Global Game Jam: The best thing that can happen to you!

Gazimagusa had a great first time at the Global Game Jam this year! A group of 15 people spent more than 48 hours at the Green Hall Complex of the Eastern Mediterranean University to come together and engage into the most exciting thing on earth: making games!

Our event was aired via ustream for the entire 48 hours. Despite being our first ever participation in a game jam, the organization was flawless and no problem has been reported. Three teams were formed during the process, and one team was able to finish their game in time.

It was a great event and we are looking forward to the GGJ 2011!!!

Global Game Jam: Only 3 Days to Go!

Gazimağusa is one of this years Global Game Jam locations. We got the support of our university and my faculty will host the event that will take place between 29-31 January.

Since it is our “pilot” event, we were happy to have it not too crowded: our group of participants stands at 15 right now and that is just about the right number to run it smoothly.

I’m very excited! This is a phantastic opportunity for us. An opportunity to show our enthusiasm and skills, an opportunity to show that we have the capacity to do amazing stuff on this island.

GGJ 2010, we’re coming!!

We’re in the Game!

It’s official now: Gazimağusa (Famagusta) is part of this year’s Global Game Jam.
