Melbourne Global Game Jam 2023

Melbourne Global Game Jam is back and in-person for a fantastic weekend event at JMC Academy! Join over 200 game developers locally and thousands globally for 48 hours of collaborative game development, from the 3rd - 5th of February.

Global Game JamĀ® is the world's largest game creation event taking place around the world at physical locations. GGJ stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression.

It's universal, it's a lot of fun, and everyone over 18 is welcome - all you need is a desire to spend a weekend making games with others. Games can be digital or analogue, they can be prototypes for something amazing down the track, they can be fun ideas that get explored and never finished. GGJ is all about having a great creative experience and meeting other game making enthusiasts.

Melbourne Global Game Jam will kick off on Friday afternoon of Feb 3rd 2023 and run throughout the weekend until Sunday.

If you need to attend online instead of in-person due to health reasons, please let the organisers know immediately after you register so we can make appropriate arrangements.
