Global Game Jam Stockholm is part of the worlds biggest game making event, the Global Game Jam. The 2015 GGJ takes place from Friday to Sunday on January 23-25th.
What is GGJ?
Global Game Jam is a globally coordinated game hackathon. The global event gathers over 20 000 game enthusiasts from countries all over the world. During this one weekend, game designers, professionals and amateurs alike come together to do what they all love best: make games. The aim is to complete new games from scratch in just 48 hours.
Last year alone, GGJ gathered 23 400+ participants from 70+ different countries. Together, they created over 4200 new games. Here’s an overview, with theme presentation.
