Global Game Jam Jan 25-27

We are co-hosting the Syracuse site for the Global Game Jam on January 25-27 along with the School of Information Studies and the Raymond von Dran IDEA accelerator.   We will have room for 50 people to come together and make games over one weekend, and we will be joining hundreds of other sites around the world making games this weekend.  It is open to anyone over 18; this is not just for Syracuse University students.


Participants can make analog or digital games, and can come with a group or find a team once we begin.  You don't need any programming skills, but will find that any skills you do have about design, art, music, programming, or just a knowledge of games are all valuable.   No prior experience is needed.

There is room for 50 participants, and the cost is $10.  Due to the limited security available, this will only be open to those 18 and over.  Additional information is at


To register, you will need to do three things:


1 – Visit and pay.  This is how you will guarantee your spot, so do this first.


2 – Create an account on the Global Game Jam site: .  


3 – Sign up to be a Syracuse Jammer by visiting your user account page at and choosing Syracuse University School of Information Studies in the dropdown for Jam Site 2013.
