It’s that time of year again, when aspiring and seasoned developers alike come together for some extreme game-making. That’s right, it is time for the Global Game Jam (GGJ), and this year we have two sites lined up for Perth both North and South of the river!
Haven’t been to GGJ before? Want to know what it’s all about?
Here’s a quick overview from the Global Game Jam folks:
The goal is to come together and make a video game, or non-digital game like a board game or card game. Participants rapidly prototype game designs and hopefully inject new ideas to help grow the game industry. We share a common theme and constraints. We ask participants to create a game from beginning to end in a prescribed time (maximum of 48 hours). The brief time span is meant to help encourage creative thinking to result in small but innovative and experimental games.
It will be free to join in the fun at both Perth sites, but places are limited. So if you’re keen to get your game on, be sure to sign up to one of the following locations:
