A New Sifteo Game Jam Appears!


Join us at the Sifteo Offices May 10-12 for our May game jam. Our theme this jam is celebrating women in game development. If you make games, or are interested in making games, please join us and bring your friends! If you're a guy who wants to participate, invite a woman you know who you think would be interested in participating and help us share the jam with even more people!

 

Our doors are open to attendees starting at 6pm Friday evening -- come by and meet the team as well as your fellow jammers. We’ll provide the food and snacks! Around 7:30pm we’ll have a #1ReasonToBe open mic session, a chance for attendees share their stories about being in the games/technology industry. Following this, members of the Sifteo team will speak about development and design methodology to jump start your jam. Then, it’s time for everyone to get to game making!


Don't worry if you can't show up right at the start, since we’ve built in buffer room for people to explore various ideas and teams the first night!


We’ll be providing dinner on Friday (please drop us a line if you have specific dietary restrictions. We'll do our best to accommodate), and breakfast will be served at Sifteo Saturday and Sunday mornings (dig fresh waffles? So do we!). There’ll be beverages and snacks available all weekend, and the Dogpatch area is home to some good restaurants.

Theme

The theme for the jam this month will be "Different Games". Inspired by the recent NYC conference, participants should endeavor to build games that break out of traditional moulds and tropes of gaming and create new and markedly different experiences.
