For the fourth year in a row, the University of Utah’s Entertainment Arts and Engineering lab will take part in the Global Game Jam (GGJ). The GGJ is an annual event where universities, libraries, game development studios and labs lock the doors for a weekend of ‘jamming’ on some games. Just like rock bands that hold jam sessions to crank out new tunes, jammers around the world will crank out a fully playable videogame in just 48 hours.
The Global Game Jam is an amazing chance for game developers in Salt Lake City to connect to others around the world. Use #EAEGGJ2020 on all social media platforms and follow EAE's twitter for live updates around the Jam!
The University of Utah’s EAE site will host 60 undergraduates, graduate students and alumni who will form 8 teams to make 8 games. To see more details on University's Game Jam click here!
Although EAE’s site is closed to public participation, folks that are interested in seeing what happens at a Jam can watch from the comfort of their own homes via twitch! We will be live streaming the entire event from kick off to close.
If you are a student interested in participating, but the Jam has reached Max Capacity, contact Gabe Olson on Discord to be placed on the waiting list.
