Past January 24th to 26th, the Neapolis in Vilanova i la Geltrú (Barcelona) was the local site of the Global Game Jam (GGJ), a worldwide jam with 480+ locations in 70+ countries, doubtless the world’s largest game jam event.
The organizers graciously invited me to be part of the Jury for the 2014 Game Jam, joining a hand-picked selection of talented professionals from the video game industry: Emiliano Labrador, Guillem Rosset, Danae Vara, and Mel Perez-Ventana.
The 2014 edition has been the most successful ever in Neapolis, 71 jammers, a record regarding previous editions and the second biggest GGJ in Spain this year.

From a personal point of view it was a really cool experience. The people there had a great time playing and developing for many different “toys” like kinect, google glass, oculus, etc.  It’s always really exciting to meet young and talented people, and the mood in the GGJ helps the sharing of ideas and having fun working together 48h non stop making games. GGJ is one of those things that make you wish to be 20 years old again.
If you are studying anything related to video games, my advice is to look for your local GGJ site and be there next year. For more information visit globalgamejam.org
