It's a Wrap!

Global Game Jam

Similarly to last year, Instituto Superior Técnico’s LabJogos, in collaboration with Faculdade de Belas-Artes, is hosting a new edition of the Global Game Jam. GGJ 2020 is an event where participants from around the world have 48h to develop a game on a theme unveiled on the first day of the event.

This partnership offers participants the opportunity to integrate a multidisciplinary team comprised of the most varied skill sets: from visual arts (2D & 3D) to programming (2D & 3D), audio (sound effects and music) and others.

Join us and other videogame lovers for an amazing weekend!
