Global Game Jam 2020 - Mini FAQ

Global Game Jam 2020 - Mini FAQ

In less than 24 hours we're back for our second year in Cardiff hosting Global Game Jam 2020!! There's a few things to note:

  • We have a few slots available for online tickets left. We will be closing ticket sales tomorrow morning so any remaining will be available on the door, so don't panic!
  • The keynote and theme will be shown at 5pm sharp (its just over 20 mins)
  • As usual, there's a wide selection of diversifiers to help inspire and challenge you
  • We would encourage everyone to form teams with people they don't know (it's more fun, trust us) but we understand this can be intimidating for many, so please don't hesitate to ask for help and introductions
  • We can't provide any hardware to use unfortunately, but we have 5 monitors that are available on a first come first serve basis, and of course plenty of power.
  • There will be pizza provided on Friday night and some other snacks on Saturday. Please let us know of any dietary requirements in advance! We do also have on-site food this year and a larger bar than ever before!
  • Final submissions are on Sunday at around 3pm, and we require that all teams are registered on the Global Game Jam site once it kicks off.
  • There will be photos and filming (plus a live stream) all weekend. If you don't want to be on stream or camera let us know.
  • We also would encourage every participating to join the Games Wales Discord and the #globalgamejam-thearcadevaults channel to keep in touch with your fellow jammers!
  • Lastly, have FUN!
