Description

Come help us create educational games for hospitals!

Playcrafting is teaming up with Extra Life to present an incredible game jam! Join us for a weekend-long hackathon as we gather to create educational games for hospitals!

The event is the first part of a 2 weekend special event to raise money for UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals. The game jam portion will take place May 5th-7th, followed by a 24 hours live stream game-fest fundraiser on Saturday May 13th. All games created at the jam will be invited to showcase their games on the 13th to a crowd of over 500 people! There will be games, activities, prizes and so much more as we raise money for UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals.

For Attendees:

The site will be open starting Friday evening (May 5th) at the Google Launchpad in San Francisco (301 Howard Street) to meet each other, come up with ideas, form into teams, and begin hacking. Work will continue through Saturday (May 6th), and end Sunday (May 7th) when the teams will then present their final projects. The site will be open 24 hours - so pack sleeping materials if you plan on staying. Meals will be provided on site.

The event is for all! This includes developers, designers, artists, and other folks who can help create awesome games for a great cause.
