4. Check out the keynote and theme announcement. It will be streamed in Discord at 8.00am UTC but if you can't make it, it will be posted in the special channel. (but keep it a secret to the people outside this jam site since each jam site starts at a different time!)

- Gæmz Meetup is based in Tokyo (UTC+9). Therefore, the deadline for this jam site is 31 Jan 8.00AM UTC (3.00AM EST, 9.00 CET, 17.00 JST, 19.00 AEDT, etc.) However, the official guide recommends uploading the project 2 hours before (6AM UTC) in order to prevent network issues.
- The theme will be announced at 8am UTC, 27 Jan but feel free to start/take breaks/finish your game anytime between 3pm UTC, 26 Jan and the deadline as the guide says that you can start jamming anytime Wednesday 27 January.
- There will be the beginning of the jam hangout session in the public voice chat (#voiced voices) at 3pm UTC on the 26th. If you are still deciding or you just wanna have a peek, feel free to pop by.
- I'll open the voice chat at 2pm UTC on the 27th–the 29th (and maybe the 30th) for a quick catch up and whatnots. It's not mandatory but because we can't just meet over the coffee machine, it would be actually cool to have you if you feel like it!
- We could have a video chat session for self introduction, etc. at 3pm UTC Tuesday 26 January. (which is technically the 27th in JST)
