Come make a game this week with RVA Game Jams!
If you are a beginner, we've got you covered -- we will be having an in-person kickoff event at the College of Engineering, where we will help you form teams and give you tons of tips to set yourself up for success at your very first jam!

** Please join our discord for news, questions and everything else regarding the jam!! discord.gg/phcvAXwS2x **


  • KICKOFF | Monday, January 30th @ 6PM - 8PM
    Location: VCU School of Engineering East Hall, Room 4229
    In-person kick-off right after the global theme reveal. Game Jam Tips presentation, team formation, beginner onboarding! Get everything ready for your jam!
  • 48-HOUR JAM DATES | Friday, February 3rd @ 4PM - Sunday, February 5th @ 4pm
    Location: Virtual on RVA Game Jams Discord (+ physical meetups at discretion of individual teams)
    As of now, we do not have an in-person site for all groups to work together -- we will be using our discord server discord.gg/phcvAXwS2x as a virtual jam site and information hub for groups to collab, ask questions, troubleshoot and post progress throughout the weekend! Informal meetups will be coordinated through the discord at the discretion/comfort of individual teams.
  • CLOSING SHOWCASE | Sunday, February 5th @ 4PM - 6PM
    Location: VCU School of Engineering East Hall, Room 4229
