Jam Site Description: 

Due to the weather, the College has been closed since Monday and will remain closed on Friday, Feb 3

The North Texas Game Jam will be held virtually via Zoom.

Check the online platforms [above] for the Zoom link.


Friday Evening will be a Keynote, Theme, and Brainstorm held on Zoom

After introductions and orientation to the space, we will watch the keynote and the theme announcement (for those who long for "the good old days.") The theme for this year's Global Game Jam will be announced on January 28th, so you can view it beforehand (but act surprised)!

During the game pitches, we will write each idea on a whiteboard, and then everyone can join the teams with the ideas they find interesting. Please allow others to join your team if they sign up under your game pitch since the game jam is a good way to meet new people and network. Each team should have a producer, responsible for creating the team and uploading the game and its assets to the GGJ website.

We will jam all day Saturday! 

We will present our games in the afternoon on Sunday.
