You are all invited to Game Jam event in EUAS, as Global Game Jam official participants under Game Jam Tallinn in EUAS on 25 – 27 of January 2019.

The Global Game Jam brings the community together for a weekend to create games. The goal is to come together and create a game in 48 hours. All locations all over the world share the same theme and constraints for the jam.


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. It is the growth of an idea that in today’s heavily connected world, we could come together, be creative, share experiences and express ourselves in a multitude of ways using video games – it is very universal. The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48 hour development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.

The structure of a jam is usually that everyone gathers on Friday late afternoon, watches a short video keynote with advice from leading game developers, and then a secret theme is announced. All sites worldwide are then challenged to make games based on that same theme, with games to be completed by Sunday afternoon.

Join us for a weekend of making, community, learning, inspiration and fun. Everyone is welcome to join in whatever your skill set or level. There is something for everyone at GGJ.

Previous experience is not necessary. Participants rapidly prototype game designs and hopefully inject new ideas to help grow the game industry. Designers, developers, artists, musicians, knitters, gardeners, architects, everyone and anyone is welcome to try their hand at making a game during the GGJ. You can learn many new skills and support your team by contributing ideas, playtesting and giving moral support.

You can as well work on a non-digital game, which won’t require programming skills! The brief time span is meant to help encourage creative thinking to result in small but innovative and experimental games.

The GGJ is open source, hardware and software agnostic and all projects are released under a Creative Commons license.
