About this Event

Come join us for a weekend of teamwork, collaboration, creativity, friendship, and exploration! From January 31st to February 2nd, 2020, we'll take over BCIT's Great Hall and make games for 48 hours!

Due to a global rule for Global Game Jam, attendants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of the 18 for the entire duration of the jam. Please take this into account when purchasing tickets.

Wait, what is 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 the space to jam, a fancy laminated event pass, and a special GGJ Vancouver 2020 t-shirt. We also provide meals throughout the event, specifics to be determined, but definitely there will be a pizza party on Sunday. And of course, we'll have copious amounts of coffee and tea to fuel the jamming!

What's new this year?

We're moving to our second new venue in two years! This time we'll be in the Great Hall of BCIT's SE2 building. Continuing from last year, we're working with Tree of Audio and Pixel Route to level up the jamming experience by connecting teams of developers with sound designers and artists throughout the jam.
