Global Game Jam

The Art Institute of Portland - Open Space
1122 NW Davis St
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)

We have room for up to 70 jammers; additional participants may jam remotely.



The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event. GGJ brings together thousands of game enthusiasts participating through many local jams around the world. GGJ is a project of the International Game Developers Association (IGDA).

We will begin on Friday evening at the Art Institute of Portland with a keynote, icebreakers, idea generating activities, and team selection (approx. 2 hours). After jammers are satisfied with their ideas and teams, they will work on their games until we approach our deadline on Sunday afternoon. They will begin to upload their "completed" games by the Global Game Jam deadline. Exact times will be available in our schedules during the jam.
