GSU, KSU & SCAD Score Big as Global Game Jam Hosts

by Kristyn Back

Drop your remotes because The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is hitting Georgia State University, Kennesaw State University, and Savannah College of Art & Design campuses January 29th – 31st. The GGJ is the world’s largest game creation event taking place around the world – think hackathon meets game development. Register by January 15th to guarantee you’ll get grub, a t-shirt and other prize/swag.

The GGJ explores the process of development, be it through narrative exploration, iterative design, artistic expression, or programming. Join forces with individuals from diverse backgrounds to participate and contribute in this global spread of game creativity and development.

The goal of the event is for participants to create either a video game or a non-digital (board game or card game), within in a brief time period. Participants will rapidly create prototypes of their game designs against time constraints, bringing new ideas that can help grow the game industry.

“The GGJ is a perfect environment for both those interested in learning more about game development and veterans interested in testing their skills,” said Dr. Jay O’Toole, Georgia State managerial sciences assistant professor, CMII faculty affiliate and GGJ research chair. “I am always amazed at the creativity and innovation on display during this 48-hour event.”

Interested in attending The Global Game Jam? Register to attend at a location of your choosing (GSU, KSU, or SCAD) and get to grinding in this annual game battle royale. Each location will be challenged to design, develop, create, test and make a game in the span of 48 hours. Innovation, Collaboration, and Experimentation FTW!
