Brisbane Global Game Jam 2018

January 26 - January 29

Global Game Jam is the worlds largest game jam!

The goal of Global Game Jam is to bring people together to create video games or non-digital games, like a board or card games. Participants, also known as jammers, work together to rapidly prototype game designs and hopefully create inspiring new ideas that contribute to the growth of the games industry. All Global Game Jam sites share a common theme and jam diversifiers – sub-themes that provide additional, but optional, structure to jammers. We ask participants to create an original game inspired by the jam’s theme within a prescribed time no larger than 48 hours. The brief time span is meant to help encourage creative thinking to result in small, but innovative, experimental games. Please note: Global Game Jam is not a competition.
At Global Game Jam Brisbane (BGGJ) we will be part of the international game making the event to making games and have fun.

Global Game Jam is your chance to:

– Get into Game Development

– Make that game you have been thinking about

– Network. Meeting some awesome new people in game development.

– Get experience making a game and working with game developers.

– Have a great time.

BGGJ will have a special support and focus for Virtual reality and Augmented Reality, with VR hardware available. However, all types of games are welcome.

We will be connected to the international community with video link/live stream.
