Salt Lake City, USA Chapter Game Jam Report

Utah – Salt Lake City

| 4 Feb 2022

Last weekend, gamers and creatives all over the world participated in the Global Game Jam, a distributed event where jammers get a theme at the beginning and then create a game prototype to showcase at the end of the jam, usually running over a single weekend.

All told we had 54 jammers and 15 games made!

Our generous local sponsors (along with the GGJ Accessibility Fund) allowed us to have food throughout the event, and contributed to the sanitization fee which enabled us to have an in-person jam. We saw first-hand the teams and jammers that participated in-person had a much better experience and much more focus on the whole. In-person jamming allows people to learn body language, travel time management, reading the room, and other important communication skills.
