Penn Game Studios/Penn Interactive is excited to host our first virtual Global Game Jam!

About this event

Overview of Global Game Jam

Global Game Jam is the largest game development event out there, and as the name suggests, it’s a global event held in nearly every country in the world. This year, PGS will participate by hosting a GGJ virtual site catered to local game developers in both the Philadelphia, PA & Greenfield, MA areas.

How it works

This is an event where attendees will be given a theme, then pitch game ideas based on that theme, then organize into teams of 3-5 people in order to create a unique game idea together over a period of 48 hours. At the end of the event, there’s a showcase of all games created (and some nice Penn/PGS swag prizes will be awarded as well).

I hope as many folks from Penn can join! This is a really FUN event, it’s free, and is open to all (regardless of experience or skillset). It’s also a great team building tool that gives us the opportunity to get to know new talent in the area.

We’ll be posting more information closer to the event, but for now please read the important information below.
