“As the social app for gamers, we’re all about creating opportunities for our creators.

“The indie development community is a vibrant and vital part of the games landscape, and Together Jam provides game developers from around the world with the opportunity to showcase their talents while having fun with some of NBCUniversal’s beloved characters and stories,” said Bill Kispert, SVP and GM, Universal Games and Digital Platforms. “Together with the passionate teams at Game Jolt, LootLocker, LIFT Labs, and G4, we look forward to interacting with developers of all sizes and makeups and seeing their creativity come to life.”
