What is the Global Game Jam (GGJ)? It’s like a hackathon where there are developers, designers, audio designers, idea makers get together and create a game in 48hrs.

RedBit will be there to support two of our team members Mike Potvin (developer) and Kevin Carey (UX & Visual Designer) as they participate in their team of five other developers.  Internally at RedBit, we have been building some games for customers using MonoGame and Xamarin so thought this was a good opportunity to support our teams initiatives and also support the Toronto Global Game Jam and the developer community by being an official sponsor of the event.  RedBit’s leadership team, Mark & Barranger, will also be there for some coding, support and ideas!

Will you be there? Be sure to connect with the RedBit team, as our team is growing and there may be opportunities to work on some fun projects!
