Albany Global Game Jam 2018

Hosted by Albany International Game Developers Association (Albany IGDA), we’ll be joining the largest game jam in the world, the Global Game Jam!

No experience in making games necessary! This is just a fun challenge for all of us, and often serves as an educational moment to learn how to work with deadlines. We will be going through game idea brainstorming and team building exercises to help you jump start your way to making games!

Join in as you make a game in 48 hours with a team! Meet up with other rapid game developers! Eat a lot of junk food! And most important of all, have fun!

With the Global Game Jam 2016 over, we created a special podcast looking back on our experiences making a game in 48-hours. This discussion was a chance for all the GGJ2016 participants to talk about what we’ve learned from our experiences at this year’s jam, and share ideas for what we can improve on in a future jam. Check out this fun reflection!
