University of Silicon Valley is proud to be a jam site for another awesome event. Campus facilities will be open 24hrs a day for the duration of the event. People of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to join. MUST BE 18 YEARS OR OLDER TO PARTICIPATE. Under 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian upon checking in. You do not need to be an active game developer to participate. Many game developers and game dev students will be in attendance, though, so it will be an excellent way to network and learn!
All games will have the same theme, which will be announced at our kickoff on Friday. If you have more questions about how the Global Game Jam works, visit globalgamejam.org. We will provide gamer fuel throughout the weekend including drinks and snacks and we'll also have designated quiet zones for teams needing the space to concentrate. There are several food choices within walking distance of USV's campus in case you're craving something different as well.
• Drinks and Snacks
• Vending Machines
• Onsite Security
You'll want to bring anything you need to make a game over the weekend. We will not be providing laptops, software, cords, controllers, adapters, etc. so make sure you bring what's relevant to your needs. You'll also want to make sure you have your government issued ID as well.
