About this Event

This year marks the 5th annual Global Game Jam event at Montserrat!

The GGJ brings the community together to work together for a weekend to make games. It is a unique opportunity for people to create, collaborate and practice their game making skills, and invites everyone of any skill level to take part.

Participants work concurrently around the globe; we rally around a central theme, and then have 48 hours to create a game. It's our hope that we will see some very experimental prototypes that you can continue to work on after the jam. Many games developed in previous Game Jams have become fully realized games.

The GGJ is open source, hardware and software agnostic, and all projects are released under a Creative Commons license. We encourage people to try out new ideas and push themselves, within reason. We also strongly encourage participants to be aware of their mental and physical wellness during the event (to eat and sleep!), so they can stay at their creative best!
