with as Little as $1

The Global Game Jam®, a charity organization that unifies professional, student and hobbyist game designers each year in a worldwide effort to promote creative collaboration, is in the final days of its IndieGoGo campaign to raise money for operational costs and a website relaunch.

Each year for the past 12 years the Global Game Jam (GGJ®) has brought together thousands of game developers in physical locations around the world in over 100 countries to create video game experiences surrounding a centralized theme that changes each year.

Running the GGJ centrally costs around US$350K per year, including staffing costs, web hosting, online tools, video production, GDC and GGJ NEXT-related costs.This budget is primarily covered by sponsors, as well as support from the broader global community.
