We will be forming the teams at the day of the jam and will try to organize it in a way in which people with different skill sets will be grouped together.

Some Rules

Be respectful of the Jam and your fellow Jammers! This is meant to be a fun time for everyone, so please be considerate!

This is a fun event, not a competition and will be treated as such.

No Alcohol or drugs are allowed 

The jam follows York University Code of Conduct as well as the following:
Fostering an inclusive, barrier-free, and safe space to facilitate Global Game Jam is paramount. We aim and are committed to ensuring that while participating in the jam every person feels safe, respected and free from harassment and discrimination, in jam settings. All student participants and guests are expected to uphold these values and York’s commitment to being a “welcoming and approachable campus, embracing global perspectives and differences in cultures, people and thinking, by engaging communities in collegial dialogue” (York University Free Speech Statement of Policy 2018, s.3(1)). 

We want to ensure everyone can fully enjoy this course and can bring their whole selves to the experience. If there are barriers we may have unintentionally created, please let us know at [email protected] 

Students who will break those rules will be asked to leave the jam.
