Hi there. I hope you can make it to this Saturday’s Game Jam starting at 6! There’ll be food & prizes. If you bring your laptops or hard drives we’ll have lots & lots of software & plugins to share. I & a few people from different dept’s can help you with VR, animation, 3D, and visual programming.

Also, we’re raffling off Amazon gift cards, the closest thing to a form of currency they’d let us give away, and a few other prizes. A raffle means all you have to do is show up to get a chance to win. You don’t gotta win a contest, wear a funny hat or whatever. All you gotta do is show up. Tell your friends.

We’ll focus on a few visual programming plugins like Blox, Bolt, and Nottorus with a few demos, and lots of other stuff like game consoles, flying monkeys.

A game jam is an event where individuals and teams get together to make a game in a very short amount of time. It’s a way to meet new friends and collaborators, learn a lot, and make something fun!

Featured Unity plugins allow anyone to make playable games quickly, no programming experience necessary. Visual programming enables making games without knowing any code.

Programmers and experienced game designers will give tutorials for Unity3D and many of the visual programming plugins. We’re here to help!

Today’s game jam is a kickoff for projects you might want to take through winter break. Team up and make a game to show next semester and enter to exhibit your work, win even better prizes, and publish your games!
