The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is the world’s largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations. In January 2015, we had over 600 locations in 93 countries create 6866 games in one weekend! Last year, Bulgaria took part of this global initiative for the third time.
BBC News calls the event ‘a global phenomenon’.
In a nutshell, the jam is a 48-hour marathon, uniting game enthusiasts around the idea of collaboration.
What happens during Sofia Game Jam?
Sofia Game Jam is open to anyone interested in video games – professional, students or just people with talent! The idea behind the event is to get together a mix of people with different backgrounds, interests and skills, and motivate them to work together on an idea – to plan and execute the concept in 48 hours. Just for the sake of the challenge!
Game Jam is a fun playground where developers can experiment with technologies and also challenge their team-working skills. Game Jam can be challenging and hard work but most of all – great fun. Making games with other people is even more exhilarating!
