Description

A weekend-long game jam for gamers, hackers, artists, and everyone else.

Games are fun. They entertain us, relax us, make us cry. But they can also empower, unite, and change minds!

Take part in a weekend-long Game Jam happening at the same time in Watsonville and Salinas! This unique event will bring together our communities to learn how to create games for self-expression in a fun, dynamic format.

Join us this December 10th and 11th to play and make games, to connect with one another, and show the impact video games can have in the world!

No experience required. Free t-shirts! Free food!

The Deets


This is a first-of-its-kind event, and the first game jam organized specially for the Watsonville-Salinas region.

The jam will take place at the same time at the Digital NEST and Alisal High School. Jammers will form teams to play and make games together for an entire weekend!

At the end, teams will showcase their work to family and friends in a live video stream shared between the two locations.

You will learn programming concepts in Javascript, the Twine interactive fiction engine, and how to tell stories and express your feelings and ideas using the power of video games.

We'll have computers and food for you, all you gotta do is show up!


Turn your dreams into games!
