New Media Manitoba, IGDA Winnipeg & the Winnipeg Game Collective present Ludum Dare 41 - Game Jam!
Game Jams are a great (and fun) opportunity to network and work directly with programmers, artists, musicians to rapidly develop a working video game. If you've ever been curious about what it takes to make a game this is your chance. Absolutely no previous experience is required as we want everybody regardless of skill level to get involved and be a part of the community. We need you, whether it's your first jam or you're a seasoned vet.
What is a game jam?
A game jam is a hackathon for video games. It is a gathering of people for the purpose of planning, designing, and creating one or more games within a short span of time, usually ranging between 24 and 72 hours, and some even longer.
