Event Details

On March 8th-10th, game developers around the planet will gather to make games about space and science for 48 hours.

The Dark Side of the Jam is open to all, whether you’re a veteran developer, hobbyist, or student. NASA is graciously opening the airlock for us to jam at the Ames research facility in Mountain View, California. Attendees will be fed, internetted, and if desired, staying overnight.

The “Dark Side of the Jam” is managed by the Night Rover Challenge and a fearless team of crack-coder-developers. The Night Rover is a NASA Centennial Challenge with a $1.5 Million prize purse for ridiculously amazing energy storage technology. In addition to doing really crazy amazing prize programs, the team is creating a robust education program, which is why the Dark Side of the Jam exists… yes, games are educational.

NASA's Centennial Challenges progam supports the educational efforts of the Night Rover Challenge and has coordinated the opportunity for us to host this game jam onsite at NASA’s Ames Research center.

We will be on a NASA facility so... please do not: smuggle illegal contraband, break any ITAR laws, use the NASA “meatball” logo in obscene ways, blow anything up, or otherwise conduct yourself in unsavory behavior while on the NASA facility. It is a federal offense to do so.
