Global Game Jam ONLINE 2021

January 25, 2021

Global Game Jam ONLINE 2021 Banner

We’re excited to announce St Louis’ 2021 Global Game Jam!

This year’s jam is 100% ONLINE and the GGJ org has asked us to make some extra emphasis on the requirements this year:
The event is ONLINE ONLY. The GGJ org has specifically BANNED anyone from organizing physical gatherings as part of this event. No physical gathering is allowed to say they are associated with or organized for the purpose of the Global Game Jam. The switch to online is not simply a logistical choice. It is an express requirement by the GGJ org not to be associated with any COVID-19 contact tracing.


We’ve been asked to offer a formal teamforming process and be deliberate in our use of online tools to facilitate the event, so we’ve set up a specialized STLGameDev Events Discord for this effort:
(This is separate from the community-run Discord server you may already be familiar with.)


The schedule is also very different this year:
Monday, January 25 at 10p CST – Theme Reveal Broadcast (
Wednesday, January 27 – Teamforming Begins
Friday, January 29 at 6p – Game Jam Begins, Opening Ceremony
Sunday, January 31 at 5p – Game Jam Ends, Closing Ceremony


See you on our Events Discord for full details!
