The Global Game Jam is an annual event happening all around the world, usually in January. It started back in 2009 and operates as a non-profit charity. People from different parts of the globe come together to brainstorm ideas, form small groups, and create new and innovative games. They then present their creations to their peers and the global community, all within a tight 48-hour time frame for each time zone. This event is open to everyone, ranging from professional game developers to educators, artists, and designers. Global Game Jam oversees the whole affair. Tradebyte, having hosted the Jam Site multiple times before, is thrilled to be hosting it again this year.
