Global Game Jam Antwerp

Global Game Jam 2017 takes place January 20 – 22, 2017!

Global Game Jam is an annual, world wide event, where you group up with a bunch of other people to create a game in 48 hours. The only restriction provided is a secret theme that will be announced at the start of the event. At more than 500 locations around the world, tens of thousands of other people will be working around that very same theme!

Global Game Jam Antwerp welcomes all designers, 2D/3D artists, writers, programmers, musicians, makers, students, hobbyists... anyone motivated to spend the weekend creating a digital or physical game!

Due to the new official Global Game Jam Age Policy, minors who wish to participate will need to do so under the guidance of their parent or other legal guardian.

Global Game Jam Antwerp welcomes you at Het Bos (Ankerrui 5-7, Antwerp, Belgium). The location will be open for the full length of the jam and you can enter and leave the building whenever you want.


Bring your own equipment (laptop, mouse, drawing tablet, controllers, electronics, pencils, ...) to work with. And headphones if you want to listen to music while working! We can also never have enough network cables & power multi-plugs, so be sure to bring some, if you can.


Breakfast & lunch on Saturday & Sunday, and a communal dinner on Friday are included.
For dinner on Saturday & Sunday, you will need to provide for yourself. But don't worry! There are plenty of places to eat around the area. :)


The location will have a separate room to sleep in.
You will need to bring your own sleeping gear, such as a sleeping bag & mattress ⁄ floor mat.


€ 20,- per participant.
