SPONSORS
Ludei: Maybe sponsoring this Game Jam too. They are the creators of CocoonJS. A set of tools that lets you develop your game using web technologies such as HTML and javascript so you can package them for not only Mobile but Ouya as well!

And we are working on getting more! :-)

 

COST

It'll be $10. This will be for covering the space/supplies. See you guys there!!

 

TECHNOLOGIES YOU CAN USE

Since Ouya is built on top of the Android platform you can use just about anything to build your games with it! HTML5/Javascript, Flash, Unity, and many more!

    It was great! I learned a lot and the format made me "finish" a game.

    I was recently thinking of getting into game jams and game development in general (just joined today). I don't have any experience in game development at all, though. Is this game jam geared more towards experienced developers? Would a total beginner get any use or benefit out of this?

    Thanks

      Of course buddy! We welcome all new people. It's a very friendly environment. You can use the time to learn a new game development tool or spend the time just watching others make games and asking questions.

    Not too familiar with game jams, are any resources people need to bring to be able to participate?

      The only thing you will need to bring is a laptop. We will supply anything else you need. Just to give a quick summary of what a game jam is essentially when you spend a weekend building a game with team of other people.
