Chicago Game Jam

Today I’m happy to announce the second annual Chicago Game Jam, scheduled from September 28-30 at The Nerdery. Last year’s event saw groups competing throughout the weekend to produce innovative games based around the theme of “Chaos Theory.” One of those teams has since gone on to make the critically acclaimed mobile game Organ Trail. Another, Team Sweet, continues to work together on designing games.

I cannot stress enough the comradery and promise for opportunity that you will experience at this event. Game jams are the embodiment of what IGDA Chicago stands for: bringing people together to improve the craft of game development and foster a community of inspiration.

Whether you’ve participated in 20 game jams or none, you are welcome to sign up and join us for what will be another exciting weekend of fun, inspiration, and game development.

Thank you,

Jay Margalus

Chair, IGDA Chicago
