Join us at LeanDog for the:
3rd Annual Global Game Jam
January 27-29, 2012
Cleveland will be participating in the Global Game Jam 2012 event from 5:00 PM EST on Friday, January 27th 2012 through 5:00 PM EST Sunday, January 29th 2012. The Global Game Jam is a world wide annual event where teams of artists, coders, designers and musicians collaborate to build videogames or boardgames in just 48 hours based on a common theme. No matter your skill level, you can participate or even playtest for a team. Teams will be formed at the event based on the interests and skill sets of attendees.
LeanDog, an Agile development company here in Cleveland, will be hosting the event for the full 48 hours. Participants will need to bring their own laptops (please no desktops) and whatever software or technology they need for creating games. Participants also have the option to build “paper prototype” games using whatever supplies they wish to bring. A common theme, such as “evolution”, will be announced during the Global Game Jam Keynote which we will stream to everyone. Afterwards, we will pitch ideas, brainstorm and split off into teams and start jamming.
