The Global Game Jam hopes to bring together talented and creative individuals from within the community. It is a unique opportunity for people to push their skills and challenge their way of working. Participants work concurrently with game developers around the globe; we rally around a central theme, and then have 48 hours to create a game.

Here is the link to the site on Global Game Jam's official page: South Bend

Seating is limited, register early.

* Is there an age requirement or limit?

The Global Game Jam is open to anyone young, old, or in between! The only restriction is that we ask for a parent to accompany anyone under the age of 18.

* Is it just about video games?

No. You can create whatever type of game you would like; video game, card game, dice game, etc.

* Will I have the skills to contribute?

Yes. If you are interested in games, you can contribute. The weekend is to have fun, make a game, and perhaps learn some new skills.

* Do I need to bring a computer?

If you want to make a video game, it helps to have a computer. However, last year we had people contribute art to the games by drawing them by hand. The drawings were then scanned and incorporated into the game by somebody with a computer. So, the only limit to how you might contribute is your imagination.

* What platform will be used for video games?

That's entirely up to you as a participant! You can use anything from more sophisticated languages targeting Windows or Mac, or you might opt to use some of the simpler environments like Scratch or Kodu.

* Where should I park?

Surface parking is free and available right outside the building.

* What if I get hungry?

We will be providing beverages and some food. There are also several restaurants and coffee shops located closely in the surrounding downtown area.

* What is the refund policy?

All purchases are refundable up to 30 days ahead of the event.
