As Global Game Jam is a collaborative event more than a competition, there will not be prizes for this game jam.

Participants located in Finland who also register for any Finnish Game Jam site by Friday January 20th may also receive a swag package from the FGJ organizers. HypeHype Inc. is located in Finland and our Game Jam Site is also included in the Finnish Game Jam (FGJ). 

What is Global Game Jam?

The goal of Global Game Jam is to bring people together to create video games or non-digital games, like board or card games. Participants, also known as jammers, work together to rapidly prototype game designs and hopefully create inspiring new ideas that contribute to the growth of the games industry. 

All Global Game Jam sites share a common theme and jam diversifiers - sub-themes that provide additional, but optional, structure to jammers. We ask participants to create an original game inspired by the jam’s theme within 48 hours. The brief time span is meant to help encourage creative thinking to result in small, but innovative and experimental games. 

Please note: Global Game Jam is not a competition.
