New deadline for sending GGJ13 Video Greetings: Jan 15th, 2013
Due to popular demand, we are bringing back the hellos from around the world. Due to the fact that we just had too many things on our plate, we had first given up on the idea, but Kai Lynk from Melbourne Australia has stepped up as a volunteer to help us and you out.
This year we are asking for something a little different for the videos. We are looking:
Coinciding with the Global Game Jam opening up for jammer registrations for 2013, we are proud to release our new teaser video. The teaser video has been made by the same amazing team that put together the trailer for 2012 and edited together the keynote.
It is also on Youtube in the official GGJ Channel: http://youtu.be/HuWJe22RIK0
Please help us spread the video, and the message that signups for Global Game Jam 2013 are now open!!
Almost 160 sites are now online for GGJ 2013, and it's time to open registration for participants. Jammers can now register for their favorite jam sites on globalgamejam.org. This is done by editing your user account page, and choosing the right jam location from the pull down menu called "Jam Site 2013".
Also, if you are visiting any approved 2013 jam site page, you should see a small block on the right column that has information about current jammers and a link to register for the site. Every jam site now has a /jammers page that shows everyone currently registered online. It looks like Staffs Uni Games Academy already has quite a few people registered!
