MEGA presents Newbies & Vets Game Jam
Sun, Oct 18, 2020
Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science
Want to make a game while quarantining at home? MEGA is excited to announce that the 2020 Newbies and Vets Game Jam will be taking place virtually from October 16-18! Whether you're new to making games or you're a veteran with years of game development experience, all are welcome during the 2020 Newbies and Vets Game Jam! We will be announcing a whole new game jam format so that this year's game jam can take place fully online.
(SIGN UP BY 10/14 -- DETAILS BELOW)
What's a game jam? A game jam is an event where participants work together to create a video game from scratch in a short amount of time. From level design to art direction to programming, all skill sets are welcome! The Newbies and Vets Game Jam is specifically designed with beginners in mind, so anyone from any major is welcome to participate!
This year we'll be offering both team and individual signups. For individuals, we will be creating teams based on preferences and experience levels (so newbies can be teamed up with vets!).
Signups close October 14, so be sure to get your form in early! Sign up here: https://forms.gle/ViyMc1fEwFV1yJNLA
