Prepare for an innovative career bringing your creative ideas to life as a video game designer with Azusa Pacific’s Bachelor of Arts in Games and Interactive Media. This immersive game design degree program is a confluence of story and play––we believe that truth may be found in both. At APU, we are not simply game makers, we are game changers.





The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development. It is the growth of an idea that in today’s heavily connected world, we could come together, be creative, share experiences and express ourselves in a multitude of ways using video games – it is very universal. The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48 hour development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.


For our first Game Jam, we had 19 people attend

and developed 4 games.
