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
