Want to make a video game in a no pressure environment?

The University of York and IGGI, invite you to try out your skills by joining us over the weekend of 31st Jan - 2nd Feb to be part of the Global Game Jam 2020!

Bring along your friends and make a game together, or come and meet new friends.

Following the GGJ 202 theme release at 17:00 on 31st January, join 40,000+ jammers around the world making something fun in the course of a weekend.

No code experience? No problem.

Whether you're an industry veteran or a total beginner, anyone is welcome to try their hand at making a game – no code experience is required (although having computer skills helps, and we're sure you've got those!).

And not all games have to be made by computer - if you want to design a new analogue game, you are just as welcome at our GGJ site!
