20-22 January 2017
Book the dates already now! As every year, in one of the last weekends of January is the Global Game Jam weekend, so clear your calendar and come prepared! We will create games and have fun together!
Plovdiv Game Jam is open to anyone interested in video games - professional, students or just people with talent! The idea behind the event is to get together a mix of people with different backgrounds, interests and skills, and motivate them to work together on an idea - to plan and execute the concept in 48 hours. Just for the sake of the challenge!
Plovdiv Game Jam is part of Global Game Jam (GGJ) - the world's largest game jam event. In Bulgaria, in 2017 Global Game Jam will be held in five locations – Sofia, Plovdiv, Burgas, Varna and Gabrovo. The event will be live streamed globally to the other Global Game Jam locations.

Plovdiv Game Jam is an unique opportunity for local companies to support and spread the word about the Bulgarian game industry. Sponsorship money goes toward things such as logistics, marketing, operations, and opportunities to present the games at international conferences. Our goal is to promote rapid prototyping, iterative design, collaboration and game studies while uniting the game development community in a giant experiment in creativity.
