RunJumpDev – Global Game Jam 2016 is an event where participants come together over a weekend and build new games. Everyone is given a common theme or constraint and the fun is seeing the different, creative directions that people take the idea. In the beginning people pitch game ideas and teams are formed. The teams then build small games or prototypes and finally present them at the end of the weekend.
RunJumpDev and BCTC are working together to host Global Game Jam at BCTC’s Newtown Pike Campus. TheBluegrass Business Development Partnership is sponsoring the event, so meals and snacks will be provided and everyone can concentrate on making awesome games!
Global Game Jam is for 48 hours from Friday, January 29th at 5pm to Sunday 31st at 5pm. Then we will have a results party. We encourage participants to spend as much time working on their games, but it’s fine if you need to come and go. And if you can’t participate in the event, you can attend the results party. Come see the games, eat some food, and talk about how the games were made.
