Plovdiv Game Jam 2021
Friday starts with talks from game dev professionals, an international keynote, revelation of the Global Game Jam secret theme and group/team forming. Saturday and Sunday the teams are working on the games prototypes.
This year, due to the Covid-19 situation we are only going to have the event online.
GGJ will make the official theme public already on Wednesday. This time the theme don't have to be secret, as all the locations are online and streaming live.
18.00 – GGJ keynote and theme reveal
So, in 2021, the teams will have an extra day, Thursday to work on their prototypes. Rejoys! 🙂
The teams can work when they need to and plan their time accordingly. We will have volunteers, ready to help and assist, 24/7 on the official PGJ discord server.
Our official live stream is going to be on Twitch, but we will also have Facebook live. We are still preparing an online mini-conference about game development on Friday, the 29.01.2021 and Saturday, the 30.01.2021. Аnyone that is interested and wants to watch the talks and presentations, our Twitch channel is open and we welcome all.
We know that it's very difficult times for all of us, and it is not going to be as fun as other years, but we all hope that we will have good time nonetheless and make some awesome games together.
The Plovdiv Game Jam organizer team is looking forward to see you and jam with you in Discord!
