The Computer Science Department at The University of Waikato in Hamilton is hosting a site for the 12th Global Game Jam - GGJ 2019. Come join us for 48 hours of video game development, pizza and caffeine.
In a Game Jam, participants come together to make video games around a theme announced at the start of the jam. Each participant works in a small team on a complete game project over the course of a limited time period, usually over a weekend. With such a small time frame, the games tend to be innovative and experimental.
The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is a 48 hour game jam that takes place nearly simultaneously all over the world during a 72 hour period (adjusted to suit local time zones)! The New Zealand involvement in the 2019 Global Game Jam will start at 5:00 PM Friday, January 25th and run for 48 hours, through to 5:00 PM Sunday, January 27th.
