Jam Site Description: 

Google Cloud and Playcrafting are partnering to bring you an amazing Global Game Jam experience!

Come join us at the Google Launchpad space at 301 Howard St - we’ll have presentations and people throughout the event from Google Cloud, Firebase, Daydream, Youtube, Google Play and more (more updates to the schedule coming)! As well as prizes and giveaways galore.

The party starts at 4pm, so make sure to get here in time to meet everyone and catch all the content that will be happening!

We are limited for space, so make sure to register early to ensure you have a spot!

We look forward to seeing everyone who is interested in making games, regardless of experience, and having a great time.

Make sure to bring laptops, power cables, headphones and all the tools you might need to make games - we’ll provide the power, internet and plenty of food.  The Launchpad space will be available for the full jam, so make sure to bring a sleeping bag if you want to stay the night.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
