2021 Edition

A big hackathon for making games, on January 27-31, 2021!


Organizers: Bernice Anne W. Chua; Mark Willson


Global Game Jam's Logo

GGJ2021 is a collaboration between the Chua Productions and Bay Area Devs.

In order to promote the health, safety, and well-being of all the participants due to the global pandemic, this event is online.

But I want to make this online event the most awesome experience that it can possibly be!

For that reason, the intro, opening ceremony, keynote, theme reveal, and for the ending when everyone presents their games and the closing ceremony, and parts for people to mingle; I want to simulate an in-person experience while being online, so we will use this tool called "Conference In VR". (It has the option of being played as a 1st-person game, or being played as a VR game if you have the hardware.)



The middle part, where everyone works on games will be held in the Bay Area Devs Collective Discord.


PLEASE TAG YOURSELF WITH THE @GGJ2021 role in discord to receive jam-related announcements. (using "?rank ggj2021")

We hope that everyone enjoys this event! :D
