You will be asked for an Eventbrite ticket to enter the event. If you do not have one you will not be able to attend!

Glasgow Caledonian University has been part of Global Game Jam since 2009! This is the 14th time that GCU has hosted a venue for the GGJ® and we welcome everyone to come and participate and join in making games together.

We are going to run from 5:30 pm on Friday 3rd February to 5:30 pm on Sunday 5th February.

We're planning on having game tournaments and quizzes alongside our jam so please join in and play.

First time jammers and veterans are strongly encouraged to participate and bring their new ideas, skills and experiences into the mix! This event is not just for students, anyone can attend as long as you are 16 years or older (anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult unless they are a Glasgow Caledonian University student).



Is this an 'all night' event?

This is a 48-hour event and the venue will be open for the whole duration of this time. However, we encourage healthy working best practices. This means you should take care of yourself and act responsibly taking plenty of breaks and stop working when you are feeling tired to go home and sleep. This is to ensure you are well rested to do your best work and enjoy the rest of the experience.

We strongly discourage anyone doing the whole 48 hours without any sleep or rest and we reserve the right to ask participants to leave should we feel that you are putting your own (or others) health and safety at risk.

Generally, the best results in previous years usually come from teams who manage to work at peak performance by taking regular breaks, staying hydrated and eating well. 


Are there ID requirements to enter the event?

You must be able to show some form of photo ID (student card, drivers licence, etc) and have an Eventbrite ticket to enter the event.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

You can contact [email protected] who is the event organiser.


I'm not a student at GCU, can I still attend?

YES! We welcome everyone! Whether you are GCU student, a student from somewhere else, an industry professional or just someone that is not part of games at all but just has an interest to make a game. We are inclusive and open for anyone to attend.
