The Global Game Jam is an amazing inspiring weekend of quick game development. Under a worldwide theme, the GGJ challenges teams from all over the world to create a game in 48 hours.

Like many things, the GGJ has changed a bit to adapt to our new epidemic situation. The 2021 edition will be completely online, and we decided to team up to create one large Dutch location!

If you buy your ticket after January 10, we will still send you a goodiebag, but we cannot guarantee they will arrive in time for the jam.

Game jam?

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.

3 day twitch 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!

GOODYBAGS/TSHIRTS

Thanks to our sponsors, we can send you a goodie bag that will make it a memorable experience.

If you buy your ticket after January 10, we will still send you a goodiebag, but we cannot guarantee they will arrive in time for the jam.

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 will be an online event. 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; please create an account before buying tickets.

While we all will miss the experience of jamming together at a physical location, this edition does give us the opportunity to jam together with the entire country for the first time!
