Athens Game Jam is back and better than ever for 2018! Compete and build the biggest, baddest game you can in just 48 hours!

Register here!

A game jam is an event where you form a team and create a game over the course of a weekend. We announce a theme at the start of the jam on Friday evening. Teams create a new original game based on that theme within the next 48 hours.

As usual, we will provide food at the jam. The game jam is a nonprofit event, and our goal is to keep it free for everyone! In order to make this possible, however, we rely on donations from generous attendees and sponsors. Let us take a moment to thank our 2018 sponsors:

Nexcor Technologies
Insomnia Cookies Zombie Coffee & Donuts
-More coming soon!


Q: How much does this event cost?
A: Athens Game Jam is free to enter, and we will provide free food as well!

Q: Should I come alone, or bring a team?
A: Whatever you want! Jams are a great way to meet new people, and coming alone will force you to network! On the other hand, you can use it as a fun weekend to make something with your best friends!

Q: I'm from out of town. Do I need to pay for an expensive hotel room?
A: Unlike previous years, AGJ's venue will remain open overnight this year! You need nothing but a laptop and sleeping bag!

Q: Parking?
A: Parking will be free at Driftmier, starting at 5PM on Friday.

Q: What are the prizes?
A: All members of the winning team will receive passes to SIEGE game development expo. Other prizes are pending.

Q: What is the theme?
A: The theme will be randomly revealed at 7PM on Friday. Even we don't know yet!

Q: Sounds great! Where do I sign up?
A: You can register here. If you forget to register, you can still show up on the day of the event!
