Philly's annual 24-hour game jam is returning September 16-17.
***This year's celebrity host: Greg Lobanov*** (via Skype)
Terra Hall, 12 Floor
University of the Arts
211 S. Broad St., Phila
Saturday, Sept 16 - Sunday, Sept 17
Doors: Noon Saturday
Jam: 1pm Saturday - 1pm Sunday
Judging and awards: 1pm- 3pm Sunday
We will all get together, in one location, receive a theme, form teams, and make games based on that theme. All in 24 hours. Then, the games will be judged and awards given.
Not at all. Pre-formed teams are ok, but discouraged. Part of the magic of jams is working with people you haven’t worked with before. We will be facilitating team formation at the event.
Yes, of course! Tabletop and other analog games are totally welcome.
We will provide space, tables, chairs, power, internet, restrooms and limited places to crash (couches, comfy chairs).
Anything you need to make your game: computer, monitor, Wacom tablets, analog game materials.
Overnight gear: sleeping bag or blanket, toiletries.
Food and drink: feel free to bring or buy in the area. There’s a Wawa right downstairs and lots of stores/restaurants/cafes close by.
Nope, but you’ll miss all the slaphappy 5am jam crazies.
Sure, let us know on the sign up form so we can get the theme to you. Also, know that it will be difficult to participate in team formation remotely, but this is a good option if you’re solo jamming or have a remote team.
