Event description

Description

The Global Game Jam hopes to bring together talented and creative individuals from within the community. It is a unique opportunity for people to push their skills and challenge their way of working. Participants work concurrently with game developers around the globe; we rally around a central theme, and then have 48 hours to create a game.

Here is the link to the site on Global Game Jam's official page: South Bend

FAQ:

* Is it just about video games?

No. You can create whatever type of game you would like; video game, card game, dice game, etc.

* Will I have the skills to contribute?

Yes. If you are interested in games, you can contribute. The weekend is to have fun, make a game, and perhaps learn some new skills.

* Do I need to bring a computer?

If you want to make a video game, it helps to have a computer. However, last year we had people contribute art to the games by drawing them by hand. The drawings were then scanned and incorporated into the game by somebody with a computer. So, the only limit to how you might contribute is your imagination.

* What platform will be used for video games?

That's entirely up to you as a participant! You can use anything from more sophisticated languages targeting Windows or Mac, or you might opt to use some of the simpler environments like Scratch or Kodu.

* Is there an age requirement or limit?

The Global Game Jam is open to anyone young, old, or in between! The only restriction is that we ask for a parent to accompany anyone under the age of 16.

* Where should I park?

Surface parking is free and available right outside the building.

What if I get hungry?

We will be providing beverages and some food. There are also several restaurants and coffee shops located closely in the surrounding downtown area.

What is the refund policy?

All purchases are refundable up to 30 days ahead of the event.
