"The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development."
Global Game Jam gives us an opportunity to develop games amongst friends and new acquaintances in 48 hours with the Portland Indie Game Squad!

We will begin on Friday evening at the University of Portland with a keynote, icebreakers, idea generating activities, and team forming (approx. 1-2 hours). After jammers are satisfied with their ideas and teams, they will work on their games until Sunday evening at around 8pm.
