Waterford Global Game-Jam Waterford is hosting its Gobal Game-Jam in the ArcLabs Research and Innovation Centre on WIT's West Campus at Carriganore, Waterford for the second year, with students from WIT's Department of Computing & Mathematics.

The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is an annual event that takes place in many locations around the world. The 48-hour “jam” is dedicated to meeting new people and developing a game together.

Jam packed 48 hours

The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48-hour development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.
