Global Game Jam

4:30pm, Fri 20th January - 8:30pm, Sun 22nd January

York St John University

Join thousands of people around the world for Global Game Jam 2017. A great opportunity to meet people, make friends - and have a playable game to show for it at the end of the day. 

You have 48 hours to make a game, starting from when the theme is announced on Friday night. We'll facilitate the creation of teams from those that turn up, making best use of the skills that are there - and then it's up to you to be as ambitious as you like. On Sunday night everyone will get together along with our industry judges to play-test the games. Winners will be announced around 8pm, with prizes across a range of categories from best mechanics to best art. 

This is our 4th Game Jam in York and this year we're really pleased to be co-organising with York St John, who will be our hosts for the weekend. 

If you're interested in taking part register on eventbrite - spaces are limited and going fast.

The games that were developed last year under the theme of Ritual can be found here.
