Jam Site Description: 

It's that time of the year again!

Global Game Jam is right around the corner, and IGDA Cincinnati is hosting everything VIRTUALY! 

IGDA Cincinnati will be hosting everything via our DISCORD to put on GGJ yet again. We hope to see you all join and participate in the jam even if it is staying at home. 

If this is your first game jam, here are the deets: During the weekend, you will have 48 hours to create a game based on a theme. No one will know the theme until the day of the event to keep the ideas fresh, thunked up day-of. At the end of the weekend, the goal is to have made a game, but that's just icing on the cake. We're here to learn, network with local devs, and join in the grand worldwide celebration of the game making community, with 600 other locations all over the world.

No specific skills are required to participate in the event. We'll pop you on a team and make that magic happen.

Friday: We will all meet up at 6pm on Discord in the game jam room, allowing a little time for people to show up. We will begin with a brief presentation of our sponsors and information IGDA and what to expect from the event. 

**Then we'll unveil the theme at 6PM**. 

Saturday: The real work begins. 

Sunday: We'll wrap up our projects and put them on display at 5pm.

Some side notes to keep in mind during the weekend:

There will be NO cover charge to attend--we want everyone to feel welcome and able to join.
You must be over the age of 18 to participate.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us. Keep your eyes on this channel for updates on sponsors, maps, and announcements over the next couple of weeks.
