IGDA Chicago, Columbia's AlphaLab, and Depaul's JDE are teaming up with a classic game jam you don't want to miss!

Game Developers of all abilities in the greater Chicago area are welcome to join us at DePaul University August 2-4 to produce their own original games inspired by the Atari-era of gaming!

The event will begin with a brief orientation at 7pm on Friday evening. Jammers are invited to work through the weekend at DePaul, culminating in game evaluations and a game showcase Sunday Afternoon.

Select games will get the chance to be featured by IGDA Chicago at Bit Bash on August 17-18 at MSI.

Stay tuned for more details!
