If you’ve never attended a game jam event, that’s okay! Participants include both professionals, amateurs, and game enthusiasts who want to challenge themselves to create something unique. Each person brings their own skills, experiences, and perspectives to the table, creating an environment for innovation and creativity. Here are some examples of previous Global Game Jam games.

Hope to see you there!
