Progressive Game Jam: Summertime @ Capsity!

After our IGDA Sac Indie Arcade event in mid-April, one of the most requested events was for our next Game Jam! The inspiration & drive within our Sacramento Indie Game Dev community was beyond exciting to see!

Well, we're bringing our next Game Jam back to good 'ol Capsity! Our theme: Summertime!

June 21st just happens to be the 1st official day of Summer. So, why not?

Of important note: Not only will this be a Summer-themed Game Jam, but this will be a 1st in what will, hopefully, be a set of Progressive Game Jams leading to the final Game Jam before our next Indie Arcade event in April 2015. But, it'll be up to the local Sacramento Community to bring that dream into fruition.

Ready to find out more? Then join us! :)

    Such a great event! Met so many interesting and talented people and had a blast collaborating with everyone. There were so many cool ideas we came up with. Thank you Gabriel for putting this on and can't wait until the next one!

      It's my pleasure, sir! This is just the beginning! :) I want you all to make me proud as we progress throughout this year.

    A HUGE thank you to all who showed yesterday. The determination & focus on all of your faces really gives me hope that you're all going to do your part in making Sacramento THE Indie Game Dev Hub! Big nerd hugs to you all!

    Will there be teams? or is it strictly individual? I ask because I plan on arriving alone, but would prefer programming on a team.

      Awesome! I'm on my way now, and I'm pretty excited.

      Thanks! I will probably be 15 minutes late. There was a last minute hang up, but I'm on my way now. Please count me in when you divide up into groups!

    Hi there! I'm new to the group. Is Capsity a large venue? Will the front desk be able to direct me to the group? I look forward to meeting everyone there. :)

      Hey Sebastian! It's a decent sized venue. But, we'll all be right up front & center. You will not miss us. Promise. :)

    I've developed a severe case of agoraphobia and I dont know if I am going to come, its a 90 mile trip and I wish there was something like this closer. I know you are all my type of people/geek. Maybe if I had a job i wouldn't mind this as a small expense of a trip. I just dont know anymore what do to...

      Understood. No worries. Take care of life and hopefully we'll see you soon enough!

    Never been to a game jam so was looking forward to coming but I won't be around Sac this weekend.

      It's cool. There will be a next one in late July/early August. Info on that will be on the July newsletter.

    This will be my first in-person Game Jam. What do I bring? A computer? A programmer? Snacks?

    1 · June 17, 2014

    • Gabriel G.

      Bring yourself, honestly. :) But, if you want to bring anything/anyone else (especially snacks, YUM!) then by all means!

    Bummed that the boys and I can't make this one since we'll be out of town. We just did a family game jam, and I think their Construct 2 skills may be up to the challenge. (Thanks Devin Becker!) Next time I hope!

    I'm real excited about this one.

      Me too man! I'll be even more excited if people show up to the 2nd one in late July/early August. ;-)
