Melbourne Global Game Jam 2024

This is the planned schedule for Melbourne Global Game Jam 2024.

Please note that meals will probably be staggered so we don't get a rush of everyone trying to get food all at once. We'll likely put call outs for each floor at different times to help things run smoothly.

Friday 26th Jan

  • 3:00pm to 5:45pm: On-site registration opens
  • 235 Normanby Rd, South Melbourne at SAE Institute
  • Please arrive as close to 3pm as is possible for you. Registrations will run through to 5:45pm, but it’ll be difficult to get everyone in for the opening presentations if everyone turns up at 5:30pm.
  • 6:00pm: Opening presentations and theme reveal
  • Keynote speaker: Ben Naulls
  • Some of you may have already seen the theme as it will be announced ahead of time on the central GGJ Twitch stream. We ask you don’t discuss it (e.g. around the registration desk or in Discord) until the theme reveal at the opening presentations - some people will want to be surprised!
  • 7:00pm: Team formation & Dinner.

Saturday 27th Jan

  • 8:00am: Breakfast.
  • 11:00am: All game pages must be made by now on the central GGJ website. See the submission page for details on how to do this.

Sunday 28th Jan

  • 8:00am: Breakfast.
  • 1:00pm: Lunch.
