About Global Game Jam

Game Jams foster innovation and experimentation. If you have ever wanted to make a game, be a part of a team, or go outside of your usual working method, then a game jam is for you. It's all about making games and in the GGJ you're part of a global experiment in creativity.

The goal of the Global Game Jam is to provide a vehicle for professional developers, students and hobbyist to come together and have an incredible experience in collaboration and inventiveness. The GGJ works perfectly into the mission of the International Game Developers Association, "connecting members with their peers and promoting professional development." A Game Jam is not a competition, it is unique "idea space" where sometimes things work and sometimes they don't.

Global Game Jam™(GGJ) was established in 2009 as an IGDA event with great success and media attention. Lives were changed, jobs found, ideas sold, collaborations and opportunities abound.
