Jam Site Description: 


What is Global Game Jam 2016?

The GGJ is the world's largest game jam event taking place around the world at physical locations. It’s a hackathon focused on game development. It’s a space where talented individuals, get together to work in a fun and intense atmosphere of creativity and experimentation throughout a 48 hour period. The Game Jam is more like an “idea space” rather than competition. It stimulates collaboration and encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.
In the past 3 years our site was ranked globally as the site with “the highest number of participants”. In last years’ Global Game Jam, there were more than 890 participants from all over Egypt onsite. Throughout the weekend around 90 games have been developed and uploaded. Winners got prizes varying from 1000 dollars from Instinct games to Microsoft Lumia devices from Microsoft. As well as, one year free membership from Indie Game Magazine and Microsoft Dreamspark, for all the participating Jammers
