So from Friday 6PM to Sunday 6PM the world freezes for all of us and each team is gathered to brainstorm, design, model program and sound design a game.
865 game jam at the same time around the world, it brings industry professionals, hobbyists and students together.
And this year’s theme is…hold on to your hats… <<What home means to you>>…
We at Victoria Films love this kind of creative, physical and mental challenge.

This is not a competition There is nothing to win except the pleasure of creating. It’s a moment of work, concentration, exchange, madness … Brief history In 2008, Susan Gold, a member of the IGDA (US) decided to create a global Jam based on the Indie Game Jam, Ludum Dare
and Nordic Game Jam. Developed by IGDA (International Game Developer’s Association), the Global Game Jam is since 2013 a non-profit association
that continues to grow and attract more and more jammers.
