Submitting games

All games need to be uploaded to the GGJ server before the jam is complete. All content needs to be on the server by 5 PM local time Sunday. Sharing and showing your work is a core GGJ philosophy, so we ask that not only game executables be uploaded, but also source code, assets, make-files, and anything else needed to compile your game.

Equipment

Jammers are encouraged to bring their own devices. If you are unable to bring your own device, contact us and we’ll try to help.

Schedule

Each Global Game Jam 2020 location starts at 5 PM local time on Friday the 31st. It ends at 5 PM local time on Sunday afternoon. Most jams end on Sunday with presentations or play sessions where teams take turns showing the games they created. Actual development time for jammers is generally less than 48 hours but the whole GGJ2020 experience spans the entire time.

Global Game Jam

The Global Game Jam® (GGJ®) is the world’s largest game creation event taking place in physical locations across the globe. Think of it as a 48 hour hackathon focused on game development around a theme.

GGJ’s mission is to stimulate innovation, experimentation, and collaboration in games. The annual event begins on a Friday afternoon in January and kicks off with video keynotes and advice from leaders in the game development industry. The jam formally begins after an announcement of the year’s theme, kept secret until the last second, and not revealed publicly until 5pm at our last time zone to start: Hawaii!

The GGJ encourages collaboration and is not a competition. Anyone can apply to host a jam site as long as they have a dedicated jam organiser who agrees to follow a few GGJ rules, and a venue with internet access.

The jam, which is fully run by volunteers with the exception of two paid GGJ staff members (the Executive Director and Executive Producer), is known for fostering friendships while increasing confidence and opportunities within participating communities. Each GGJ event poses an intellectual challenge where people are invited to try new technology and tools while exploring new roles and skills.


Meet you at the jam!
