The Global Game Jam is back at CGL!

From January 20-22 2017 we will be hosting the 48h game development workshop again.

The Global Game Jam  is the world’s largest game jam event which takes place in various locations around the world. The event traditionally adresses both professional developers and beginners. Participants are invited to explore new technology tools, try on new roles in development and test their skills, to design, develop, create, and make a new game in just 48 hours. With 120 participants on site and 25 games developed, the 2016 GGJ was the greatest game jam event in CGL´s 7-year history as a host in Cologne. Let’s make 2017 even better!

On Friday afternoon, January 20, the secret theme will be announced. All sites worldwide are then challenged to make games based on that same theme, with games to be completed by Sunday afternoon. Last year, there were over 600 locations in 93 countries and they created 6866 games in one weekend! Count the seconds here.
