Global Game Jam @ The Games Academy, Falmouth University

Friday February 3 @ 5:30 pm - Sunday February 5 @ 6:00 pm

Global Game Jam 2023

If you would like to join us for the game jam, please book a free ticket:

The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world’s largest game creation event taking place around the globe. A “game jam” is essentially 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.
