Site Approved for Global Game Jam ’20

Hi everyone! Great news. Our Galway jam-site has been approved!

Jammer registration will open on November 8th. You can check it out here: https://globalgamejam.org/2020/jam-sites/galway-ireland

At this early stage if you have any feedback or requests please get in touch at darren.ggj@mindcauldron.com.

The upcoming GGJ20 will be the 6th Global Game Jam event to take place in Galway, and the second of such events that I have lead as an organiser. I am looking forward to it and hope we can continue to have a great time with our lovely jam.

Our venue will be the PorterShed, Galway. They are simply incredible. Our game development community in Galway has always been given an awesome space for our game jams ever since the PorterShed was established, and it has been the home for our monthly 1GAM Galway meetups since late 2017. The natural choice for us for the next Global Game Jam.

Organising a Galway jam-site for Global Game Jam 2019

Hi folks,

I’m putting together Galway’s next Global Game Jam. Global Game Jam 2019.

Over the last 4 years, Pulse College Galway has brought Global Game Jam to Galway and made it into a landmark game making event for the community. Unfortunately, Pulse College Galway has closed it’s Galway Campus earlier this year and Chris Colston will not be able to continue as an organiser.

Chris reached out to the community and I answered the call. I have run many game jams in the past, and I’m currently on the board of Global GameCraft LtdG. Chris has been supportive of me taking on the role of organiser for this event. I am more than happy to ensure that Galway does not lose it’s Global Game Jam tradition!

I’ve registered with Global Game Jam and will update mindcauldron.com with news over the coming weeks.
