Global Game Jam 2016


Taking place at multiple locations around the world, Global Game Jam (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event, a massive hackathon focused on game development, compressed into 48 hour development cycle.  We are happy and proud to be hosting the upcoming Global Game Jam at City University London. 

In January 2015, over 500 locations in 78 countries created 5439 over the course of a weekend for Global Game Jam 2015. It will be City's second time of hosting the event. GGJ is aimed at people from all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to the global reach of game development and creativity.  

We have prepared the Northampton Suite which will be able to hold around 75 people with direct access from the main entrance (via stairs) and access to toilets (on the same floor). The room is a large open space with lots of natural light. We will be also providing wifi access (eduroam and a guest network) and a projector to showcase your games at the end, so all you need to bring is your own laptop or desired work station or gadgets.  The room will only be available until  21:00 each day due to security restrictions, but you will be able to come back the next day from 08:00 to resume your work. 

We are unable to provide catering, however the venue is situated opposite a Sainsburys and there are other fast-food shops in the vicinity of the university.  We hope you will have an awesome time and build cool games, so come along!  

Please feel free to contact us for any other inquiries or if you're willing to sponsor this exciting event.
