Description

Interactive Experience Game Jam 2017

Pacific Science Center and AIE are partnering up for the first ever Game Jam focused on creating highly interactive experiences around a Pacific Science Center theme. IEGJ 2017 begins with a 7:00 pm kick-off on Friday, November 3rd and runs through 7:00 pm on Sunday, November 5th. IEGJ will take place at the science center, filling the hallowed halls that the Terracotta Warriors recently departed, in other words, jamming in the shadow of awesome history.

***IMPORTANT*** Please take a few moments to complete a WSP secondary registration using this Volgistics LINK.

The secondary registration is required by Pacific Science Center since the IEGJ will be in close proximity to children during normal hours of operation. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration regarding this matter!

Check in and Arrival

Please arrive on Friday between 5:00 and 7:00 PM. You will be directed to check-in where you will be given a lanyard that will grant you access to Pacific Science Center for the remainder of the event.

Parking in general for long amounts of time is expensive around Seattle Center. We strongly suggest participants to try to come in groups to split the cost, or to park further away and bus to the event.

Overnight

Security will be onsite and assisting overnight, which means the Pacific Science Center will be open the full 48 hours with no interruptions. Please note that there will be a specific door that all participants are supposed to use after hours, located on the North side of the Pacific Science Center entering near the Paccar IMAX Theater. More information will be provided at the event. There will be space provided to sleep overnight, but as always, take care of yourself! You are definitely welcome to head home to sleep, shower, and come back the next day for more jamming.

Food

Food and drinks are available from the Food Court located on the second floor of the Seattle Center Armory, and all around the surrounding area. Dick's is a Jam favorite, located just 2 blocks from Key Arena, and open late! There is also a McDonalds, QFC, Safeway, and Metropolitan Market within walking distance.

Equipment

As usual for all game jam type events, everyone will need to bring whatever they need to be self-sufficient, including any computer equipment and peripherals. Basic network access will be provided through WiFi and ethernet. We suggest to have all your required software, files, and assets downloaded and saved locally, as cloud services may not always be accessible. Additionally, please try to avoid downloading large files whenever possible.

Updates

We will provide some exciting updates soon, so stay posted!
