HERE WE GO!
The jam has started! If you have a ticket you will be kept up to date through our Discord. Our stream is publicly available and can be viewed by everyone by clicking here . We hope you all have a great weekend and we can’t wait to see all of the results!
We are a group of GGJ enthousiasts that want nothing more than host (another) fun and successful GGJ during these crazy times.
We are experienced in hosting both physical as well as online jams. Our group consists of members that are either professionally or academically involved in the gaming industry.
You can count on us to help make this years GGJ a success for you and your team!
Game jams are comparable to hackathons, but for games. In under 48 hours, you create a game from scratch, including design, artwork, building and testing. Game jams revolve around inspiring one another, going crazy with experimental ideas and celebrating how wonderful game development is.
What do I get?
a large social community
In this online edition we offer you a large social community.
Through our Discord server, we will provide you with the tools to easily find others to form a team. Also this is where we will post announcements. We will have various channels where you can, for example, showcase your game and chat with the other teams.
Weekend long stream
In our Twitch stream you can see what others are up to, watch in depth interviews with professional in the game industry, play party games and more!
Goodies (for a small price)
For logistical reasons we decided not to send out goodybags this year. However because we still wanted to give you something extra, we have created our own spreadshirtshop. Here you can buy all sorts of goodies, from hoodies and spreadshirt to even a mouth mask, with a custom design made by our amazing artist DelfoPinto. Check it out!
What do I need?
The GGJ is mostly attended by game students and professional game developers, though we invite everyone who’s excited about game development to come! Jammers work in teams, but don’t worry: if you don’t have a team yet, you can assemble one on the (digital) spot. In general, how you get your tickets doesn’t influence team assembly. This means you can order individually.
When ordering, don’t forget that we just offer the community. We trust you will bring everything you will need to create a game, or be part of a game developing team. If you’re not sure what you need to make a game, we’re sure the friends in your new team will be happy to give you some advice before the jam!
This year, the GGJ NL will be an online event again. For everyone’s safety, we have made sure all aspects of the jam are online, and we encourage everyone to participate remotely. This also gives you the unique opportunity to form a team with jammers from all over the country. We will use Discord as our main communications platform again.
Please note that despite our name, we do not have exclusivity over online jams. Visit the globalgamejam.org website to see all jams in the region.
