It’s an exciting time of year; the Australia Day weekend, when we celebrate the Lucky Country with a 48-hour game jam with the rest of the world.
Let’s Make Games is proud to host the Global Game Jam in WA again, and this year we’re running two sites, one on each side of the Swan River!
The Global Game Jam is an annual game development event that sees game developers from every corner of the globe spend 48 hours over a single weekend to come together and create games. Western Australia has had a long history of participating in the GGJ, and we’re very happy to continue the tradition.
This year we have a great sponsor on board that will help us make this the best Global Game Jam yet. A big thanks to Autodesk for supporting the WA game making community! A word from Autodesk:
