Global Game Jam Stockholm is part of the worlds biggest game making event, the Global Game Jam.
Global Game Jam is a globally coordinated game hackathon. The global event gathers over 16 000 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 over 16 000 participants from 62 different countries. Together, they created 3248 new games.
This year, GGJSthlm will host around 50 jammers. The 2015 GGJSthlm jam site will be at Tekniska Museet, where jamming will continue uninterrupted throughout the weekend. GGJSthlm is organized on a voluntary basis. Jammers pay a small fee, used to further the event.
The jam site will be open to the general public during museum opening hours, lending an insight into a process that is rarely seen. Visit the museum for a preview of the games as they are being made, test play demo versions and meet with the jammers!
This is the official signup for the event, where you get your ticket. Please also create a user on the Global Game Jam site, so that other jammers can find you!
