Global Game Jam Online 2021, Jan 29–31

It’s soon time for GGJ Online 2021! We’ll be having it on our Discord server. The jam site in Malmö will start January 29

Really quick, what’s a game jam?

An event where you meet up with others to attempt making a game within a limited time on decided themes/constraints. Join one to learn, network, be productive and to have an enjoyable time! They are similar to hackathons but for games and playful prototypes.

The Global Game Jam is an annual global event that takes place at physical locations and puts a lot of emphasis on collaboration, experimentation and innovation. Due to the on-going pandemic situation, it will take place online this year. Read more about GGJ at globalgamejam.org
