to showcase their projects, and as always the last 2 hours of our jam will be used as a showcase.
To hold your place at the jam, sign up for a ticket via Eventbrite!
