Game Jams are temporary events (often 48 hours) where game developers come together to create amazing (prototypes of) games. There is often a theme given out by the organizer, but apart from that the participants are free to use any software, engine, technology, platform,… they want.
The biggest regular game jam is the Global Game Jam which takes place at the end of january each year.
To this day I participated in several game jams and it was great fun each time. Plus you meet friendly people and get nice, little games which you can show to your friends and on your homepage. Which is what I’ll do on this site 🙂
