Q&A with Sarah Sexton on Global Game Jam (GGJ) at DePaul University on January 19, 2018. Game jams are a great opportunity to socialize, put your skills to the test, and most importantly, make games! However, organizing a game jam is much different from participating in one. This presentation will cover tried-and-true strategies for maximizing your game jam experience as both an organizer and a participant, just in time for Global Game Jam!
