Falmouth University, Games Academy are hosting a Global Game Jam 2023 event.

Falmouth University – Penryn Campus Falmouth University Treliever Road Penryn TR10 9FE

The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world’s largest game creation event taking place around the globe. A “game jam” is essentially 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.

Venue: Falmouth University Games Academy, Unit 31 Parkengue, Kernick Industrial Estate, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9EP.

Dates: 03-05 February 2023, and times:

Friday 03 Feb: 5:30pm to 10pm (launch announcement at 6pm)

For externals (non-Falmouth staff or students): guest log-ins would be available to use studio equipment, but if you are bringing your own laptop/kit, please ensure that it has been PAT tested (we can do this on-site if necessary).

You don’t need to be in an existing team to take part, we can match people at the start, based on similar ideas.

Attendees must be 18 years or older.
