Global Game Jam Antwerp
Global Game Jam is a weekend where you team up with a bunch of other people to create a game in 48 hours. The only restriction provided is a secret theme that will be announced at the start of the event. At more than 500 locations world wide, other people will be working around that very same theme as YOU. This time will be the 11th edition of Global Game Jam Antwerp.
For who is this event?
Global Game Jam Antwerp welcomes all designers, 2D/3D artists, writers, programmers, musicians, makers, students, hackers, hobbyists... and anyone else motivated to spend the weekend creating a digital or physical game.
Global Game Jam Antwerp will take place in Het Bos, Antwerp. There will be a separate sleeping room where you can drop your mattras.
What's the schedule?
On Friday 25 January afternoon, Global Game Jam starts off introduction rounds and announce the super secret theme. After that there will be some brainstorm sessions going on, followed by dinner. After your bellies are filled, everyone will get the chance to pitch their game ideas to the group. Based on this you will form nice, diverse teams. Then it's time to start making your games. They should be done by sunday afternoon.

"But I have never made a game before"
