What is the Global Game Jam? 

What is Global Game Jam?

"Jam" is a reference to musical jam sessions. Similarly, the goal with a "game jam" is to come together and make a video game, or a non-digital (analog) game like a board game or card game. Participants rapidly prototype game designs and inject new ideas to help inspire and grow the global game industry. We share a common theme and constraints. We ask participants to create a game from beginning to end in a prescribed time. The brief time span is meant to help encourage creative thinking which results in small but innovative and experimental games, some of which have been developed beyond the GGJ into a commercial success.

The GGJ mission is to empower individuals worldwide to learn, experiment, and create together through the medium of games. The organization oversees various efforts both globally and locally to encourage communities to join together to make games. The GGJ provides unique opportunities for people to create, collaborate and practice their game creation skills, and invites everyone of any skill level to take part.

JOIN THE COEXIST GAMING GLOBAL GAME JAM SITE:

Development is as creative as it is technical and the creative aspects of development are more creative than acknowledged. Our mission is to highlight the intricacies of how video games are developed and expand the realm of opportunity and who can be a part of the process in order to build better games. Our goal is to empower game devs by encouraging collaborative development and enable them to build better games in an innovative co-working game house.
