For the fifth year in a row, the Cleveland Game Developers Meetup group is excited to host another Global Game Jam event here in Cleveland! At Global Game Jam locations around the world, teams of artists, coders, designers and musicians collaborate to build games over a weekend based on a specific theme. The Cleveland Game Devs Meetup Group will host this 2015 site at the LaunchHouse's coworking hub. Thanks to LaunchHouse for lending us the excellent space!
Your ticket price includes snacks and beverages all weekend long as well as a pizza dinner and networking opportunity on Friday night. Keynote speakers and the theme announcement will start at 6:00 PM Friday night. Final game demos and presentations will start at 3:00 PM Sunday.
Participants may stay/sleep at LaunchHouse overnight (bring a pillow), but re-entry will not be permitted between midnight and 10 AM. A ticket is required to attend, even if you just want to watch.
People interested in working with a team may form it in advance or take part in pitch sessions on Friday evening that will help make potential matches. Solo work is also an option. Participants will need to bring their own laptops or desktops and whatever software or technology they need for creating games. Wifi internet access will be available. Participants also have the option to build “paper prototype” games or board games using whatever supplies they wish to bring.
