Newsbrief: The annual Global Game Jam has announced the final dates for its 2013 event, and is currently looking for venues all over the world in which to host this popular game development challenge. The upcoming game jam will take place January 25-27, 2013. As in previous years, participating game developers will have 48 hours to create a brand-new video game based on a central theme. Last year, the event took place across 242 locations in 47 countries, and the event's 6,500 participants produced nearly 1,500 games. In 2013, the Global Game Jam hopes to include even more worldwide locations for its participants. The event's organizers are inviting educational institutions, game studios, and other interested parties to sign up as a host location for one of the game jam's numerous worldwide branches.
