Global Game Jam 2020, Jan 31–Feb 02

It’s soon time for Global Game Jam 2020! We’ll have it again at Game Habitat’s DevHub

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! 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.

Logistics

Building Access
We’ll be at the reception to buzz you in between 16:00–18:00. If there’s no response to ringing the doorbell you can ping me on Discord (evnh#7915) or call the number on the door. The jam will take place at a single main area (with options to use certain rooms and other areas)

Internet Access – We’ll have good enough access without worry

Sleeping – because of the security issues involved, we’ll recommend “napping”. There’ll be spaces for “napping” quite peacefully
