What is a Game Jam? It is where designers and developers come together to create a video game in 48 hrs.
A theme is announced at the beginning of the event and teams will need to build a video game based off of that theme.
Around 4-5pm Sunday Afternoon (based on number of entrants) we will have judges come around to play all of the games
At the end of the event awards will be handed out to the top games
There will be a theme announced on Friday at the beginning of the event and teams will need to create a game based on that theme
Use whatever tools, software, game making software that you are most comfortable with (Unity is the best Game Engine to use but use whatever works for you)
You will need to bring your own computer, wacom tablets, paper, pencils, coffee, food, snacks, etc…
Come with a team of 2 (programmer/designer) or if not with a partner then we will match you up with a team (max number of team members – 2)
Judges will play games to give awards
From 4-5pm (after judging complete and awards handed out) all will be allowed to play each others games
We will all be able to help each other whether it is with design/art or CS so don’t be intimidated. Come to learn, be challenged, and have FUN!
