Global Game Jam 2020 Des Moines Schedule

Iowa – Des Moines

| 29 Jan 2020

The fun begins Friday evening! Doors open at 5, and the event kicks off at 6. We recommend arriving at Gravitate between 5 – 5:30 PM, so you have time to check in, get settled and enjoy some pizza before the kickoff.

This jam site will be open for the entire 48 hours*, so you can come and go as you need to, but there are a few scheduled events during the jam we encourage you to be around for. Check out the schedule below.
