Australia's Global Game Jam is back online for 2022 and smashes state borders for a wonderful collaborative event.
The 2022 edition will be a cross-country collaboration to run from 5pm on Friday 28 January until 5pm on Sunday 30 January.
What is GGJ?
Aussie Jam is part of Global Game Jam® (GGJ): the world's largest game creation event taking place around the globe over the same few days.
A "game jam" is essentially a hackathon focused on game development. It is the growth of an idea that in today's heavily connected world, we could come together, be creative, share experiences and express ourselves in a multitude of ways using games making as a conversation space.
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 online 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.
