Can you make a game in 48 Hours? The Global Game Jam is a 48-hour event where artists, musicians, video game developers and programmers create a video game over just one weekend. Held in over 120 locations worldwide, including Auckland, Hamilton and Dunedin, it’s creative, cooperative, chaotic and huge fun.

New Zealand gamers are the first to kickoff, when the theme for the games is unveiled at 5pm on Friday 28 January and the teams work flat out until Sunday night.

Global Game Jam is open to anyone interested in making games including artists (2D and 3D), designers, animators, programmers, sound artists, musicians and board gamers.

Local gamers will gather at the Media Design School in Auckland, the University of Waikato and the University of Otago.
