IGDA Charlotte brings you the Jump Start Game Jam! Jump up and get down...and develop games, have fun and merriment with other developers, partake in raffles, prizes, and food (OH MY)!
A game jam is a gathering of game developers for the purpose of planning, designing, and creating one or more games within a short span of time. IGDA Charlotte is going to give you the opportunity to work with other developers in our locale!
You will have access to CPCC's Simulation and Game Development program's labs, but feel free to bring your own laptop/desktop (make sure you have your own cords and accessories. We urge you to bring your own hardware, but we have lab computers for those that can't bring their own hardware.
There are no team limits and you are not required to join a team, but we highly suggest working with 3 or 4 others to make sure that your team doesn't get too crowded (Too many cooks!)
Don't want to program? Bring some materials and develop a non digital game! All is fair in love and games! (Seriously though make sure you bring your materials, or plan on visiting Target for supplies during the day)
9 hours where IGDA Charlotte's Game Jam will begin on September 24th (Saturday) at Noon until 9pm.
But after this Game Jam, you can bet that IT AIN'T OVER YET!
You/Your team will take what you all have developed and continue to work on your game throughout the month of October. By October 21st you will then submit your game (Must be playable). We will provide more information on showcasing your games as we move closer to that date.
The first step is to register! Save the date and make sure that you let us know that you will be at the Game Jam by signing up below. This will help us know how many developers to expect.
If you want to participate in the IGDA Charlotte Game Showcase, but can't attend during the Game Jam (on September 24th), then please make sure you register by 11:59PM on Sunday September 25th. You MUST be registered by this date to enter into the IGDA Charlotte Game Showcase!
