The Global Game Jam returns to the NYU Game Center once again in 2013!  Join us for one of the most exciting weekends of the year with 48 hours of game creation with developers from around NYC, our MFA students, and you!  Beginning on Friday evening on January 25th and running until Sunday evening, you’ll have a chance to take part in the entire cycle of designing on game on fast forward, from team formation, concepting, execution, and even feedback, during our awards on Sunday night.  Registration spots are limited, so be sure to indicate that the Game Center will be your jam site by registering and updating your profile on the GGJ site, here.  No prior experience is required, and all are welcome to this free event.


And under the right circumstances, the constraints of the Global Game Jam might just lead to your  next big project!  Congratulations to Itay Keren for earning backing from Indie Fund for his game Mushroom 11! The game was initially designed at our 2012 Global Game Jam site. It took home the award our Game Jam award Best Game Design, and Itay has since been working to continue developing and polishing his fascinating fungal based game.

If you are interesting in following Keren’s footsteps and making your own innovative and award winning game, register today to be a part of our 2013 Global Game Jam site!
