Global Game Jam goes virtual: Friday 29th January

Posted on: 20-01-2021

NI Game Dev Network and Farcet Labs have teamed up to host the first ever virtual Global Game Jam (GGJ) on Friday 29th January from 7pm.

Supported by Northern Ireland Screen, GGJ is the world’s largest game creation event to take place around the globe. The event is usually held at ‘physical’ locations, however this year the GGJ goes virtual for the first time.

The aim of the event is for aspiring game developers to come together, be creative, share experiences and express themselves in a multitude of ways using video games – it is very universal.

The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration, or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48-hour development cycle. GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.
