Global Game Jam 2012: A 48 Hour Game-Making Marathon at R&D
The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is the world’s largest game jam event occurring annually in late January. GGJ brings together thousands of game enthusiasts participating through many local jams around the world. GGJ is a project of the International Game Developers Association (IGDA).
Developing games is not an activity limited to coders or 3D jockeys (although, they are quite essential). 2D artists, graphic and interface designers, sound engineers, etc are not only welcome, but in huge demand for a successful jam. If you’re one of these people, we’d love to have you participate! And since game development is not limited to digital games, anyone with an interest can come in to design a board game, card game, or even new sport.
