Global Game Jam January 2018

Reid Whelton/ December 2, 2017/ News

The Global Game Jam is happening on January 26-28th at the Edmonton Digital Arts College! This is a really fun event and a valuable learning experience—especially if you’re trying to add to your portfolio and grow your professional network. (It’s also free!) If you want to participate, you’re going to want to do two quick and easy things:

1) Make an account at https://globalgamejam.org/, click on “Participate in a Jam”, and then scroll to Edmonton’s jam site when it asks you to pick a site.

2) Register for the event on Eventbrite. The Global Game Jam is free to attend, but there is limited space, and once the announcement goes out, the spots will fill up fast. Make sure you reserve your spot as soon as you can, or else you may not be able to attend if the site is full. You will also not be able to participate remotely, as per Global Game Jam rules. You must be on site.

Here is the eventbrite link for registering: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/official-edmonton-global-game-jam-2018-tickets-39920830278

The Global Game Jam is a great opportunity, and we would love to see you all come out and join the game development scene here in Edmonton in what is easily one of the most exciting events of the year!
