Global Game Jam at Hampshire: Friday, January 23

Would you like to make a game in a weekend, alongside 25,000+ game developers around the world? If so, the Global Game Jam is for you! Sign up for free at http://irafay.com/gamejam

When: 6pm Friday, January 23

Where: Hampshire College (all Five College members are welcome!)

What: A weekend full of game making fun (ends 6pm Saturday)

Who: Anyone with an interest in making games, especially if you have some programming, art, audio, or game design skills. Board games are welcome too!

Food and drinks will be provided. Starting promptly at 6pm, there will be a keynote video announcing the secret theme of the weekend. Then we’ll have game idea pitches and team formation, and everyone can get to work on their games. You don’t need a team in advance!

Because game development is fundamentally a collaborative and interdisciplinary process, game jams are excellent opportunities to network with other game developers, including professional developers in the area.

Please contact me (ifay@hampshire.edu) if you have any questions.
