The Games Institute, founded and headed by English’s Dr. Neil Randall, is hosting a Global Game Jam, an opportunity to MAKE games, explore new game ideas, and interact with fellow game-lovers in an exciting and relaxed environment. Learn something, teach something, make something, and play something!
You can build your own games from scratch along with helpful advice and guidance from our GI mentors. You can create your own game mechanic, gameful art, game characters and narrative, or try your hand at coding for your very own game prototype.
This Winter 2019 term, the GI is proud to be a Global Game Jam Site: https://globalgamejam.org/2019/jam-sites/university-waterloo.
The upcoming Jam will be Friday, January 25th at 4:30pm – Sunday January 27th at 6:00pm, at Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum Nano Centre (QNC) Room 1502, University of Waterloo.
