Event description
Global Game Jam at Farset Labs is back in our new building to kick-off 2020!

About this Event

Global Game Jam at Farset Labs is back again in 2020, with support from Northern Ireland Screen. The Game Jam will run from Friday 31st to Sunday 2nd - come meet some great people and develop a game idea in a weekend. With a party atmosphere from Friday night, there will be plenty of people there to team up with, create something interesting and (most importantly) to have fun!

Note: you can choose between a free t-shirt or tote bag until midnight on 17th January - the link to the form will be on your booking confirmation page and email.

WHAT IS GLOBAL GAME JAM?

A global simultaneous hackathon making games of all sorts, from full-scale console productions to mobile, web-based and embedded games, as well as table-top board- and card-games. Some will be just for fun, others for charitable causes like Games For Change, and none of them exist before this weekend!

Farset Labs has been running Northern Ireland’s only public GGJ site since 2013, this year joining over 100 other countries taking part. We will be live streaming video from sites all over the world during the weekend, and there will also be an opportunity to see and play other teams’ games at the end of the event. The details of the venue are also available on our Global Game Jam listing.

HOW DO I ENTER?

We ask that you reserve your seat at Farset Labs here on Eventbrite, so that we can get accurate numbers for our food orders (included in your sign-up).

You can then complete your Global Game Jam registration on or before Friday 31st January.

Global Game Jam is always very popular; so to avoid disappointment, book early!

Tickets this year are £5.99 each - buying a ticket will reserve your seat for the weekend as well as helping us to provide you with catered meals for the full weekend and unique GGJ Belfast goodies!

The theme is announced on-site at 5pm on Friday 31st January so we recommend everyone be in Farset before that time, or send word if you will be arriving later on. We look forward to seeing you all, as it will be a great weekend!

WHAT DO I NEED?

There is no required skill level or barrier for entry; we welcome programmers, artists, musicians and anyone else who might be interested in being involved! Bring yourself and your equipment – the organisers recommend that participants wait until the beginning of the event to form teams. We have found that this worked well in the past and gives interesting results.

Please note: You must be over 18 on the 31st of January to participate.

More information will be provided in the run-up, but please feel free to contact events@farsetlabs.org.uk or ask us questions via Facebook or Twitter with the #farsetggj20 hashtag.

Brought to you to with support from Northern Ireland Screen.
