Description

The largest game development event in Las Vegas returns in its third year to show you how to create videogames in the course of a single weekend!

The Las Vegas Summer Game Jam is Conner Torres's free two-day education event and competitive "hackathon" open for anyone interested in game development to participate. The weekend features workshops taught by professional developers as well as food, prizes, and opportunities to learn from and network with real videogame creators.

Workshops taught include introductions to Unity, Unreal Engine, 3D Modeling, Animation, Game Monetization, and much more.

FAQs

I'm interested in game development, but I'm only a begginner. Is this event for me?

This event is especially for you!

Typically, the intermediate to advanced developers with experience will focus on the competition aspect of the event during Saturday and Sunday, using the time to form teams and begin development of a project for Sunday night's voting, while beginners like you will spend their time in the workshops learning how to make games by proffesional developers.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Downtown Las Vegas has lots of paid parking lot options, including a paid lot behind the Work In Progress Building.

What can I bring into the event?

If you plan on participating in the competition, you should bring your own laptop or desktop computer you can setup. The workshops are practical, hands on development, so plan on bringing a laptop to the workshops with the nessessary software installed (which will be emailed out ahead of the event.) Don't leave anything overnight at the event.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Please bring either a printed or digital ticket from eventbrite (i.e. on your phone) with you to the event once registered so we can sign you in. Because of our sucess in past years and space constraints, we are limiting the number of attendees.
