I'll be at the University of Denver location January 27th-29th competing in the Global Game Jam to make the best game based on a common theme along with teams from across the world. I've never participated in something like this before...sleeping under your desk, eating junk food, struggling under an impossible timeframe to make a game that doesn't suck...wait, that's just like mainstream games!
Regardless, I'm really looking forward this!
The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event occurring annually in late January. GGJ brings together thousands of game enthusiasts participating through many local jams around the world. GGJ is a project of the International Game Developers Association (IGDA).
