Show your GGJ game at the Dutch Game Garden Network Lunch!

We hope you had a blast this weekend joining the Global Game Jam!
824 people joined the GGJNL locations in 2018. All the games that were made are posted on the official Global Game Jam website.

We’re curious which games were made at the Dutch locations, so we’d like to invite you to showcase your GGJ game at the Dutch Game Garden Network Lunch!

The lunch takes place on March 7, 12:00-14:00, on the 5th floor of the Beatrix Building, Jaarbeursplein 6, Utrecht. It’s completely free, but please sign up.

In case you’re interested to develop your game to a commercial release, Dutch Game Garden has a special program for you: our Incubation Try-Out Day. This also takes place on March 7. During the day, you will join experienced game developers and get a taste of where to start to make your game into a commercial product.

Sign up here for the Network Lunch & Incubation Try-Out

Global Game Jam 2018 has begun!

Happy jamming everyone!

Diversifiers announced

Before the start of Global Game Jam 2019, the offical diversifiers will be announced on the official Global Game Jam website.

Diversifiers are additional (optional) starting points for your game jam games. They can help you choose interesting directions and add an extra challenge. Some of the diversifiers for last year’s edition included making a bird your protagonist, create a game played with one single well timed tap or click, make all in-game sounds by using your voice or body, make a game that uses retro controllers and making a game using only a made-up language.
