The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is the world’s largest game jam event taking place around the world at physical locations. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development. It is the growth of an idea that in today’s heavily connected world, we could come together, be creative, share experiences and express ourselves 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.
Q: When is the Global Game Jam held?
A: 31st January to 02 February 2020

A: This site has on-site security. All participants must be 18 years or older or accompanied by a participating parent or guardian.
Q: Registration is required!
A: You must register at official Global Game Jam site.https://globalgamejam.org/2020/jam-sites/pga-global-game-jam-2020
Q: What to bring?
A: Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop, especially if they already have licenses of any software they want to use such as Unity.
Q: I’ve never made a game before!
A: Great! Maybe you don’t know how to program but can provide assets (art, sound, etc…) or you are an experienced game player and want to take a stab at testing or design. We want you here!
We’ll also be making tabletop games (board, card, live action, etc…) so don’t let being able to program keep you from participating!
Q: What kind of skills should I have to participate?
A: It depends! Do you want to make a digital game or a non-digital one? It’s great to have knowledge of programming and game design, in visual art and sound and music, and in writing. Rather than think that way, however, try this: “What kind of skills do you want to practice the game jam?”. This is a great environment to try new things!
Note: Only 18+ can attend this event
For snacks and tea: 500 PKR (Will be collected on-spot)
