GGJ 2020 Jammers at the Melbourne Australia site.

Thank you to everyone who jammed with us this year!

Site organisers around the world hang up the keys to the doors of their jam sites for another year, the collectors have come to take away a record number of pizza boxes into the recycling, and hopefully everyone has had a chance to get some well-deserved rest, it means yet another Global Game Jam® weekend is now over!

For our this year we had 48,700 jammers who made 9,600 games at 934 sites in 118 countries. Yet again we have broken all of last year's records and become the biggest game jam ever. 

We had 7 new countries take part for the first time this year: Burkina Faso, Cyprus, Mauritius, Zimbabwe, Benin, Senegal and Sudan.

The GGJ Executive Committee and Board would like to send out a heartfelt thank you to all of the jammers and volunteers whose participation made GGJ20 such a phenomenal success. You are all wonderful and we can't wait to do it again on January 31 - February 2, 2021!

GGJ 2020 Games 

Now that the hard work of making all of those games is over, it's time to have some fun. All 9,600 of the games created during GGJ 2020 are now available to browse and play on the GGJ website right now.

This year's theme was "Repair".

Support our Fundraiser

GGJ is hosting a fundraiser on Indiegogo this year to raise some funds for our website project.

If every jammer donated just $1, this would fill the spot of a whole headline sponsor, and would give us a real boost to our funding for 2020. We are currently at 6% of our goal, so please consider donating today.
