GGJ Closed for Local Host Registration
It's almost time! After months of preparation Global Game Jam is almost upon us! With over 300 registered locations this year and just a couple of days left before the jam kicks off starting in New Zealand, we have officially closed registrations for local hosts.
This means that there will be no more new sites added, of course participants can still sign up (if the local site still has openings left).
Many countries have exponentially grown in size with the number of locations, for example Japan has grown from 7 to 17 sites. New countries such as Nigeria and Macedonia kick off with 2 GGJ sites and veteran countries such as Brazil (24) and Finland (12) spread GGJ out over the country. Continent wise: All continents (except Antartica) have at least 1 location. Europe has about 100 locations which means it covers about 1/3rd of all locations.
At GGJ HQ we are elated by the enthusiasm of the numerous organizers and volunteers around the world that are putting in an enormous amount of hours and effort into making Global Game Jam happen worldwide. Thank you!
