IGDAMJAM 2013: Melbourne Global Game Jam 25-27 January 2013
Friday, 25 January 2013 at 4:00 PM - Sunday, 27 January 2013 at 7:00 PM (AEDT)
It's back and it's on Australia Day weekend. It's Global Game Jam and IGDA Melbourne are hosting January's Game Jam at a new location. Thanks to The Academy of Interactive Entertainment, we'll be jamming in Melbourne House.
The goal is to come together and make a video game, or non-digital game like a board game or card game. Participants rapidly prototype game designs and hopefully inject new ideas to help grow the game industry. We share a common theme and constraints. We ask participants to create a game from beginning to end in a prescribed time (maximum of 48 hours). The brief time span is meant to help encourage creative thinking to result in small but innovative and experimental games.
If you'd like to join in and create a game in a weekend, we'll supply to space, the like minded people, the food and the equipment you need for an amazing creative experience.
