Global Game Jam 2023

January 27, 2023

We are excited to announce Global Game Jam and all the information that comes with it. Online and In-Person participants are both welcome.

For Global Game Jam, we will be using the Coop Event Discord to handle announcements and online participation.

Visitors will be on guest internet, so it’d be smart to download large files at home whenever possible. The spaces are designed for students with notebooks, and we will not be rewiring the venue for “LAN party” style PC rigs, so folks with large computer and electrical needs should adjust their technology footprint/participation accordingly.

Venue may fill up fast. Reach out and let us know if you have any questions.

Schedule for the Week:


Monday, Jan 30 @ 7p, Early Theme Reveal/Keynote Online only on Twitch


If you decide to get the early theme reveal please DO NOT POST THE THEME PUBLICLY. We do not want to spoil the theme for anyone starting on Friday.
