Global Game Jam Honolulu
January 31, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm HST
The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world’s largest game jam event (game creation) 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.
This is not a 24 hr jam site. In past years we have noticed the teams that rested were more productive, so we ended 24 hour site availability. Please plan accordingly.
On-site parking on lot C – $7.00 for all-day parking Friday after 4:00 pm and on weekends, even if you leave and return.
See UH Manoa visitor parking website for more details.
Lunch and dinner will be provided on-site on Saturday.
There are vending machines nearby, some food within reasonable walking distance, and numerous food options within a short drive.
