We got some awesome prizes this time thanks to Professors Patrick and Stephanie!

What is a Game Jam?

A Game Jam is a competition where you make the best game in a limited time (12 hours in our case). At the end of the day, we play & vote for the top 3 teams who will win prizes, and all games are showcased here!

You don’t need to know how to make a game at all to join. In fact, a few of the beginners team won previous game jams, who had ZERO experience when they sat down. You can learn on spot and make a fantastic game!

The theme of the game will be announced right before it starts, and you will take 5 minutes to come up with ideas. Then, you’ll share them with others and decide which one you want – and join their team. If you don’t like anyone’s ideas, you can work solo, which is no problem at all. Some experienced people will be around to help out. Try to have a vary of jobs in your team (programmer, artist, musician, etc).

Rules:
1-4 people per team
3 categories to win (Aesthetics, Innovation, People’s Choice)
No limit on genre or creativity, software or analog
Cannot use assets you’ve made previously
Can use anything you find on google or stores that are free; have to credit each source.

Prizes:
People’s Choice: Xbox Wired Controller + $20 Steam Gift Card per person
Aesthetics: $5 Safeway Gift Card per person
Innovation: $5 Safeway Gift Card per person
*Safeway Gift Card may be $5 or more depending on number of people
