The Idea

Want to meet people, brainstorm, discuss, design, code, experiment, have fun and make great games? This is precisely the event for you!

LT Game Jam is similar to a hackathon where people come together for 48 hours to create games around a central theme revealed at the start of the jam. The event structure is usually that everyone gathers on Friday evening, watches a short video keynote with advice from leading game developers, and then a secret theme is announced. All jammers worldwide are then challenged to make games based on that theme, which must be completed by Sunday afternoon.

LT Game Jam is an excellent challenge for aspiring and seasoned game makers to balance creativity, time management, teamwork, and game production skills. Participation requires focus and stamina, involving 48 hours of innovation, experimentation, collaboration, and fun.

LT Game Jam is the starting point for countless game developers who build the foundation of their careers at their first LT Game Jam event.


LT Game Jam is a part of an international Global Game Jam event!

The Global Game Jam is the world’s largest game creation event taking place around the globe, boasting tens of thousands of participants (jammers) at hundreds of physical and virtual sites in over one hundred countries around the world.

The Global Game Jam helps to foster new friendships, increases confidence in aspiring game developers, and creates opportunities within local communities. The GGJ is dedicated to collaboration and camaraderie and is not a competition.

When & Where

LT Game Jam 2024 will be held in 5 venues across Lithuania and an activity hub at the LT Game Jam Discord, plus an event video stream on the YouTube channel. LT Game Jam 2024 will start on January 26th and end on January 28th, 2024.


Who can participate?

You can participate if you are a developer, a student, a programmer, a designer, a thinker, an artist, a musician, etc. Professional or amateur, doesn’t matter. You can join solo and form a team at the start of the event or you can join with your pre-existing team. The online format of the event will create a unique chance to have no limits on team formation, composition, or location.

Are there any prizes?

The short answer is no. LT Game Jam is not a competition, so we are not trying to outsmart each other, but strive to experiment, break the rules, hack our creativity, ride the rocket of imagination and rewire our brains, break the present AND most importantly – have fun. Prizes would spoil it all, but we will send iconic LT Game Jam 2024 t-shirts for the members of the favourite teams as voted by participants of the jam, and each team that completes the project will be eligible to submit it for next year’s LT Game Awards Best Game Jam Game category.
