UW-Green Bay: Announces Global Game Jam is back, Jan. 21-23 at Urban Hub | WisPolitics.com
Green Bay, Wis.—After a two-year hiatus, Green Bay will once again host a site for the Global Game Jam (GGJ) over the weekend. Since 2008, this annual, international event challenges new and experienced developers to create original games in 48 hours. Digital and non-digital games will be designed to follow a loose theme that will be revealed by Global Game Jam headquarters at 5 pm on the event’s opening night. The theme for last year’s virtual event, for example, was “Lost and Found.” Organizing the Green Bay site is UW-Green Bay lecturer Ben Geisler who has overseen three previous GGJ sites in Green Bay. A veteran game developer himself, Geisler brings industrial experience to the Game Jam.
