Information
The Chalmers | GU Game Jam is a local game jam event organized within the gameplay design course. It is located at the IT-university and other students at the school can join in at their pleasure (although we might have to spread out in the building, i.e. business as usual). The game jam is part of the Global Game Jam.

The game jam has been, but links to the games created during the games can be found here.
