The Global Game Jam is a world-wide event in which participants are given a theme and challenged to creating a game over 48 hours. For 2012, it will be taking place from January 27-29th.
For more information, please see check out the official Global Game Jam site.
Interested in helping out? DePaul’s Global Game Jam could use volunteers to drop by and mentor participants a bit, particularly designers or producers. Please contact us if you’re interested in helping out January 27th or 28th! Email: info [at] igdachicago.com
Last but not least, we’ll soon be announcing details about our Global Game Jam Play Party, where you can check out the local games produced during the GGJ! Stay tuned
