West Virginia University is hosting the 2016 Global Game Jam! he Global Game Jam is the world's largest jam event (game creation) taking place around the world over the same weekend.
The jam begins Friday late afternoon, where participants hear presentations on game design topics and watch a short video keynote with advice for a successful jam, followed by the announcement of the theme. All sites worldwide are then challenged to make games based on the same theme.
