Join the Gwinnett County Public Library Learning Labs for our third annual all ages Game Jam!
This game jam is unranked, and open to everyone worldwide. But if you live in Gwinnett County or surrounding areas, you can enter to be featured with your work at our GameDev Showcase event on May 4th at the Free Comic Book Day event in downtown Lawrenceville.
Additionally, we are still permitting entry of card, board, tabletop, and hybrid games.
Our theme will be announced on March 1st at 9:00 am EST. Make sure to come back here to view our announcement video!
We are the Gwinnett County Public Library's Learning Labs. We are a community makerspace that provides the means to create, collaborate, and share digital content. If you are a videographer, graphic designer, creative professional, hobbyist or artist, the Learning Lab has the software and equipment to turn your vision into reality.
In the Learning Labs, you can create and share music, podcasts, video and photography content with our collection of audiovisual equipment. You can design digital and printable graphics for your business with our digital drawing tablets and the full Adobe Creative Suite. Make your cosplay dreams and product ideas a reality with our 3D printers, sewing machines, CNC machines and laser cutter. Your imagination is the architect in the Learning Labs.
Come back on March 1st at 9:00 am EST to view our rules.
What ages can participate?
This is an all ages Game Jam! To publish games on itch.io, you must be 18 years old (or have a parent or guardian publish it for you). More information on itch.io Terms of Service are located here. If you have a child that wants to participate but doesn't know how to use an engine like Unity or Unreal, they can use the Scratch website and submit a link to their game through our website when the form goes live on March 1st.
Do I need to live in Gwinnett County, Georgia, or have a library card?
Absolutely not! One reason we chose to host on this website is so that anyone can participate!
What tools can I use?
You can use any tool available to you. Entries from any engines will be accepted.
How do we get our game featured in a highlight reel on YouTube or at the Showcase event in May?
We will post a link to the form here when it goes live on March 1st.
Who owns the game I created?
You will own all the rights to your game. If you consent and we select your game to be featured in a highlight reel or Showcase, all credits go to the creator(s).
