It’s my pleasure to announce the 2016 GGJ will take place in Guildford as one of the locations in the UK! The location will be in the heart of Guildford’s Game Development in the Surrey Research Park. The Jam starts on Friday and will stretch until Sunday. This is a worldwide jam event, where we all get together in a big room and create a game over the course of a weekend, all based on a common theme. Previous themes have included “Deception”, “Extinction” and “The Sound of a Heartbeat”.
The Global Game Jam is being held at Rocketdesk; a brand new co-working space for game developers in Guildford. Rocketdesk is based in the Surrey Technology Centre, a prestigious and dynamic tech-focused environment with links to the University of Surrey. The working environment is modern and comfortable, but with the benefit of being located in one of Guildford’s green spaces. You will work in a beautiful low-density environment, with many open grass-spaces and two lakes on-site.
Registration is now open – please visit this website to secure your space in the game jam: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/guildford-global-game-jam-2016-tickets-20459285273
