Stadia is pleased to announce our support for Playcrafting’s Global Game Jam 2021 that will take place from Wednesday, January 27 to Sunday, January 31st. Global Game Jam is an annual worldwide game-making event where game developers from all levels and backgrounds gather for a weekend and create games based on one common theme.Playcrafting has been hosting a Global Game Jam site since 2016. Last year, the Playcrafting site was the largest in the United States and second largest in the world with 778 jammers who created 93 games in just 48 hours.
Given the pandemic, the event will be entirely online. The official kickoff event will be streaming live on Playcrafting’s Twitch channel on Thursday, January 28th at 6 PM ET.
The closing event will be streaming on Wednesday, February 3rd at 6 PM ET. Kirk Lakes, Business Development Manager, will be speaking about Stadia Updates and The Stadia Makers Program and Austin Speelman, Technical Account Manager, will be discussing Developing for Stadia: A Brief Overview. In addition, Playcrafting will be hosting a series of workshops that provide basic knowledge in game development throughout the event.
Stadia Makers is excited to see what the teams will create this year! The best games created at the event will receive fun prizes from Stadia Makers including Stadia Pro Passes and Stadia Game Codes.
