The 2013 Global Game Jam (GGJ) runs this weekend from 25-27th January.

The GGJ is the world’s largest game jam event. The so-called hackathon challenges teams from around the world to come up with an idea, create a concept then develop and test the software all within 48 hours.

Farset Labs in Belfast is among 300 international locations that have registered to take part in the 2013.

GGJ brings together a broad range of people with creative and technical expertise, both amateur and professional, for a brief but intensive brainstorming session.

n its first year, more than 1,600 participants produced 370 games. Last year, more than 10,000 people took part, creating over 2,100 new games in a single weekend.
