ExPlay Global Game Jam 2013 – Bristol

Be part of the world's largest game jam! Through collaboration and community, Global Game Jam has become the largest game development event in the world, bringing together tens of thousands of developers and designers over 48 hours to share experiences and create great games! The weekend event stirs a global creative buzz in games… while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48-hour development cycle and although the event is heavily focused on rapid prototyping, there are many other areas where people who are not technical can contribute to a game. At each site across the world, participants gather to think up ideas, form small groups, develop creative innovative games and present to their peers and the global games community, all in a frantic and limited time period. Participants of the Jam are of all skill levels and in various fields, with everyone from professional game developers to educators, artists and designers welcome to participate.

There are currently 233 locations across the world participating this year, and to make things simple, ExPlay has registered the regional jam this year at the head offices of Creative England in Bristol (with free minibus from Plymouth). Will you be representing the South West at Global Game Jam this year? Now into our second year running the regions largest Global Game Jam, ExPlay represents the independent games industry across the South West of England and is the bond between academia and industry, helping students and graduates connect with industry. ExPlay will be promoting all the games created, as part of our on-going mission to raise the profile of the South West games industry. This year we are also pleased to have support from Creative England and Microsoft, who will be running 2 sub-themes to add a twist to the global theme and give teams the chance to take their prototypes onward into full development!
