What originally started out as a half-joke has now become an international event, with over a dozen cities and hundreds of game developers onboard. I’ll be hosting the Las Vegas game jam, and am currently finalizing location and sponsors.
The concept, in a nutshell:
Choose a game idea tweeted by PeterMolydeux (here are some of his favorites), team up with a few friends or strangers on the evening of the 29th, and then spend the weekend of March 30 – April 1 making a game.
If you’d like to take part, RSVP via the Facebook event link below. Cajole friends into signing up and form your own team, or group up with strangers and make some new friends. Win win.
So here’s the plan:
Meet at the Shuffle Master Interactive studio on Friday evening at 7:00pm. From there we’ll assemble teams, game concepts, and introduce the whole thing.
Teams can work together however they want over the weekend. The studio will be open and food and drinks will be served (huge thanks to Shuffle Master for sponsoring!).
At 7pm on Sunday, development will cease and we’ll have ourselves a mini festival, with each team given an opportunity to show off their game. Prizes may be awarded, but don’t do this for prizes. Do this for The Art.
