The Event:

The goal of a game jam is to come together and make a game (be it a videogame, board game, card game…) Jammers quickly come up with new ideas, and make quick sketches of how they might work to prototype and playtest. Often jammers have a theme or central idea to work with. The brief time span will encourage creative thinking and hopefully innovative experimental games.

Global Game Jame NEXT hopes to reach out to a younger audience, providing the space to be creative and explore the limits of their current knowledge! The GGJ NEXT  will happen all over the globe based around a central theme.

The event will held on the Carleton campus on July 21st beginning at 9am and continuing until 2pm. Volunteers will be present to help the Jammers as much as required as well as serving lunch to all attendees.
