“If we can create a global community in which people can talk to one another and meet, we can make a huge step toward world peace.
I had an excellent experience! In my opinion, GGJ Next is best for connecting two generations of video game makers. GGJ Next is the best framework to help both of us (Mentors and Kids) learn together and help one another. ” – Ali Saffari – Site Lead, Mashhad, Razavi Khorasan Province, Iran
