Peg Jam 2019 is Coming Your Way - This November!

About this Event

Join us for Peg Jam 2019 and collaborate with devs, designers, musicians, and others to challenge yourself to create new and exciting games, interactive experiences and everything in between!

These weekends are a great starting point for people looking to get into game development and an incredible chance to collaborate. No matter your experience, if you love games, can self direct your work, and have a positive attitude a "Jam" is a perfect place to showcase your talents.

Game jams are a great opportunity to learn about our local industry and meet people from the community to collaborate and build video games over the course of a weekend. Work in a space full of programmers, artists, musicians and more to rapidly develop a working video game in a supportive environment. If you've ever been curious about what it takes to make a game this is your chance!

FAQ

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.

Do I need a computer or other equipment to participate in this event?

Yes, ideally a computer with your game development software installed and ready to go. Alternatively, there's nothing stopping you from building a board game, card game, or any other game creation if you'd prefer.

Do I need experience to participate?

No experience is required, but work is largely self-directed and requires a certain degree of self-commitment. We encourage attendees to come in with a basic set of skills or go through some tutorials before the event.

Do I need to have a team? Can I work solo?

You can work either as a team or solo. If you are looking for a team or have a team and are looking for additional members, we will help match you up.
