Each January, game developers and enthusiasts gather at sites around the world to develop an entire game in 48 hours during the Global Game Jam.

Minnesota had one jam site this year, titled GameCraft, co-hosted by GLITCH, and IGDATC, at the University of Minnesota.

Boasting 83 registered “jammers” who uploaded 28 games to the Global Game Jam site, participation doubled from the previous year. The event is designed to stimulate collaboration and learning over competition and winning.
