January 25 – 27, 2019

We are proud to offer the chance to participate in Global Game Jam again for the upcoming year!

SIGN UP for GGJ 2019!

What’s new this year?

This year the Global Game Jam Vancouver is organized as a joint effort by BUS Game Developers Association, Vancouver Game Jam Society, Pixel Route, and Tree of Audio. Together we hope to continue the Global Game Jam Vancouver for years to come!

Wait, what’s Global Game Jam?

The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world’s largest game jam event taking place around the world at physical locations. This is the registration page for the Vancouver, BC, Canada jam.

The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity. The jam is known for helping foster new friendships, increase confidence and opportunities within the community. The jam is always an intellectual challenge. People are invited to explore new technology tools, try new roles in development, and test their skills. Jammers work in teams to design, develop, test and make a new game in the time span of 48 hours.

What do I get with my jammer ticket?

With your jammer ticket, you get space to jam, and a special GGJ 2019 t-shirt. We will definintely also have a pizza party on Sunday evening, but other meals are TBA at this point. We also provide copious amounts of coffee during the entire 48 hours.

I’m too busy to jam, can I still participate?

As always, we are looking for volunteers in many capacities. Please refer to our volunteer page to sign up as a volunteer.
