Event Details

We're having a game jam at Cantina.

What's a game jam you ask? It's like one of those new-fangled hackathons, but instead of making websites or apps, we make! The rules are simple, come in on Saturday and Sunday and work on a game.

You can come out and find some team members to help you with a project already underway or to just start something new and drill on it for a weekend and see where you end up. There's no fixed scope, no rules, no boundaries. All you have to do is MAKE A GAME!

This is something we hope will be the first in a series of recurring events to encourage game developers in the Boston area to come together and embrace the vibrant and extremely active community of developers that live and work in our lovely city.

We'll have some free beers and pizzas to fuel the creative processes as necessary.

Since games take some time to make, we're doing this as a two-day event over a single weekend so teams will have plenty of time to make some good headway on their projects. We'll hold roughly 20 minutes of lightning talks at the start of each day for teams to showcase their projects or discuss tools or techniques and just do some general knowledge sharing.
