Global Game Jam: Resources for Jammers and game developers



Next weekend will be the Global Game Jam (GGJ) 2014. The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event taking place around the world at physical locations. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development. It is the growth of an idea that in today’s heavily connected world, we could come together, be creative, share experiences and express ourselves in a multitude of ways using video games – it is very universal. The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48 hour development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.

Here you have a list of resources for Jammers and also game developers / designers. This list was created by our friend of Rosario Game Dev. It's not a complete list but a good starting point. Feel free to added more resources in the comments. Enjoy it!
