LTGameJam 2010 - Info

Info

In a Game Jam, participants come together to make video games. Each participant works in a small team on a complete game project over the course of a limited time period, usually over a weekend. With such a small time frame, the games tend to be innovative and experimental.

The Global Game Jam is a game jam that takes place in the same 48 hours all over the world! The Global Game Jam will happen on January 29-31, 2010. All participants in the Global Game Jam will be constrained by the same rules and limitations, with each time zone having one distinct constraint.
