Global Game Jam

"The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations.  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." This year, we are excited to have two CT locations participating in the GGJ; Quinnipiac University and The Ferguson Library. Learn more about each of the sites below and learn more about the GGJ by visiting the official Global Game Jam site.
