At game jams, people get together and make video games in a limited time, with a surprise theme. We make complete, playable games, working individually, or in small groups, starting from scratch. The results are shown round and shared on the Internet.
It’s enormous fun and a great way to learn and gain skills!
Otterly is organising game jams for this year’s GameCity festival (26th-30th October 2010 in Nottingham).
Everyone is welcome! We’d especially like to introduce jamming to people who haven’t jammed before, so come along and have a go. If you’re an experienced jammer or game maker, please come along too. Perhaps consider teaming up with a newbie.
Please see the full announcement for details and sign-up. Tell your friends!
