The GGJ2014 weeekend was pretty great. We had a cool venue, and lots of great baked snacks provided by Two Lives Left. We're looking forward to seeing all our new and old faces again for our next BIG JAM, Adelaide Game Jam later in the year.
In the meantime, it's time to accept votes for the GRAND PRIZE WINNING GAME at Jamalaide's GGJ2014 site. Play the games and cast a vote, and the winning game will receive $100 (oh my). This is also a great opportunity to see all the games we made over the GGJ weekend!

Early Registration ends 13th January
07 January 2014
The $25 Earlybird registration for GGJ ends at 5pm on Monday the 13th of January. That means that Monday is the last day to register if you wanted to get one of our totally cool GGJ2014 tshirts, which may look a little something like this:
General registration will remain open until closer to the jam date. While you can pay on the day to enter, registration guarantees you meals during the jam (which we cannot guarantee to people who don't register due to planning constraints). So make sure you register, and we'll see you on the 24th for an amazing GGJ weekend!
