The biggest Global Game Jam site in the United States returns!

Join Playcrafting and Microsoft for a weekend of game-making plus free talks and workshops, refreshments and prizes! Stay tuned to this page as we confirm speakers, workshops and prizes in the coming weeks. Our 2018 site was the biggest in the United States and the 2nd largest in the world with over 500 jammers and 1200 attendees. Be a part of the magic in 2019, live all weekend from Times Square!

What started in 2016 grew to an epic scale by 2018 with our massive site in partnership with Microsoft. The result? Over 1,200 attendees and 500 official jammers - student and professional, young and old, newbie and veteran - joined us for a full weekend making over 80 games with free onsite workshops, refreshments and an epic expo and demo showcase with judges and prizes that had folks cheering all Sunday long.
