We had an amazing GGJ 2013! Bigger and better than our previous jams. We received a great reaction to our theme and diversifiers, to our keynote speakers Erin Robinson and Bret Victor, to Adam and Amanda's great "day after" teaser and the wonderful message from the great Sid Meier. All of this is thanks to the hundreds of volunteers from around the world.

The games are available to be downloaded, played and discussed. Here are some interesting numbers about GGJ 2013.
