Be sure to head over here for +7500 free premium SFX this weekend!

Alright, the Global Game Jam starts today all around the globe – and if you do game audio, get ready to join the fun!

So what exactly is the Global Game Jam (GGJ)? The GGJ is described as a hackathon aimed at game development, and takes place in 91 countries (!) and at 630 Game Jam Sites. The theme of the year is revealed later today – and once that’s out, all GGJ participants start working towards making games based on that theme. The whole thing ends on Sunday January 31st.

Last year saw 72 countries taking part, 23,000+ registered participants in 488 locations with 4292 game projects registered – and this year looks to handily beat that. If you want to take part, simply hop on over to the Live Status page, find a Jam near you and register to take part. There you’ll also find further info on what to bring along.
