The Games Institute acknowledges that we are living and working on the traditional territory of the Attawandaron (also known as Neutral), Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River.
On February 2nd- February 5th, 2023, join us for the GLOBAL GAME JAM! Build a game with your team, join a thriving community & have lots of fun over the weekend!
WINTER 2023 Global Jam
Start: Time TBD, Thursday, February 2nd
End: Time TBD, Sunday, February 5th
The Waterloo Game Jam event is an event for game makers of all ages and abilities, and has an equal focus on art, design, and playability! Partnering with the global game jam we are one of the hundreds of sites around the world jamming together. Throughout the weekend, you can work to take your game idea from dream to playable. Mentors from the Games Institute will be giving talks and tutorials about how to brainstorm, prototype, and develop your own games. Starting with paper prototypes and game concepts, the GI mentors will help you discover the world of games outside of programming, from game mechanics, to narrative, and artwork.
Please see the GI Jam page for more details and a tenative schedule.
