This year, DeFrag is teaming up with JDE for our annual Game Jam event is here! If you've ever had interest in making your own game, this is the event for you. This is a weekend long event, beginning on Friday the 25th at 6PM in CDM, room 924. Along with the 9th floor, we will also have floors 4 & 7 for this event. Access to any other floors during this time is strictly off limits. Check below for a brief schedule of events for the entire weekend.
Friday, Jan. 25th
6PM - Event begins, check in/registration in CDM 924 followed by a prep talk and announcement of the game jam's theme, formation of game jam teams will also be done around this time
7:30PM-11PM - Teams will have the remaining time after announcements to formulate their game ideas. Afterwards, spend the rest of the night at DePaul if you wish working on your game and get a headstart ahead of the competition.
This year we will be having the building reserved for both nights, so we can have teams stay overnight in the CDM Building. Once the building closes at 11, no one is allowed entry nor reentry back into the building. If you wish to leave the building at any time, you can do so (but please let your team and the site organizers know before hand!)
Hang out with us all night, or get home to get some sleep and come back early. Coordinate with your teams beforehand on what time you'll all meet again on Saturday.
