Abstract

The increase in participation in game jams has given rise to an increase in research and scholarly interest in the potential benefits of game jams. While these potential benefits can include international collaboration and diversity of ideas and personal networks, there is limited efforts in using such cross-border collaboration possibilities and studying them. In this exploratory study, the authors seek to understand the possible methods, potentials, and benefits of participants collaborating in different forms and across site or national borders. While the results are preliminary, the authors identify some potential solutions for game jam participants to form teams that span regional, national, or international borders.
