Game Jam #1
The first game jam has been organized for August 12-14, thanks to the openness of a club called Iowa Game-Dev Friendship. The goal of this game jam is to explore meaningful gameplay through developing several prototypes of a mechanic or other game element and then critically analyze the prototypes and share the result.
In addition to being hosted on-site at BitMethod in Des Moines, Iowa, USA; it will also be hosted online. I’m still working out the details, but it will most likely involve setting up a UStream and/or video conference. Will Canada has a post about the game jam on his site, too. Spread the word!
