Global Game Jam at Farset is back again in 2018, with support from Northern Ireland Screen. The Game Jam will run from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th, and is a chance to meet some great people and develop a fun game in a weekend. With a party atmosphere from Friday night, there will be plenty of people there to team up with, create something interesting and, most importantly, to have fun!

You can then complete your Global Game Jam registration atglobalgamejam.org on (or before) Friday 26th January.

Global Game Jam is always very popular; so to avoid disappointment, book early!

Tickets this year are £5 each - buying a ticket will reserve your place for the weekend as well as helping us to provide you with catered meals for the full weekend and a unique site-specific t-shirt!

The game jam’s theme will be announced at 5pm on Friday 26th January so we recommend all participants to be in Farset before that time, or send word if you will be arriving later on. We look forward to seeing you all, as it will be a great weekend!

There is no required skill level or barrier for entry; we welcome programmers, artists, musicians and anyone else who might be interested in being involved! Bring yourself and your equipment – the organisers recommend that participants wait until the beginning of the event to form teams. We have found that this worked well in the past and gives interesting results.
Please note: You must be over 18 on the 26th of January in order to participate.

More information will be provided in the run-up, but please feel free to contact events@farsetlabs.org.uk or ask us questions via Facebook or Twitter with the #farsetggj18 hashtag.
