In collaboration with hard-working IGDA volunteer and veteran of the game industry Sheri Rubin, several play parties are organized around the world. '''Play Parties?''' Every year thousands of games get made during the Global Game Jam (GGJ) weekend, but it’s hard for anyone to get through them all and help highlight the hard work that went in over that great weekend. By having post-GGJ play parties we can help make sure as many games as possible get looked at, reviewed, and highlighted around the world. "Read more" for upcoming Play Parties.
