On January 29, get your #gamedev on in the 2016 Global Game Jam sponsored by Crytek.
In an effort to show our commitment to indie development and to nurture the indie community, Crytek is sponsoring the Global Game Jam 2016. We believe it’s an awesome opportunity for aspiring and professional game developers to meet other enthusiasts, work together and unleash their creativity!
"The GGJ brings together talented individuals from within your community. It is a unique opportunity for people to push their skills and challenge their way of working. Participants work concurrently with developers around the globe; we rally around a central theme, and then have 48 hours to create a game."
We believe this is a great opportunity for developers not only because they get to experience an exhilarating race against the clock, but also because they will need to get creative and explore skills they might have never used before; an artist might need to cover some basic programming, a programmer could become a producer, and so on!

Hope to see you there,
The CRYENGINE team.
