Global Game Jam Austin
January 27, 2021 to January 31, 2021
About the Event:
Global Game Jam Austin is the local site for GGJ participants in Austin, TX. This year the jam will take place fully online.
The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world's largest game creation event taking place around the globe, typically at physical locations. A "game jam" is essentially a hackathon focused on game development. It is the growth of an idea that in today’s heavily connected world, gamers could come together, be creative, share experiences and express themselves in a multitude of ways using video games – it is very universal. The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48 hour development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.
