Can you make a game in a weekend?
The Global Game Jam is a 48-hour event where artists, musicians and programmers create a video game over just one weekend. Held in over 120 locations worldwide, itís creative, cooperative, chaotic and huge fun.

New Zealand gamers will be the first to kickoff, when the theme for the games is unveiled at 5pm on Friday 28 January 2011 and the teams work flat out until Sunday night.

Global Game Jam is open to anyone interested in making games including sound artists, musicians, programmers, artists (2D and 3D), designers, animators and board gamers. Some experience is preferable, but a passion for games is the key thing.

Local gamers will gather at the Media Design School in Auckland, the University of Waikato and the University of Otago. The best games will be featured on the coverdisk of NZ PC World magazine, as well as fame and kudos online.
