Event description
This annual event encourages participants to challenge themselves and push their creativity and learning to the limit.

About this Event

The American University Game Lab is proud to host a local site for the Global Game Jam 2020 in Washington, DC. The annual event encourages participants to challenge themselves and push their creativity and learning to the limit. Teams will be tasked with designing and creating digital and non-digital games over the course of one weekend.

Participants, ranging from amateurs to industry professionals, gather at each site location to create, collaborate and present innovative new games to the global community.

WHY JAM AT AU?

Make games with local partners and emerging young developers! This event will bring professionals and students together to create games and playful experiences (board games and physical designs are welcome too). Game Jam teams at the American University site will receive a tour of our world-class Game Lab. This is a great opportunity to connect with the DC game design community, meet new collaborators, and push what you can do in a weekend of game design.

Food is 95% of the cost of admission. To encourage team building and community, we are hosting three meals: opening dinner on Friday, Saturday dinner and a continental breakfast on Sunday. We also provide drinks and snacks. For lunch on Saturday there are coffee shops and a sandwich place within easy walking distance.

We've hosted more than 5 Global Game Jams in the past. Expect plenty of screens, couches, whiteboards... a great working space.

You must be 18 or over to participate. Also, you must register via this Eventbrite in advance in order to attend the event as we cannot accept payment at the door. We kindly request that you register by Wednesday, January 29 so that we can get an accurate headcount for the catering. Thanks!

Check in for the GGJ opens at 4:45 pm on Friday, January 31 in the Game Lab in the Don Myers Technology and Innovation Building, room 113, with the opening ceremony beginning at 5:30 pm.
