Signup to the 2019 Global Game Jam site, to join us for a full weekend of making games! No experience necessary, and you can work with folks you know or team up with new friends. Brought to you by Let’s Make Games and SAE Institute Perth!
How do you create a game in just one weekend?? You can form a team of people you know, make some new friends on the day, or work on a project solo if you’re super keen. Then simply listen to the opening keynote to find out the theme, and get to work! You’ll have until Sunday afternoon to create one or more games surrounding the theme. All rules are off (unless you like rules) and you can create anything from tabletop, analog, experimental, physical, AR and of course video game wise. Your imagination and sleep are the only restrictions!
- Where: SAE Institute Perth, 116-120 Roe St, Northbridge WA 6003
- When: Start time TBC Friday January 25, through to 7pm Sunday January 27.
- Cost: $25 a ticket to help cover costs.
- Signup: There are two parts to the signup process. First register with our Global Game Jam page, then sign up for the Perth Event through JamHost.
How does it work?
Everyone gathers on Friday late afternoon, watches a short video keynote with advice from leading game developers, and then the secret theme is announced. All sites worldwide are then challenged to make games based on that same theme, with games to be completed by Sunday afternoon.
As per always, we will have plenty of space for you to bring your laptop or desktop to hook up and jam away. You can order food with us when you sign up, and there will also be eating spaces, room to sleep, and on-site security.
