Description

What is HeroJam?

HeroJam hosts charity game jams committed to helping kids in hospitals around the world. We support Child's Play Charity, providing kids in hospitals with toys, books, and games. 100% of all donations go to Child's Play to help kids in need.

HeroJam was founded by Luke Miller in late 2016. The goal of HeroJam was to bring Child's Play Charity to an event for Rochester Institute of Technology students to participate in. After nearly a year of ideas, the idea of a charity game jam was chosen and has since proven hugely successful. The first event in Spring of 2017 was filled in less than four days.

About this event:

The fall HeroJam will be from October 27th to the 29th. We will be starting at 6:30PM in GOL-1400 with a kickoff, explaining what HeroJam is, the prizes participants can expect and how to get them. At 7:00PM, the event will formally start, and the timer on the game jam will start counting down. The game jam will conclude at 1:00PM, after which we will judge the games created. After judging, prizes will be given out. We are expecting the event to formally end at 3:00PM.

During the event, participants will create a game based around a single theme, given out during the start of the event. Participants will only have 42 hours to create the game, working in teams or by themselves.




Important information:

Participants will be able to work in teams of up to five(5) members. If a team would like to earn prizes, they must donate a combined minimum of $10 per member. This is a total. If a team member cannot donate, the other members can cover their donation.

Donating is NOT required. Participants can still join for free. Donations are only required to be entered for prizes.

Meals will be provided free of charge. The meals will be first come, first serve however.

We are space limited. We only have space for around 70 participants in our labs and this space is first come, first serve. However, you may work from home or other labs. Judging will be held in the labs.
