Description

Global Game Jam is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, game jam in the world. Our university’s game development club has been hosting GGJ ever since 2015, and since then has grown to be the biggest site in Chile, with over a hundred participants making around 20 games yearly.

I went from being a jammer in 2016, to helping with the preparations in 2017-2018 and finally leading the organization in 2019 after the senior members of the club had departed.
