Global Game Jam Antwerp

25-27 January 2019

Make a game in 48 hours

Participate

Global Game Jam is a weekend where you team up with a bunch of other people to create a game in 48 hours. The only restriction provided is a secret theme that will be announced at the start of the event. At more than 500 locations world wide, other people will be working around that very same theme as YOU.

We welcome all designers, 2D/3D artists, writers, programmers, musicians, makers, students, hackers, hobbyists... and anyone else motivated to spend the weekend creating a digital or physical game.

This time will be the 10th edition of Global Game Jam Antwerp

What's the schedule?

On Friday 25 January afternoon, we start off introduction rounds and announce the super secret theme. After that we will have some brainstorm sessions going on, followed by dinner. After our bellies are filled, everyone will get the chance to pitch their game ideas to the group. Based on this we'll form nice, diverse teams. Then it's time to start making your games. They should be done by sunday afternoon.

How much does it cost?

Previous years we had only 1 ticket type. But this year we are introducing volunteer tickets to make this collaborative event even more collaborative!

>> Buy your tickets now <<

What do I do as a volunteer?

As a volunteer, you will have to choose out of 4 shifts when buying your ticket.

Where shall we sleep and such?

We will provide a nice sleeping room where you can lay down your sleeping bag and mattress. About showering: we strongly advice you to shower before coming to the event, since we don't have showers on site.

What do we have to bring

"But I have never made a game before"

Don't worry, that's okay. For everything is a first time, and Global Game Jam is a perfect moment to make your first game, and learn from eachother.

"In fact, I have made my first game during Global Game Jam Antwerp 2015 too. And I learned so much during that weekend."
