Please note, this year we have the option to start Wednesday Jan. 27th if we want to. However, for now in the traditional spirit of GGJ, we’re defaulting to a Friday Jan. 29th start. Check back here for updates before the event. More coming soon!

Whether you’re a professional developer, hobbyist designer, a student, or new to the game; this is a great opportunity to meet new people and use your skills to create something special over 48 hours. Come be a part of the growing Game Dev community and make something cool while you meet new people. With most at home and for the safety of jammers this year is all ONLINE and we’re hosting on the COGG Discord server: This event is the best way to experience game development at its most heightened-hardcore state among friends to support and guide you through the whole process.

β€’ Weekend Overview
– Weekend Hackathon
– Curated Discord support and team check-ins from staff
– Guidance from Game Developer veterans

β€’ With no costs in food and venue required, this year is 100% FREE!

β€’ What we’ll do
The GGJ brings together talented individuals from within our local can extended communities. It is a unique opportunity for people to push their skills and challenge their way of working under a crunched time-frame. Participants work concurrently with developers around the globe; we rally around a central theme, and then have 48 hours to create a game. It’s our hope that we will see some very experimental yet realized prototypes that you can continue to work on after the jam. Many games developed in previous Game Jams have become fully realized games. The GGJ is an open source event in both hardware & software agnostic and all projects are protected under a Creative Commons license. We encourage people to try out new ideas and push themselves, within reason. We also strongly encourage participants to remember to eat and sleep (even while at home), to stay at their best!

β€’ What to have at home
Computers, Stable Internet, Creativity
