Event description

Description

Come join us for a weekend of teamwork, collaboration, creativity, friendship, and exploration! From January 25 to 27, 2018, we'll take over VFS and make games for 48 hours!

Due to a rule change for Global Game Jam, attendants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an attendee older than 18 for the entire duration of the jam. Please take this into account when purchasing tickets.

Wait, what's Global Game Jam?

The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event taking place around the world at physical locations. This is the registration page for the Vancouver, BC, Canada jam.

The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity. The jam is known for helping foster new friendships, increase confidence and opportunities within the community. The jam is always an intellectual challenge. People are invited to explore new technology tools, try new roles in development, and test their skills. Jammers work in teams to design, develop, test and make a new game in the time span of 48 hours.

What do I get with my jammer ticket?

With your jammer ticket, you get space to jam, and a special GGJ Vancouver 2019 t-shirt. We'll provide meals throughout the event, specifics to be determined, but for sure a pizza party on Sunday. We'll also provide copious amounts of coffee and tea to fuel the jamming.

What's new this year?

We have a new venue sponsor, Vancouver Film School, at downtown Vancouver for easy transiting and better food convenience. We are also leveling up the quality of games by working with Tree of Audio and Pixel Route to provide pairs of sound designers and artists to join forces with teams throughout the jam.
