Green Bay Global Game Jam Jan. 21-23 @ Urban Hub


340 N Broadway, Green Bay Wisconsin, 54303 - Urban Hub

This annual, international event challenges new and experienced developers to create original games in 48 hours.

Digital and non-digital games will be designed to follow a loose theme that will be revealed by Global Game Jam headquarters at 5 pm on the event’s opening night. The theme for last year’s virtual event, for example, was “Lost and Found.” Organizing the Green Bay site is UW-Green Bay lecturer Ben Geisler who has overseen three previous GGJ sites in Green Bay. A veteran game developer himself, Geisler brings industrial experience to the Game Jam.
