If you have a personal computer to use, please bring it! We have more participants registered than computers!
WE ARE DELAYING THE START OF THE JAM TO 8am ON SATURDAY DUE TO HAZARDOUS ROAD CONDITIONS FROM THE INCLEMENT WEATHER. WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
Thanks for signing up to participate in the 2014 Global Game Jam! I wanted to send you some information about the Jam (what times, what to expect, what to bring, etc...)
Location - Academy of Interactive Entertainment
537 Cajundome Blvd. (LITE Center)
Lafayette, LA 70506
Times - Friday 5PM-12AM
We will NOT be open for the entire 48 hours. We MAY extend times if needed, but don't assume that we will be open all night. You can bring pillows and blankets in the case that we extend times (or if you need your afternoon nap), but if you are a minor, please adhere to the closing times and have someone pick you up by 12AM each night.
Please remind them that the facility will be locked and to ring you on your phone when they are here to pick you up.
You are to provide your own snacks and meals. There are multiple fast food restaurants in the area as well as Rouses grocery store. There are also vending machines located in LITE. No alcohol is allowed on premises!
Please arrive here by 5PM on Friday. At that time we will find out the theme for this year's game jam and split everyone into groups.
The LITE building will be locked during the jam. Please be prompt each day. IF you come later and find that you are locked out, please CALL the AIE office at 456-1848 and if someone hears the phone and answers it, we might be nice and come let you in! If you cannot attend all of the times, please notify one of the staff members.
Please know that AIE, LITE, or GGJ are not responsible for lost or stolen items. Please tend to your possessions while participating.
The AIE computers are to be used for GGJ ONLY. You may bring your personal laptops and use those for internet usage. You can also use your personal computers for GGJ, but you will not be provided with any software to use on your personal computers.
We are asked not to tweet about or post on any social media sites about the theme of the GGJ until all sites have begun. Each location begins at 5PM in their time zone, so please refrain from posting anything about GGJ until you are told that you can!
