The Global Game Jam is one of those events that you cannot predict what will happen. From the friends you make to the awesome projects that come out of it, GGJ always creates an experience I never forget. The Calgary site has always been so friendly, organized and very accommodating.

Being able to collaborate with other Calgarians in a pure creative jammieness is my favorite way to spend a weekend. I look forward to coming out to globalgamejam whenever I can!

The Global Game Jam is such an energizing experience. It's a lot of work to get it all done in such a short amount of time, but I always come away from it with a sense of accomplishment. I usually learn something new in that 48 hours too. You would think it would be exhausting, but I'm always excited to get back to work afterwards.
