Global Game Jam 2018


  • The National Videogame Arcade 24-32 Carlton Street Nottingham, England, NG1 1NN United Kingdom (map)

We are very excited to be hosting Global Game Jam 2018 here at the National Videogame Arcade.

Entry is open to everyone, and prior experience is most certainly not required! Please be advised that under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the duration of the jam.

On site cafe bar open 10am-6pm each day.

The structure of a jam is usually that everyone gathers on Friday late afternoon, watches a short video keynote with advice from leading game developers, and then a secret theme is announced. All sites worldwide are then challenged to make games based on that same theme, with games to be completed by Sunday afternoon.

Please note: The National Videogame Arcade will be open over the weekend. Game Jam participation is free, but does not grant access to the galleries.
